World-famous guitar wanker Joe Satriani has apparently come down in the world; according to the color xerox pasted to the door of the guitar store around the corner from my apartment (of the potentiometer scandal), he's playing a free show there in a couple of weeks. Afterwords he will hang around to sign his album. Or maybe this is just his way of giving something back.
Joy, in the form of recording equipment, continues to arrive in the mail; microphones and tube preamps and digital audio converter boxes. I only half know what I'm going to with all of it.
