Saturday: Bass lesson, with special guest Jim Peterson on saxophone. I'm happy and relieved we got to run through my full set with all three performers before the show. I have one more lesson to do any further fine-tuning (so to speak). Later Saturday I hung out with jeremyrandall. I was hoping to see the Hi-Nobles at Bender's later that evening, but was too tired; stayed home with Ziggy, processed photos, and watched more Hell's Kitchen reruns instead.
Sunday: Ziggy and I went to Oakland late morning to visit Charles and Tony (my best man and usher from our wedding). Enjoyed seeing their house finally, and had a great lunch at New World Vegetarian. Then we went to my friend/former co-worker Jason's studio in West Oakland to rehearse with the band Two Fifths. Rehearsal went reasonably well. I feel pretty confident with the music at this point. Have one more rehearsal with Steve before the show.
