I’ve been busy making music.  

Woodshedding.  It comes to me in my life like I’m with child.  The symptoms can be  horrifyingly similar and I have to find a way to “birth” my music.  The process from itch to song is usually a few months. Now, I have brand new twins!  They’re in my phone and on my FB page.  I’m like one of those breastfeeding moms looking for attention.  Had to post my mutant children of a different frequency ASAP.  Go enjoy them.  There is no better vibration than analog human music.  Go get you some of that goodness.

Speaking of that,  thanks to my real followers!  Not one “like” but I go out and people know more about my life than me! 

Speaking of going out,

Had the great pleasure to stumble on a Rockstar Reunion.  Note: I was not counting myself as one of said rockstars, geez.  I can’t drop names because (Jeff Doyle), I might not remember all of them (Randy), then people get mad (Batman), and start thinking I’m all stuck up (Wayne Cain), (Val), (Carol), (Maria), (Gerardo), (that tall guy playing pool), (Byron…)

…and you know how sensitive I am.  Wouldn’t want anyone thinking that somehow the world would crumble if I thought I was stuck up.  Because that just isn’t so.  

I prefer the term “accomplished”.

That’s Carol on vocals.  

Monster voice.  Great stage presence!  I had to shake her hand.  She didn’t seem pleased.  I didn’t care.  Y’all know me.  FYI: MOST TO ALL lead singers hate me.  Most people in general hate me.  Well, not guys. Well, until they try to cross me…digression.

They know the competition even when I’m off of the stage game for a minute.  Recon…

So, yeah, I was an assistant Bouncer for a few while Batman took care of trouble in the parking lot.  I was carding the honeys, bust in’ a few heads inside.  Totally in my element, dude.  People saw.  PEOPLE SAW!  

Hard at work, President Trump.  Happy to be a cog in that wheel.

Speaking of being a slacker blogger…

I promise to work harder.  Promise.  Still need to tackle some projects on the Homefront that may keep me ocupado but I PROMISE to post more often.

Ms. Bliss will be at Boozehounds next Saturday.  She needs no formal introduction.

But then, neither do I.

Beauty AND brains.  This Florida native is already making waves in our big little Say Town.  Tune in to KENS 5 to check her out.

LISA FISCHER is a singer who really gets around. Her life is an endless round of planes, trains, and automobiles, rehearsals and fittings. On tour with the Rolling Stones, Sting, Chris Botti or Nine Inch Nails, her name may not be on the marquee, but she doesn’t care. She’s busy loving every minute of it.

Lisa rose to fame in 1992 when she won a Grammy® for Best Female R&B Vocal Performance for her first single, “How Can I Ease the Pain,” from her album So Intense beating out the “Queen of Soul” and in an unlikely tie with Patti LaBelle. The rest of her resumé is pretty impressive too: touring, recording, and music making with Tina Turner, Chaka Khan, Beyonce, Dionne Warwick, Dolly Parton, Bobby McFerrin, Alicia Keyes and many others. Along with many other top session and backup singers she’s featured in Morgan Neville’s Oscar and Grammy-winning 2013 documentary Twenty Feet from Stardom. In the wake of the …click here to read more.

Friday Night.  

Doors open at 7:00 with Buick6 opening.  The dynamic Ms. Williams begins at 9.

Lucinda Williams has been maneuvering down a path all her own for more than three decades now, emerging from Lake Charles, Louisiana, where her iconoclastic upbringing helped her forge the stunning Lucinda Williams (aka, the Rough Trade album). Somehow, that milestone 1988 set eventually disappeared from shelves, but was reissued 25 years later, as a deluxe edition that garnered unanimous acclaim — including Jim Farber of New York’s Daily News hailing it by calling it “A perfect work. There’s not a chord, lyric, beat or inflection that doesn’t pull at the heart or make it soar.” For much of the ‘90s, Lucinda moved around the country, turning out work that won immense respect inside the industry – as borne out by the Grammy afforded Mary-Chapin Carpenter’s interpretation of Williams’ “Passionate Kisses.” While her recorded output was sparse for a time, the work that did was invariably hailed for its indelible impressionism – like 1998’s Car Wheels on a Gravel Road, which notched her a second Grammy Award. Over the next decade, she crafted such classic sets as West (2007), and Blessed (2011), which the Los Angeles Times dubbed “a dynamic, human, album, one that’s easy to fall in love with.” Lucinda credits the injection of vitality and passion that emerged in part to Tom Overby, her partner in both life and music, who’s acted as both a sounding board and collaborator, contributing production ideas and offering encouragement to forge forward in directions that she might not have otherwise explored. That creative connection has grown increasingly electric over the years, as borne out by 2014’s Down Where the Spirit Meets the Bone, which won the 2015 Americana Music Association Award for Album of the Year. On February 5th, Lucinda Williams will release her 12th studio album, The Ghosts of Highway 20, which gives listeners a remarkably vivid look at how the highway has been a literal and figurative backdrop throughout her entire life.

Alamo City Rollergirls Las Pistoleras T-ShirtFrom the Alamo City Rollergirls “About” page:

Our league was founded in 2005 by Kat “Kitty Glitter” Feuerbackner and Cate “Nita Spankin” Compton. These two awesome ladies were on a mission to bring derby to San Antonio, Texas, where our league still calls home today. The founding duo was able to recruit skaters and volunteers and form a league that could be nationally recognized.


Tonight, the Alamo City Rollergirls are trying out a new flock of vicious vixens. No, you do not have to be a professional on skates or even own a pair. Go to the website to find out how you can support the team.
