What a day! First stop was Dirty Dog Bar where Eric wrapped up the Surrge.com party. Surrge looks like a cool way to share music, check it out if you have not. Anyway, before the show we talked with Eric’s manager Dave Morris of W. F. Leopold Management Inc. He informed us that Eric had signed with Warner Bros. Records. We also taked with Jenna Baum of Warner Bros.
Then Eric hit the stage with his bassist, Tom Craskey, and his drummer, Mark Biondi. Both have been on the road with Eric for about 8 months now. It was hot and humid, with little to no AC, and Erics voice wasn’t at it’s peak, but he gave it his all, like always.
Setlist= You Don’t Have To Believe Me, Freak Control, Oh!, Food Chain, All Over Now, Rock N Roll, Call Me Back.
We got some good pics, and I will be uploading some songs to YouTube. The video’s were taken on my tiny Kodak M853 so the sound is not great, but I did manage to get close enough that some of our musician readers should be able to make out some guitar chords. Post them here if you can, we have a lot of people asking.
Then dinner, people watching, and off to the Perez Hilton presents One Night In Austin. Robyn opened up with about 45 minutes of pop goodness. Then Eric played 4 songs. You Don’t Have To Believe Me, Oh!, Rock N Roll, and (I think) Food Chain. The place was packed and it was a good party.
