Robbie Schaefer at Jammin’ Java


Robbie was planning on taping his two shows this past weekend. Unfortunately, Jammin’ Java was closed due to a power outage on Saturday, and he did not record the Sunday show. Since he wasn’t, he was taking requests during the show (first time I’ve heard “Straight And Narrow” live), and extended the encore for them (“If you guys want to leave, you can”). Two new songs, “Clear And Present Danger” (about how you never really know your partner), and “Backbeat” (not sure of the title), he said it was an old one he’d never played in public before. The first two songs were because of the hurricane (“Number Six Driver” because of the coffee reference: “I never knew I’d miss Starbucks so much”).
