I wish I had the TIME and the AWAKITUDE to write about it at length, but my show the other night at Antone’s (It wasn’t JUST ME, it was a line-up of a lot of great Austin bands from the 80′s) went SPECTACULARLY well, and has been described as “Sublime” and “Incredible”. Kris Nelson and I did full justice to Glass Eye and also played some songs with Daniel Johnston, my fans were thrilled, and I think many folks were impressed who had not heard me before. IT WAS GREAT!
My next appearance will be next weekend with the Dead Milkmen, they have asked me to come up and do a song with them at their SXSW show. Let me see if I can find the details in my email….the show is Saturday March 19th at the MWTX Party at the Eastside Drive-In at East 6th and San Marcos st. (MWTX means “Mess With Texas”)
I have not personally ever been to this venue, it might be a special one-time venue for this special time of year when every single club is booked with 8 bands a night. Then again, it might be a new venue. There are many other bands on the bill, but I, being old and out of it, have not heard of any of them. But them, I doubt they have heard of me!
So as you can see, my career is advancing apace. I spent the last three days in the studio working on my song in Brian Beattie’s musical IVY AND THE WICKER SUITCASE. So it FEEELS like I am back in the swing of things already, going at a full fever pitch! My cats are all mad at me because I am never home and have started peeing on everything I own. Right in front of me. On purpose.
