we’re leaving for a long california weekend tomorrow and i’m finally getting my packing done. it’s hard to cram merch, cds, pedals, and a guitar in a carry-on suitcase. this calls for some extreme measures. i might have to “check” some baggage. the horror. anyways, drummer brian and i are flying out of nashville and hooking up with jerry in el lay. our pals duke and sylvia have hooked us up big time with some cool shows and lodging. a guy i’ve never met, stan, will be our bass player for the shows and none of it could be done if our boy diaz wasn’t providing all the gear. cheers all around. it’s all out of our hands and i couldn’t be happier. nothing’s getting in the way of my california vacation.
