While my Guitar Gently Weeps

Last Saturday, Driftwood played at Siam’s on Lake Union. We were accompanied by the Blue Scholars, who not only great DJs but really nice guys. The theme for the evening was “Thai me up”, and a few people really got into the leather and lace theme (pictures coming soon I promise!).

Unfortunately, we are now looking for a new guitarist. There’s no “Behind the Music” story here, just that Aaron Goldfeder (our esteemed lead guitar) has left Microsoft and is travelling the world until next October. So if you know any guitarists in Seattle, let me know! Bonus points if your guitarist can double on vocals and has some songwriting inclinations!

Cinco de Mayo de Cinco!

The first thing I’m always asked about my band (me, Aaron, Brian, and Mike) is “what’s your name?” This should be a simple enough question, but we’ve had an ongoing identity crisis, and nothing has stuck to date.

On May 5th we played out at a Cinco de Mayo party under the name “El Driftwood”. It was our first big event with the current lineup (Mike joined in October as our third bass player in two years), and it was a blast. Lauren took a bunch of pictures, much tequila was consumed, and courtesy of some tapers in attendance I’ve posted recordings here.

The latest name under consideration is “Mostly Harmless”, which I find amusing. I’d love to hear your opinions in this area.
