Table and Dude Garden at Kings

I had big plans to start a podcast this weekend for the Table/Dude Garden show saturday at Kings. My mom gave me a Griffin iTalk for Christmas, and I'd been waiting for an opportunity to use it. Since it was Russ DeSena's birthday, I thought Saturday would be good. I planned to interview Russ and Tom Cushman, and even have a few folks say happy birthday to Russ. I got Mikey Ross to do it, then suddenly the italk, which gave me problems when I first tried it out, wouldn't work. So, I have temporarily scrapped the podcast idea (need to take the italk to the Apple store).

Instead, I interviewed Russ and Tom on camera, so here's a five minute video of them discussing how the band formed, why they called it Table, and their working relationship (or lack thereof). This takes a long time to download, so if you have a slow connection, go to work or someone's house and try downloading it from there. (Video removed)

Later, I got a video of them performing a song. Tom told me what it was called, but I couldn't figure out what he was saying. It sounded like he said "Muggawhere," which sounds like the name of a Black Metal band. I'm sure that's not the title, but that's what I'll call it. Actually, Russ called this their Manowar song, so maybe it's called Manowar.

I also got decent video of Dude Garden doing "Brown Bagger."

I've now got a YouTube account, and I see that Myspace has video capabilities now, so I may play around with that a bit later.

You should also check out a few photos I took of the show. Check out the Flickr stream.

Some of the photos came out OK, mostly because, like at the Patty Hurst Shifter show, someone else was there taking photos with a flash. In this case it was Jodi Donkel, who is an actual class A professional photographer. She's already put at least one photo from the show on the Rock the Triangle group, so check it out. Thanks, Jodi, for letting me glom onto your flash.
