the last few days
Thanks to our fans who came out to the Austin Emo's show and Dallas Cavern show, in particular the guys in front at the Cavern show who were losing their minds during our set, even for the slow stuff.
Pretty amazing scene on the street outside the Cavern after the show -- felt like being in a Snoop video. Why do I take pics of sweet tea signs and miss the short shorts? I'll make up for it in the next blog.
Finally got to play a set with Experimental Aircraft, who I've seen 3 or 4 times in Austin over the years, but never with Rachel playing the Omnichord -- sick omnichord work. Kids: listen to this band and rip off their tones and you will do well.
Dug Red Monroe in Dallas as well. Amazing this band is from Dallas.
We've logged about 50 hours so far in the van on this tour. Here's what we're learning from commercial radio:
* Diamonds and gold are great substitutes for affection and sex
* Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd and Boston are the hottest rock acts in the states right now
* There are more commercials on the radio than ever, I guess because stations don't get as much revenue from each ad. Damn internet.
