Sometimes it's hard, but you gotta understand . . .
Mood:  rushed
Topic: Gigs

I love you baby, but you gotta understand

when the lord made me, he made a ramblin' man . . .

                                 -Hank Williams 

 First and foremost, new pictures are up in the gallery! Go forth and see the Owl Howl . . . these are some of my favourite shots of the band ever.

                                                     ~~~

     Secondly, the aforementioned "sitting in with the Pickled Hicks playin' some Hank" show was awesome; and not just the songs I played.  The Hicks had Charlie on pedal steel, Brendan on bass, and Pat on drums (I'm not sure of their last names, but they're all amazing; you can see a picture of Pat playing drums with Erin Ross in our Owl Howl Gallery).

     They were awesome, playing a whole load of songs, including Bob Wills, Neko Case, a great version of Sally Goodin', and some of their incredible "Pickled Hicks Songs": Hunt that Rabbit, the Mad Trapper, and that one about that giant bear that I can never remember the name of, but it's sweet.

    I got up and played Mind Your Own Business, Ramblin' Man, Rollin' in My Sweet Baby's Arms, and Bucket's Got a Hole.

   Rambin' Man, most especially, was EPIC. I mean, EPIC.

   My favourite part of the night:

  James: Oh, you want me to play one more? Okay, something simple . . . Folsom Prison?

 Shane:  We don't play that song.

 James: What?

 Shane: Who's it by?

James: (oblivious) Johhny Cash?

Shane: Never heard of him.

James: (laughing) Okay then, Bucket's Got a Hole in D.

 

                                     ~~~

 

Lastly, if it seems slow in Dangeria right now, it ain't. We get the keys to the new permanent La Glorieta, our beloved rehearsal space/studio/tea-drinking venue, tomorrow; we've been a-packin' and a-packin;, and tomorrow we'll be a-paintin' and a-paintin'; expect to see lots more of us once our physical transition is done!
