Shimon and I

I'll be playing a spontaneous gig at Seattle's Bumbershoot festival tomorrow night with Shimon the Marimba Playing Robot and Chris Brokaw of Come and Codeine.

Should be suitably strange. The Seattle Stranger says "come and see this!"

See The Colbert Report on this guy:

If the video evidence thus-far is any indication, this fella could use a touch of self-restraint. So how did it go?

The performance wasn't great. The rehearsals were quite cool and had some very striking moments. But I think Shimon and I would need a bit more time together to do a true mind-meld.

Very late on finding this out. I have only I question: Shimon a diva that demanded twice over union wages to play with you?
