Fizz setlist 6-14-2010

Fun night at Fizz last night. This past weekend was CUBE (the Chicago Underground Blues Experience, which organizes around the Chicago Blues Festival), so there were a number of blues dancers in the house. I tried to mix in some blues and bluesy-sounding material starting around 10:15--not sure that they approved, but whatever. On the whole, my set turned out to be a bit faster than normal; see here and here for the data. I was pretty happy with this set, I felt like I was leading the crowd the whole time--giving them styles that they wanted to hear, and then moving on to the next thing, before they got sick of the first. I also had quite a few people coming up and talking to me, asking questions, and complimenting the music (always nice!). I ended up passing out a few cards. (So if you took one and are now reading this...welcome to the blog! Leave a comment!) Here's what I played, from 9:00 to about 11:30:
