It was an amazing trip back to SF to hear Friction Quartet premiere Juiced. I was halfway sick, extremely sleep-deprived, and probably borderline incoherent, but I didn't even care. The weather was beautiful, I saw many (but not all) of my favorite West Coasters, and Friction played the everloving crap out of Juiced. Particular props to violist Taija Warbelow, who pushed through some freaky shoulder problems that my piece was exacerbating (sorry!), but the whole group really delivered.
Here's a video:
The show actually got a great review in the SF Chronicle, too. It's nice when that happens.
