Having been to several of your gigs in the UK, and then to Austin for the live music, I have told friends to go to Austin too. At one concert, you said to me that the places we had been were too commercial now, and I should ask you for the best places for live music, before going again to Austin. Now some friends are heading to Austin next Saturday, for a few days, and I would like to tell them where to go for the best live music. Please would you give me the names of where I should tell them to go. I will be very grateful - and promise to be at your next UK gig.........when is it?

Hi Elaine - Thanks for coming out to the shows. We probably wont be back in the UK till after I release some new music. Could be a while . . . Tell your friends to avoid 6th street at all costs. Some of my favorites in town are The Cactus Cafe, the Saxon Pub, the Continental Club, C-Boy's, the White Horse, the Broken Spoke, Antones, El Mercado, Sam's Town Point, and Donn's Depot (Mondays). That should keep them busy! -Slaid
Love your music Slaid! In your song “New Years Day”, it sounds like you sing the “aisles of New Carlisle” rather than “up at Carlisle”. Just wondering, as we just spent some time in New Carlisle, a pretty town we passed through on a great driving tour of the Gaspe Peninsula, Quebec. To make this more intriguing, my friend Kate Kerr grew up there - now living in western Canada not the Kerrville in your song!
Wondering if you ever perform in Montana. There are some great venues around the state that would love to have you.
I am only a fan,but would suggest a few venues. The Lewis And Clark Brewery in Helena. The Top Hat lounge in Missoula. The Wilma Theater in Missoula.. The O'Shaughnessy Center in Whitefish. Kettlehouse Ampitheater in Bonner. Map Brewing in Bozeman.
Please consider coming North to the beautiful and friendly confines of Montana.
