NAMM 2011: Lisa Loeb Live

Today I got back from NAMM and have some things I wanted to share with you from the weekend and now that I'm back with reliable wi-fi, I can upload everything with ease. Lisa Loeb mentioned that she's been working on a new record with Chad Gilbert of New Found Glory. This is one of the new songs, though the title escapes me. I got there just as she started, so of her four songs, I filmed three, missing out on capturing "Wishing Heart".

If you know me at all or have ever been to my house at 3 in the morning, you know that Reality Bites is my all-time favorite movie. I have it on DVD and pretty much watch it all the time, and though I'm generally terrible with movie quotes, I can basically recite the entire script. On Thursday night I heard "Stay" at the West Coast Tavern party and it was thrown over a dance beat and I tweeted about it. The next day, I'm walking around NAMM and came across the schedule of performances at the Alfred/Daisy Rock stage and saw that Lisa was performing. Naturally, my next tweet was "OMG!:" The funny thing about that movie is that little references always appear...having a long talk with Jesse about our paths and "You and me and five bucks" comes to mind, or while having cocktails on Friday night, our friend tells us that we missed Peter Frampton or stopping off at a 7-eleven to pick up "the most profound, important invention of my lifetime...the Big Gulp." Anyway, of course Lisa indulged us.

Lisa closed her set with a song from Camp Lisa. Here's "Best Friend".


Naturally this was an incredible way to kick off my first NAMM experience. Little did I know what the weekend had in store for me.
