Opening for us was Nefrit El-Or. Nefrit is a young singer/song writer originally from Israel, now living in DC. She's got a strong, clear voice and a pretty good stage presence. She did about an hour set, setting up the crowd for our part in the show.
We got up and began our show at about 10pm. The first set started a little slower than we might have normally liked, but people were dancing by the third or fourth tune. And they pretty much stayed that way for the rest of the night. They were good spirited and enjoyed themselved quite a bit -- it had to be at least 120 degrees up near the stage (the venue could have used a little ventilation).
The three of us played pretty well. Some boo-boos here and there, but nothing that was too egregious. We were well received by four hundred (!) or so people who came through the door, and we ended up selling about 40-45 CDs. All in all, quite the good night.
Much thanks to Rob for helping us out by running the boards!
