Just got some e-mail with really bad news: My standing gig at Southside 815 with the JohnDC All-Stars has been canceled. I’ve had that gig for oh, at least a year and a half now. Worse, that was my sole standing gig — and as a result, after next week, I will have no gigs on my schedule. That will be the first time this has occurred since at least 1993. I’ve gotten close a couple of times, but never have I looked at a blank slate. Looks like it’s time for me to hit the open mic circuit again and find some musicians.
