W TX, aka Mario Land was a great time! I love Alpine and all the folks there. I want to give a shout out to Stewart Ramser for having us be a part of Viva Big Bend Music Festival. Also a shout out to May Leal and Dana Kasling for being good friends and such great supporters of my music :) Had fun w/ you ladies! I got to see so many awesome people and I met even more awesome people.
Please stay tuned for my upcoming shows around Austin and news on recording.
I haven't forgotten to blog, I've remembered but haven't followed through because usually when I think of something worthy enough to share I'm driving or playing or around people who will say "get off your phone!"
I'm in Oklahoma now and loving it as I always do. The folks here are true music fans and they like to party hard. Last night I went to see my friends, Uncle Lucius play at The Wormy Dog in Oklahoma City. After the show I saw a girl projectile vomit walking out of the venue and then people were walking in it not realizing they were getting her dinner & vodka on their cute little stilettos. I had never seen someone puke like that. I'm happy I'm not one who that has a domino effect on. And I'm happy I wear boots and look down very few seconds while I'm walking. I'm happy I don't throw up in public too. That can't be fun, but I guiltily (sp?) got a kick out of it. But then we got to go hang out in this airstream bus out back of the venue. It had a really clever name and I can't remember it! While everyone passed bottles of whiskey around I ate ice out of an ice bucket and tried a guys watermelon/peppermint flavored ecig. Very exciting.
I like Oklahoma, but one thing they don't have that TX has is continual feeder roads to the hwys. They cut off every so often so you have to turn around to go to the other side to find a way to get back to the original side up a mile and then your still on the wrong side and can't see the Cracker Barrel sign anymore.. It's not very practical. And maybe they.. Yeah, maybe they could do something about that for me. Also, on this trip it has become a theme to get a maple donut at every gas station.. They have them at EVERY gas station in OK. I'm gonna be 28 soon and I love them still after all these years. I don't know where I got my sweet tooth from. Mama? Dad?
So, Oklahoma- please fix your feeder rds, keep up with the maple donuts, keep loving us Texans who come to play music for you and please keep drinking your Mustang beer and throwing up while waking. It's quite impressive, a skill I admire from a distance. Oklahomans are endearing, I sure have a soft spot for y'all.
Love you OK! Come to The Deli (in Norman) Monday eve July 22 to see me render my heart on stage before The Damn Quails!
