On the way home I chatted with my mom for a bit. I can't wait to see her in a couple weeks. I hope the temperature on the East Coast goes down a little before I get there. I made myself 2(!) avocado and tomato sandwiches, and listened to a "Good Food" podcast while I took a shower. I listened to the episode where they talk to Jonathan Gold about Racion in Pasadena, and interview the author of the seminal cookbook on Catalan cuisine. It made me want to go back to Spain immediately.
Fortune smiled upon my little band yesterday, and we were able to record, so I hauled myself and my gear over to Lincoln Heights.
The goal was to finish up tracking "Are You Really Gonna Be Mine." We almost got there. We still have back-up vocals to record, but we got bass, multiple guitar parts, lead vocals, and hand claps in the can!
Mark helped us drink beer
Yes, that's tape!
Finally, around 11, I made it to Alex's, where I finally got to see the audition video we made. I'm pleased to report that it is pretty darn good, and makes me look awesome. My boyfriend's the best!
