New Year's Eve

Yacht Rock closed out 2012 with one last near-riot of a gig at the Park Tavern.  Everything you'd expect from 1,804 drunk people.  It's always amusing for a minute:  girls crying, guys trying live up to being the biggest douchebags ever.  Then they're just people in the way while I'm trying to load out.  The Park Tavern is a great place to play and the fans are pretty incredible, but I think it's time to invest in some security people to keep everything cool.

The gig itself was pretty great--we had a good time and everybody played well.  I had (I think) the best solos I've ever played on Reminiscing, LA Lindsay, and Good Thing.  I was feelin' it!

We finished at 12:15 AM.  Yay!  I was home an hour and a half later.  Not too bad.
