I attended B-Fest last weekend, and one of my goals was to catch up with Chad Plambeck and play him the song I wrote at his request. My intention was to play it for him at the hotel some time before the festival, but that didn’t work out. Knowing I probably wouldn’t have another shot, I went ahead with my first ever live performance in the presence of some 250 other movie geeks who were all energized after the first few movies. I knew I’d flub lines and get off rhythm with the chords, but I didn’t expect the biggest problem to be fighting back laughter.
