Rian really fucked up. He failed to book Steve for recording in September, so now if we want to work with him we have to wait until November or December. Bummer!! But I’m still excited to record with Steve. Wait’ll I tell Jodi Shapiro, she’s gonna flip.
Saw more old friends this weekend… Daniel Smith was at Electrical mixing the new Danielson Family record with Albini. I went over there with John on Saturday to hang out and hear a few of the tunes, it sounded really great. That’s when I bumped into Rian and we all had the discussion on when/if we should schedule recording at Electrical. I was so pissed at Rian; I spent the better part of the weekend just seething about it. Hopefully we’ll get it scheduled ASAP and I’ll be able to rest a little easier. Rian feels pretty bad about it too, he even apologized to John for pissing me off!!
Amy Domingues played with Threnody Ensemble at the Bottle last night, and spent the night with us afterward. John had to go to work today of course, but Amy wanted to go thrifting so we went to Roscoe & Damen. She was looking for a skirt and found a cool one at the Sally for only 65 cents!! So she felt okay about spending $5 at Shangri La for a coordinating top. (grin) We had lunch at Costello’s and she took off early this afternoon. They’re playing in St. Louis tonight, on their way to Seattle in a few days.
