A guy I work with has convinced me to play @ a  small, free show he's putting on in L.A. at the end of April.

This will be my first time playing a gig live.  All old acoustic/country blues stuff.  Mance Lipscomb, Lightnin' Hopkins, Sonny & Brownie, etc.

I got a bassist and a laptop dobro player who wanna play with me.

And I planned to sing, until I recorded myself.  

Anyone know a blues singer?

Ack!

Easy solution, just fake diarrhea before you open your mouth.

 Solid advice! (pun intended)

 It'll let you know in two months. The gig's at the end of April.  

Could stll use a singer (or a drummer, for that matter) if anyone knows one.

I don't know why I thought you had it already... I was wishing I was Mark Lanegan or something. Or knew him and could talk him into it. Good luck!

(You can always just have the vocal mic mixed real low in the mix... happens all the time!)

 Wish I could sport you a flight.  But since I aint getting paid for the gig, the budget's a bit tight.
