Set list for December 6, 2008

Set list for the Viper’s 20 minute set between two longer sets by the Paint Branch Ramblers at the Home Grown Coffee House in Accokeek, Maryland. For more details on the evening and for the Ramblers set lists,  see here.

This was my last performance as The Viper before I leave the Washington, D.C. area — where I’ve lived for the last 5 years — to return to the Midwest, and specifically to move to Milwaukee. So it was fitting that I played at the venue where I first played in the area 5 years ago and which is one of my favorite places to play: great acoustics, a great audience, and a great staff of volunteers from the neighborhood that always make the night a lot of fun. This is one of the things I’ll miss the most about the area.


  • Viper’s Blue Yodel no. 6.02 x 10 to the 23rd (a Mole of the Blues)
  • Capital
  • Think about your Troubles (Harry Nilsson)
  • And Sometimes Dmytryk
  • Time of the Leaving / I Will Always Love You (Dolly Parton, sung for the Paint Branch Ramblers)
  • My Seafaring Lassie

I hope to put up sound files over the next couple of days from the hi-tech but lo-fi recording I made at the show (essentially, a mic set up to capture the room sound that ran through my TonePort UX2 interface and into Audacity on my computer, which gives me a chance to equalize the sound a little bit on the other end).

For now, this snippet of me yodeling over the “First Round Polka” with the Paint Branch Ramblers will have to do.

  1. You didn’t sing “I Will Always Love You” for the lovesick bluesboy after he’d taken his last Valium?

    Me, I’m just gonna think about the bubbles.

  2. MR. JERVING! How delightful it is to hear your yodeling again. I was just thinking about ukuleles the other day and some poking around on the Internet led me here!
