Slip Inside This House

Worked a couple of interesting shows over the weekend. Friday was Butthole Surfers at Warsaw. Good show, I had never seen them. Saturday was J Mascis and friends at the Go Yoga Center. They played songs celebrating Amma, an Indian religious figure. It was quite good, I hope they perform together again.

Look What the Wind Just Blew In

Just got off the phone with an old friend of mine, Tom Schepke. We went to college together in the '70's in San Antonio. Tom is a radio DJ and has been since we got out of school. He worked for many years at the infamous KISS FM in San Antonio with Joe Anthony. I think these guys were responsible for breaking many a metal band in America and turned SA into the metal capitol of Texas. Tom works for a classic rock staion now that has Budgie in it's rotation. Got to be the only radio station in the world that can make that claim.

Tom is a great guy and it was good to talk to him again. We saw some great shows together and had lots of fun. Tune into KZEP if you are in San Antonio and give him a listen. Maybe he'll play some BeBop Deluxe.

Tomas and I spent yesterday looking for vintage amps he could take back to the Czech Republic. We found a '91 Ampeg SVT Classic, pretty cool and a good price. 

Santa I want a 1971 SVT for Christmas!

Mr. Soul

Boris tour is over, it was great. The band sounds better than ever. They will be doing a festival show in Atlanta in February, can't wait! Have to look for some more work now. Oh well. 

Jaime made me a farewell waffle, uh, yum!

Wango Tango

Show last night at Williamsburg Music Hall, everything went well. It's a great venue. Takeshi, Michio and I ate at Egg, near the the club. Steven from Harvey Milk works there and it's some good southern food, grits, biscuits, fried chicken and all that. Three more shows, time flies.

On Time

Last few days we've done shows in Minneapolis, Chicago and Detroit. All good. Ran into Tony from the old Detroit band Trash Brats at the Magic Stick. Trash Brats played Continental in NYC back when I worked there. Great band and it was good to see him again. Here's some more pictures.
