It's looking like I'm going to be relocating to Pittsburgh, PA sometime in mid/late July. The main reason is that California is just too damn expensive. I've been living month to month working full time + music stuff, and am not getting any closer to my goals, so it's time. As much as there's some bitterness about not being able to stay in the area I grew up in due to rising costs, I'm looking forward to the new start and new area.
So, why make my own narcissistic post about this? Well, for a few reasons.
(1) For anyone living in Pittsburgh (or PA in general), I'd love to hear about the city more. The decision has already been made (barring extreme circumstances) but I still want to get as much info as I can.
(2) If you live on the west coast and have been planning on seeing a Viking Guitar performance, there's only one more scheduled before I leave. May 3 in San Jose at 418 S Market Street, San Jose (https://www.facebook...boozeanimerock/). If you can, please come and help send me off. :-)
(3) Money's going to be a little tight between now and finishing the move. I'm not one to ask for handouts, so instead, to help raise funds for the move and transition period, I've made all of the Viking Guitar stuff on bandcamp (except Legion and Warpath) PAY WHAT YOU WANT. If you want to pick up anything and toss a few bucks my way, I'd certainly appreciate it. http://vikingguitar.bandcamp.com
