Sunday nights are boring, what with having to go to work the next day...but you know, you really should go out and do something. The weekend is your time and you should not give any of your time to "the man" until he's paying you for it on Monday morning. As such, I'm asking you to spend your time this evening doing something fun: ThouShaltNot is playing at The Pegasus Lounge. The Dark Clan is opening and both Wreckcreation and Illusion of Joy are on the bill as special guests. The doors open at 8:00PM, at which point, if you've purchased a ticket in advance, they'll just let you in, otherwise, you pay $12 for admittance. Sound good? Do take my suggestion for what to do with your waning weekend under consideration.

Here are the songs I played last night at the 31st Street Pub as one of the two opening acts for Christian Death:

Beloved
Shameful Ground
Psychosexual
October
Oblivion
A Place Outside




I have to say, despite being exhausted as hell, I had a great night. I thought I wasn't into Christian Death, but after seeing them live...fuck - I have to really reassess my stand on the group and dig far deeper into their discography. They were awesome live and I kept hearing song after song that I was really enjoying. Also, I talked to a couple of the band members after the show - including Valor - good people.

So, you all know that I - as in Illusion of Joy, because the "band" only has one member - am one of two bands/musicians (Illusion of Joy not technically being a band, what with only having one member) opening for Christian Death at the 31st Street Pub (located in Pittsburgh's Strip District - $15 at the door/21+ only). None too shabby, methinks...I mean, Christian Death isn't exactly an unknown entity in the Goth scene (to put it mildly and play it coy).

The doors to the venue open at 10:00PM - I'll be playing not long after the masses start shuffling in. Everyone reading this (within reasonable travel distance) should be among the shuffling.

Also, I really should not be drinking a caffeinated beverage right now...

It was a very late show, so much, much gratitude to those who stuck it out and stayed around.

I was recently alerted that the PayPal link to purchase tickets for the Illusion of Joy show at the Shadow Lounge on the 20th is not working. I am currently looking into this in the hopes of having it resolved as soon as possible. If you are having any problems, please contact me about it.

You all realise that I have never played live in my adopted hometown of Pittsburgh, right? Well, ladies, gentlemen, boys, girls and all others, this is about to change...

On Sunday, April 20th, Illusion of Joy will be playing along with Noland Jenkins, John O’Hallaron and a handful of other musicians at The Shadow Lounge, located at 5972 Baum Boulevard. The doors open at 6:15PM with the show starting at 6:30PM. Tickets are $10 at the door, but only $7 if purchased in advance. This show is for those 18 and over only; 21 to get intoxicated. You can purchase advance tickets by hunting me down in person if you're local, or you can buy them at my website, through PayPal. Unless you order them the weekend of the show, they will be mailed to you.

So, there you have it - the local live début of Illusion of Joy. Show up for the miserableness, stay for the angst. Rest assured, I'll be posting another reminder...because I'm annoying like that.
