* MCats Gig 11: Perhouse-Schmidt Party

The MCats’ 11th performance.  It was a rainy, buggy, cool night.  Not ideal.  But we managed to squeeze in a couple dozen songs between downpours.  I’m told the party crowd enjoyed the show.  I wanted to dedicate one song to my wife for our anniversary (also 06/22).  We’re constantly changing our repertoire, so my choices (of the songs I sing) were few.  I chose Psycho Killer.  My other option was It’s All Been Done.  Good thing my wife understand my goofy sense of humor.
