Haha! Nice stories. I counted it up one time and estimated that I've done about 3500-4000 gigs of one kind or other over the course of my life, so I've got some doozies in there for things that have happened or that have happened wile I was there - last night was just an odd one off from a string of pretty successful gigs when looking at it from a musical performance perspective.
A couple of notes, about the gig, the reason I sucked up the moth was because this gig was outside, so it was a bit warmer, and pretty high humidity. We actually we're playing at the Penderyn Estate, former home of Mario Boiardi (sone of Chef Boyardee) and more recently owned by CEO/co-owner of Nextel, Morgan O'Brien. This place is an insanely large, 22,500 sq foot house with all the trimmings and trappings.
I've also been dealing with a fair amount of stress dealing with my best friend of 10 years, my Yellow Lab Leo. He started having seizures earlier this year and had a massive cluster of seizures last Monday, really knocking him for a loop. We thought we were going to have to pull the plug but he's mostly back to normal now.
In any case, over the years I've picked up on how stress in my life can affect my playing, and that on top of dealing with tensions thanks to Bridezilla, and I'm not really surprised that I wouldn't be tip top. I just wish it had gone better.
