All of My Friends Were There

And not just my friends but their best friends too.

Hackmuth should be proud of the night of music and films at DCAC that he conjured up. The Foreign Press rocked their set, "Dutch Flowers" and all. We got to play all four of our songs. Gab finally got to play through a real bass amp and remarked how much easier it is to play when the volume is up. Amen to that! Speaking of volume- my ears are still ringing from The Plums, who got some serious space truckin' grooves going. And Portions Toll had this weird synchronicity with the seventies commercials that were showing behind them; when John sang a lyric about being upset there was a man shouting in rage onscreen.

It's so great to be part of a creative scene where we make the shows that we want happen. Thanks to everyone who came out and supported us.

A Night Under the Stars

We had a great time under the night sky at the Montgomery College Planetarium this Saturday. Amber Dunleavy rocked the theremin, Gabriela debuted on bass, David played his "Persian glass drums" and I fiddled with guitar fx while Dr. Williams (who referred to us as "Starhorse Seacase") did his red and green laser show. Much thanks to all who came out, it was great fun sharing the stars with you.

We go right back onstage (minus Amber, who can't make the show) at DCAC this Saturday> here's the flyer

Some Thoughts About New Mexico

I spent a week in New Mexico and came away with the following observations.
-Santa Fe has a lot of elderly, rich white people
-People go to casinos in the morning. THE MORNING
-If you find yourself in Albuquerque, leave immediately
-Cowboy hats aren't fashion accessories
-70 MPH is slow
-You can build a house out of tires and live off the grid
-Some snaps from our hike in Frijoles Canyon are here

Field Report on Roger "Syd" Barrett's Fingers

From a list:
I AM in contact with a member of his family AND a neighbor, that is all I will say about that. He has not lost any fingers or "parts of fingers" and walks and rides his bike regularly. Someone that is close to him once told me "That boy can walk"! He paints but he likes "wood working" now, making sculptures and such. The only reason I speak up is because I understand some may be concerned about this (his health) and I wanted to let you know that so far he is doing good and has all his fingers and what not.
