Let’s go play in the streetlights, baby,
Let’s go out tonight
The weather’s warm,
and the radio’s blasting
the Rhythm of a Saturday night.
Those are the opening lyrics of a brand new song I’m working up with the band for the next record. It’s also a song we’ll be playing, this Saturday night, in fact, at Lambert’s on W. 2nd street.
It’s a big deal getting a show right in the thick of it like that, and Lambert’s is a venue I’m very excited to play. It’d be great to make a first impression and bring in some folks, so if you’ve been hoping for a chance to see us, this one’s not a school night! I’d certainly appreciate your attendance.
I’ll guarantee the band sounds good.

Saturday, August 2, 9:30 doors/show at 10 (there’s an opening act named Danny Rush)
In other news, a lot of my friends have been working on a record in honor of a close friend, Josh, who passed away over a year and half ago. He’s someone who affected a lot of people with love during his lifetime, and this record is a sort of legacy to that. It’s a collection of seven songs written by him, played and performed by a whole lot of great musicians. There’s been a little Indiegogo video generated in an effort to raise some funds. The proceeds of the project go to the SIMS Foundation. I cried when I watched the video, I hope you get a chance to check it out:
I hope the summer’s treating you right. My summer’s been pretty low key, a few shows here and there. I’ve been writing quite a bit, and I’m getting excited to go back into recording mode. I’ll let you know more about that as news unfolds.
For now, a couple shows coming up and then I’ll leave you with a song.
The song: This one’s a little bit about the summertime, though I wouldn’t call it a summertime song. I heard it on KUTX a few weeks ago and I hunted down the playlist to figure out what it was. It was recorded in 1991, but sounds like something that’d get put out today. It’s called Responsibility, by Steve Forbert.
Alright y’all. Your reading all the way through is much appreciated. May your life be happy and free.
