I played a company gig last night at Hotel Solamar. I was told it was going to be outside on the fourth floor and that it might be cold out there. At the same time I was told there would be heaters and there would be a tent.
Funny how information can be mis-interpreted. I was going to be wearing my tuxedo and thought that would be warm enough. And I assumed a lot of things that can never be guaranteed at a gig.
Anyway, I was going into this gig feeling sick with coughing and generally aches and pains. To make a long story short, this gig felt like it would never end. It was torture and I was shivering the whole night. I definitely needed an overcoat but the fact is I don’t own one, being that San Diego usually doesn’t have such cold night time temperatures. Just one more clue of Global Warming? Perhaps.
So, I’ve been resting up today and taking Nyquil. Just trying to rest up for another gig tomorrow downtown, and a possible rehearsal afterwards.
Must rest now….
