Howdy Friends! I’m still in Austin, waiting for my 8:30pm flight to take me home and even though I’ve check out of the hotel, I’m hanging out on the second floor with cozy chairs, free wifi, and free hot teat. I’m pretty happy to hang here until I need to get going. I also can’t wait to get back to real life. I’m not sure Kristen agrees with me but I’ve been missing my gym classes. Walking and standing all day might make me sore, but it’s not the good kind of sore from a good workout. Anyways, we got some great acts coming through this week. I wish I was back in town in time to catch Neulore at the Casbah tonight. Some SXSW acts are coming through this week like The Ting Tings, Rubblebucket, Jeff The Brotherhood, Broncho, and Black Rivers so you should go catch one of them.

Hello from a very rain soaked San Diego. I’m really enjoying this grey weather as long as I’m not actually in it. What is it about the rain that brings out the very worst driver in everyone? Also, I managed to get out to the barn just in time for a huge thunderstorm to roll in. Thankfully I was able to hide under a horse shelter until it passed and managed to avoid drowned rat status, although my hair is starting to reach Hermione Granger status.

I was out a few times last week for shows and had a lovely time. This weekend was spent visiting with friends from out of town at Disneyland and California Adventure. I even dressed up for Dapper Day yesterday. This week is full of more adventures while we count down the time to SXSW.

Well, I actually made it out to a show last week. I know, shocker. I went to the Casbah to catch the first show from new band Wars and see The Young Wild for the first time. I’m glad I made it out but it just reminds me how I’m not in show shape anymore. Yes, it’s a specific kind of “shape” you have to be in. Or I’m just getting older. One of the two.

Anyways, a few sold out shows this week and lots of options on Wednesday. Choose wisely.

I’ve know for some time that getting older means things change. Long gone are the days of multiple shows a week and late night chats at coffee shops. Instead its been replaced with leaving four songs in to a band you’re checking out because you can no longer take the combination of the crowd, the vaping inside, and the amount of back pain you have from standing so long. It’s coming to accept that you have really high standards for seeing a band live and they have to grab you by the throat and get you emotionally invested enough to stay. And music should do that for everyone.
