Off to a good start

Now, I might not be in Austin, where the weather is pleasant, the taco trucks plentiful, and the various showcases giving away free loot (the AAM showcase, where last year I walked away with two books, is giving away free Chucks this year), my vacation's been pretty solid for the first day.

Got Thing 2 off to Boys & Girls Club, got breakfast at Dunkin' Donuts (more for the coffee than the egg bagel, but I was starving), and then did another free form shift at KJHK. The setlist is below, and a lot like Sunday's.

I had a lot of fun, and my mom called! She was streaming it at the clinic where she works.

Afterward, I went down to the 'Kitty, and even though indierockgod was stuck on the road all day, Joe Noh was cool enough to show me the basics, and it was totally cool. I sold a few things, helped by the fact that they have essentially the same register as the bakery. This is going to be a fun extra thing to do, I think.

But that's not all! I got to interview Junior Marvin, of the Original Wailers (he played with Bob Marley), by phone this afternoon, and turned out a really nice produced audio interview to run on Wayward Blog tomorrow. Turned out better than half the stuff I did for As Heard From the Hill. There's also going to be a giveaway for Kevin Smith tickets, if you're inclined to go.

Now, it's just kicking back and having a beer while I listen to Tito Puente and wait to head down to the Replay for the Digital Leather show tonight. Three shows reviews in a week, and yet I've managed to find stuff to say every time. I think I might be getting the hang of all of this. I get that review written tonight, and I'm totally free tomorrow.

That's especially good, as the_lucky_nun took the day off work, and we're going to go watch the parade tomorrow, drink Guinness on the Replay back patio, and eat corned beef and cabbage for lunch. For a so-called "staycation" (and the next person to refer to it as such will be unable to say anything else afterward, as their words will be muffled by their own ass), this is pretty all right.
