I seem to be getting sick. Flu-ish sick. Coughs. Pains. Massive headache. General blah blah blah feeling. I'm trying to figure out how I got sick. I think it was Maria Taylor's
fault. We went to see her Saturday night in Denton and after talking to her for a few minutes she told me she had the flu. Lovely. Still she put on an amazing set. I think it was probably worth getting sick to see her play.
Anyway - it's been a long and hectic week. Shows pretty much every day for the last 6 - and we've ended up with some spectacular recordings. For those (few) of you who don't read Gorilla Vs Bear
- check out this post
on Grizzly Bear. It was a team effort at Good Records last week, with yours truly on soundboard audio and various other Dallas bloggers manning the video cameras. Chris will be playing the entire set on his Sirius radio show tomorrow night after which you will be able to download the whole thing here. Stay tuned.
Also managed to tape the Grizzly Bear electric from Club DaDa later that night - along with fun sets from Peter and the Wolf and the Papercuts. Also taped Matt Wertz, Maria Taylor and the Lemurs over the last few days. Probably the highlight of the week was seeing Eric Clapton from 4th row - but sorry kids, he doesn't allow taping.
But back, er on, to the current post. Blue October
- Houston's home town rock stars. Had the pleasure of getting to see them play at their latest record release party, in support of Foiled
. They played at Soundwaves
record store - which is actually a pretty large store - and it was PACKED - must have been at least 300 people there. Even though the guys played an acoustic set, it was still one of the most straight-forward rock sets I've seen in a long time.
