Can’t sit still – must…hear…more…music!


SXSW bitches, get your funky ass out and shake it! Tonight’s line up for the free show is Echo and the Bunnymen, Blackalicious, Spoon, and Mr. Lif. You fucking kidding me? They fucking hit you with the hip-hop / rap shit and then force a little Indie in you and push you back a million years to some Echo. Who the hell can’t have fun in this town right now?

Every morning this week, I’ve been greeted by Lyle Lovett giving me the weather report. Not sure why he’s doing the weather on my favorite radio station, but there he is. (There’s a live feed so you can listen to it too. Highly recommend the morning shows where they have all kinds of bands playing live)

Then you go to work and read the million of people playing while you’re working like an ant. You want to scream because you can’t make all the shows, but you’re alive. And it’s good. And it’s good to live here.

Saturday is going to be the New Orleans Funk day, and I can’t wait. Gimme a little of that too, won’t you? Buckwheat Zydeco, Dirty Dozen Brass Band, Ivan Neville’s Dumpstahunk, The New Orleans Social Club (the Meters with a couple friends), and Allen Toussaint.

And this doesn’t mention the parties where the Pretenders are playing, or the millions of other talents just walking our streets and eating Tex Mex right now.

Home. I love my home.
