Well, Steanso's weekend was eventful indeed. I'd like to thank everyone who came out to Ruta Maya on Friday night to suffer through the savant garde musical stylings of Crack. Our gig wasn't necessarily "good" in the traditional sense of the word, but it seemed to be entertaining, if the reactions of the crowd were any indication. We really appreciated the crowd support, we had a great time, and Buttercup, Los Mescaleros (sp?), and F for Fake were all really good following Crack. I think F for Fake needs to be playing around town a little more often. They've got a good vibe going.
Saturday I had lunch with the Wilsons and Greg "Big" Johnson, who had motored into town from Houston to check out the Crack gig. Saturday night we celebrated Andy's birthday, having dinner with he and Rami (Sigmund was also in attendance). Afterward we met up with Hannah and Chris and Dan and Vicki and we all had a few drinks at Don's on South Congress in order to celebrate Dan's birthday as well (everyone wish Dan Hamre a happy birthday). After drinking a few rounds there, we retreated to the Wilson's pond for a nightcap before trundling off to bed.
Sunday I had a beaujolais nouveau tasting party at my house which was meant to take place before Mono E practice, but which ended up lasting through practice until about 9:30 p.m. (festivities started at 3:00). We had a decent practice and much wine-laden festivity was had. Hope everyone had fun!!!!
OK. Gotta run. Maybe more later.
