Busking with an iPad, part 2

A few weeks ago, BoingBoing hosted a picnic in the Golden Gate Parkhole. I had just bought a rechargeable amp, and was anxious to get some use out of it. I was still trying to figure out how to execute my “app music” in public settings. The live version of my “Take Off Your Riot Suit” remix ended up working its way in to this awesome clip video:

Geek-tastic.com recently posted these two recordings from my makeshift show. I’m obviously still searching for my groove with these live shows, but I think they are already getting better than these early songs in the park (my first live solo iPad show).

    Hi there. I'm the dude that posted those up for you. Thanks for the mention, but I should point out that my website is actually http://www.geek-tastic.com.

    The naming convention for my google account, which I used to login to youtube wouldn't allow me to include the hyphen. 🙁

    I posted these up with the intention of writing an article for the site sometime this week. Keep an eye out for it.

    The performances were really good. I really dig what you're making. Keep it up.
