Howdy Kittens and Cats,
Well, this is it we’re done with the 1900s. We’re doing what we always do on New Year’s Eve — working. Well, if you call what I do work.
Last night was Nashville and it was really fun. Hank III was great and a good time was had by all. I think we had eighteen tickets pre-sold. Then, the walk-ups sold the place out. Nashville has become a really great city for us. It was not always easy there, but it sure is good now. Nashville can be a hard town. Thanks for the gig.
OK. Tonight it’s Washington, DC. The 9:30 Club. Seems like this little four day trip should be called the historical tour, because, all of the places we’re playing on this trip are places of note in the world of Honky-tonk and Rock-and-roll. The 9:30 has been a mainstay for rock and punk and alternative for I think twenty years or something. Everyone has played at the old 9:30. The new one they built is one of the best of the first-rate music venues in America.
Anyway, here’s the list of clubs on this little four day tour.
Caravan of Dreams — Ft. Worth
Cain’s Ballroom –Tulsa
Exit Inn — Nashville
9:30 Club — Washington, DC
And now, the daily buys and sells.
Buy — The next big music of the next two thousand years — rock-a-billy.
Sell — Music that’s made with computers.
Buy — Biller and Wakefield (guitar and steel guitar music from Austin, somewhat reminiscent of Jimmy Bryant and Speedy West)
Thanks again for the 1900s and we’ll see you next millennium.
