I'm what you might call a shade aficianado. Now that temperatures are rising in Texas and summer is approaching, I am practicing my skill at selecting good shade spots every day.
(Rule of thumb: You can tell someone is insane, if they are sitting or standing in the direct sun.)
I have played some shady venues in my day. Some very shady, mainly because they were indoors. The outdoor venues are less shady, naturally.
Here's a song I wrote with Jamie Lin Wilson and Jason Eady. Jamie sang this with me at a shady recording studio.
