James has recently taken up the guitar again. He's also writing his own songs. He's become a regular at a few open mic nights in Brooklyn. As a friend and music lover, I've tried to go to all of his shows. James played at the Brooklyn Guitar School's showcase on Friday evening and I brought along my point-and-shoot camera and recorded his set. I also had to hold his guitar at one point, which I believe makes me a roadie.
He opened with The Gaslight Anthem's "Great Expectations."
Next up was his original song, "Children's Crusade." That's me providing the commentary/heckling.
He closed his set with The Killers' "When You Were Young." There's a glitch near the end when my camera stopped recording and I had to restart. Thanks to the wonders of iWeb I stitched it together. Now I know that 7 1/2 minutes is my camera's limit for continuous video.
