Tour cleanup

So, some guy wrote to me to tell me that he USED to like SOME of my music, but it’s no good now because he noticed that I’d "spoken out" against capital punishment in this blog.  I thought I was just discussing a personal view, isn’t that what blogs are for?  And what does that have to do with the MUSIC?  Whatever!  I spent like an hour writing the lunkhead a reply to try to prove exactly where he was going wrong, but why did I even bother?  Bigots like that are a dime a dozen, I shouldn’t even waste my time.  His argument was SO twisted, on so many levels I hardly knew where to begin.  I sure hope he doesn’t write me back, I don’t need "fan mail" like that!!  If he wants to be a dick about it, I’ll just block his address.

Great to be home

…I have an even more embarrassing/funny ending to the previous L.A. story, but it’ll have to wait.  I just got home about four hours ago and I gotta go to bed ASAP.  The tour’s not over yet, we still have a show on Friday at Schuba’s!!  I have to go with Ryan to return the rent-a-van in the morning.  Dude… if I sound a little disjointed right now, it’s because I’ve only had like 4 or 5 hours sleep every night (if that) for the past two weeks.

SLC Weekly preview

A show preview by Bill Frost which appeared in the April 25, 2002 issue (Vol. 18 No. 48) of the Salt Lake City Weekly

Edith Frost
Friday, April 26 @ Kilby Court, 741 S. 330 West, 320-9887, 8:30 p.m.

First off, no relation, OK? Edith Frost is a Texan via New York City and now Chicago, where she recorded Wonder Wonder (Drag City), a beautifully not-quite-country album that combines cowgirl longing and urban lust with stunning results — think Patsy Cline sharing a Lucky Strike with Liz Phair, among others. "I like it when people compare me to freaks like Syd Barrett," she says. "There are a lot of elements I want to put into my music that can’t be summed up by saying ‘country.’"

My band: Jim Becker (guitar, violin, keyboards), Ryan Hembrey (electric bass, backing vocals), Adam Vida (drums)
