Hello, please ignore any extra copies of this comment. I can't get Facebook to open....so I clicked SEND hoping something would happen.....Rick and I are looking forward to Saturday night in the garden of EDEN!
Looking forward to it.
GOT OUR TIX FOR THE METROPOLIS OF EDEN, TEXAS!!!! CAN'T WAIT TO BE SLAYED!!!! HERE'S MY QUESTION....IT'S A BRAIN-BUSTER....A FEW YEARS AGO YOU PLAYED AT A PLACE AROUND THE CORNER OF THE OLD EMO'S LOCALE CALLED CARRIBEAN NIGHTS (MAYBE LIGHTS?) THIS WAS FOR A SXSW, SEEMS LIKE SOMEONE DROPPED OUT AND YOU HAPPENED TO BE IN TOWN TO FILL IN. (HUGE COUP FOR US) NOW FOR THE TEASER - THE POWER TO THE STAGE WENT OUT SHORTLY AFTER YOU BEGAN AND YOU PLAYED AN ACOUSTIC SONG IN THE POWERLESS MEANTIME. IT WAS A BEAUTIFUL SONG, DO YOU REMEMBER WHAT IT WAS? SEE YA THERE!!!!
Slaid, just wanted to say that for me, your music really is what country music has always held the promise to be. It's almost casually devastating, at its best. Songs like "Wishbone," "One Good Year," and "Horseshoe Lounge" have been a tremendous kind of musical therapy for me at many of the darkest times in my life. In your songs I hear a musical lineage that moves uneasily from Johnny Cash to Bob Dylan and George Jones. You really know, or at least imagine perfectly, what down and out looks like. Thank you for your songs.
But none of this is a question! When will you come to Arizona? You're on a very small list of people I want to see live.
