I think it was on Friday that I heard from somewhere or somebody that Holding On To Sound had announced their imminent breakup as a band via the Interwebz. While I wasn't the biggest fan of the band, their lack of presence in the Scene will definitely be missed. I've seen them play some magical shows before, fascinating factions of Friends, Family, and Fans in venues both small and large, and it's not gonna be the same without them around, that's for sure. If there is a plus side to all this, it's that I hope they all remain close and keep on making music in whatever future endeavors they may peruse. Farewell show perhaps??
First Friday was beyond fucking packed this month, and with the narrowing of Charleston Blvd. down to 1 lane before the 15 underpass, it seriously took me 2 hours to find a parking spot, and by the time I did, I got to Cowtown Guitars just in time to see Crazy Chief play their last song. Booooooo. There was no food or booze left in the place, so my girl and I went off in search of Food and Art and Adventure. It was great seeing all of you for the short time that I did while I was there... heh heh
I think it was on Sat. that somebody told me that Squid Hat Records had just signed Guilty By Association to their label, and after I stopped laughing for about 15 minutes straight I was pretty happy for the guys. Congratulations GBA! I know you guys will make the most out of this wonderful opportunity you've been given. Do Vegas Proud! :-)
I didn't even make it to the Skatalites on Sat. I suck. I know. And on Sun. I had 3, count them, 3 band practices set up, one right after another, starting at high noon of course, and thankfully one band took the chickenshit route out of it and cancelled practice hours before it was scheduled to begin (was the celebration to being signed to Squid Hat too much to bear the next day? LOL), so I caught a break, kind of, but man, am I sore and fucking tired today. And I gotta do it again tonight. And again tomorrow night for this gig @ the Bunkhouse that I know nothing about. Yeah. Being a Drummer is fantastic... heh heh heh Everything is updated, I think. I don't really care. I'm going back to bed.
