Saying goodbye to an old friend.
So I've decided after much deliberation that I'm finally going to retire my old guitar. I'll be playing my final show with it on May 17th in Riverside, CA.
It's in dire need of repair that I'm not able to give it, and it's starting to sound really distorted and warped. It's difficult to admit how attached I am to an inanimate object but it's been a great friend to me. A source of comfort, artistic expression, and a way to block out all the noise going on around me.
It's been through over 40 states, touched all 4 corners of the u.s., and played over 200 shows in the past 2 years. Been through every climate imaginable, from 115 degree weather to well into the negatives.. that actually being the main reason why it's falling apart.
So if you're in the area feel free to come to the show (daytime):
Andrew Jackson Jihad
Miguel from Oakland
@ back to the grind
3575 university ave
p.s. I'm still going to continue with shows, I've received a new guitar already.
