Twenty-year-old Lydia Loveless opened the show. She has a unique voice,and is a powerful singer. Maggie Bjorlkund, steel player from Denmark, is next. Cello, upright, steel . . . very beautiful, strange music with wispy vocals.
The supermoon was something else.
I couldn't get in to see Yoko Ono; I would have liked to have seen her.
Most people are leaving, but we are staying.
I am so lucky to have almost two weeks here. Because I love Austin.
Lots of life-lovers and proud lesbians, handsome men shakin' it. The first band we saw was Poor Richard. All about the fun and the fun. Gals, mostly.
Ran into some friends there and called it a night when it got dark. Can't argue with darkness. Got groceries and went back to the room.
I have four days off until my tour starts here in Austin.
It's important to come here to meet the music warriors who are keeping live music alive.
It's to make musical and spiritual connections with new friends and old friends. It's a lot like the old punk scene–all about fighting for something good and love and celebration.
So it was a good one.
Keep Austin weird.
