    What a FANTASTIC night!! It was such a treat to play this legendary venue to a packed audience of friends, family and fans, and then to celebrate with everyone long into the night afterward. I will be glowing from this night for years to come... That's not hyperbole, that's the truth. THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU, my indie meetup family!!!! :-)
