Davey at Blackbird

Shift, Davey!

My friend David Goad (Kali-​Ra, Of the Tower) and his wife Alicia are head­ing to Europe for vaca­tion soon, and he needed a refresher course on dri­ving a standard-​transmission vehi­cle, since the rental cars will have stick-​shifts. So I offered him dri­ving lessons in my MINI last week. We tooled around in my neigh­bor­hood for a while before mov­ing to the Lloyd Noble Center park­ing lot. David’s biggest trou­ble was for­get­ting to shift from 1st gear to 2nd. I should note that he never, not once, ground my MINI’s gears, so points for that.

After Lloyd Noble we took a sup­per break. Our 1st choice for din­ner was closed by the time we got there, so we opted for pub grub at Blackbird Gastropub. While we were there I snapped this por­trait. David and his band have a num­ber of shows sched­uled before he departs for Europe, so be sure to check them out.
