Looking into the future, like, next week

Well, Texas is on the horizon. I'm not even out of Virginia yet, but I can't stop thinking about next week. We're trying a couple last ditch efforts to land a couple Austin gigs -- maybe a house party, or a coffeeshop, or Rudimaya, or anything really. We also submitted for this John Lennon Songwriting contest which gives an acoustic slot on March 13. Keep your fingers firmly crossed.

Anyhow, our show in Denton is getting a little buzz, despite the fact that we lost our headliner. It was named a must-see by MassCulture. This also points out the fact that we're not playing NXSW but then again, I didn't know about it, so there.

And we got more love from Ryan's Smashing Life, a big time supporter of this group, for best albums of 2006. Check it here.

Boston homeboys The Cassavettes dropped their "It's Gonna Change" album just before the end of the year - and boy did they do it right. The album is a mixing bowl of rock and folk/Americana stage music. The band can play it loud, but they are more than capable of filling the room with blues. Not bad for a bunch of guys from Boston... I've spoken to a couple of the guys briefly - they also happen to be pretty cool too. Here is the "Shine A Light" - single. When you listen, you'll know why I made this a must have release for 2006/2007.

Pretty cool, eh? The Virginia trip is winding down -- I just got my teeth cleaned and then promptly ate at Chik-Fil-A. Today, we may go fishing but it's pretty windy. Last night, TD and I went out to dinner with her step-sister and her new husband and daughter. It was pretty cool -- they're nice folks and the daughter was adorable. Plus, I had no trouble navigating the way there, basically, as Virginia's main roads are more akin to my native Texas, rather than the confusing web of roads in Boston. Not too bad.

oh. my. god.

(i know that's probably a very bad thing to say considering the beliefs of the company) Chik-fil-a is SO good. i wish they would move north. along with steak-n-shake.

really, scott, you like SNS? who knew?

anyhow, i like chick fil a. it tastes good to me in the way that something you sort of like does. i appreciate you not getting in my grill over it, too. nice usage of restraint in what could have been an ugly food war.

i agree glenn. i was surprised that a food war involving LJS did not erupt, as i was expecting. but, i'm not gonna stop scott from eating there, in the same manner that he feels about chik-fil-a.
