We actually did win








We collected our Beijing Band of the Yer ward last night at City Weekend's big awards gala. We also played two short acoustic sets. It was just Dave, Woodie and me -- how we started out 14 or 15 months ago. It sounded pretty thin, even though we were sure a lot better than we were then. We also played three original songs out of five.

The audience was basically all the owners and managers of every significant Beijing bar and restaurant. A few gave us their cards and said to contact them for gigs.

I am really quite astounded and very proud. I really can't believe we have pulled this off.
