Audience karma

We're playing at Borderlands Brewing Company for the first time tomorrow evening. I went over there tonight to get a feel for the space. A few minutes after I arrived, a man and a woman approached me. They quickly realized that I didn't recognize them—I have a horrible memory for faces—and introduced themselves. We'd originally met when Ron and I sat in on a Songwriter's Night at Monterey Court, and they signed up for our mailing list.

As it turns out, they were at Borderlands to see us. They thought we were playing tonight instead of Saturday night. Sadly, they didn't think they'd be able to make it out tomorrow. But, they said, at least they got to go to Borderlands for the first time, and they liked Shrimp Chaperone, the band that was actually playing.

I'll look on the bright side as well and take this as a good omen. Cinder Bridge hasn't even played at Borderlands yet, and we've already brought them new patrons!

Here's hoping karma works in our favor, and people who didn't mean to see us end up enjoying our music by mistake.

Borderlands Brewing Company is at 119 E. Toole Ave., Tucson, Arizona. We'll be playing from 5 to 7 p.m. on Saturday, June 11. As I discovered today, the space is fantastic. Come see us!
