Airport Internet

3 hour delay in Houston=first time I've had a chance to sit down and recap the last few weeks. too tired to actually elaborate on most of this, but I'll try to hit the high points.

Seems like I have been a busy bee since the last time I updated. Major events:
-Cocker Spaniels at Cherrywood Coffeehouse
-10/1-3 Matador at 21 in Vegas
-10/8 Miike Snow at the Belmont (Strike Team presents!)
-10/9 BMF Media Music Lounge at Austin City Limits
-10/15-17 De Luna Fest in Pensacola, Florida

+Cocker Spaniels AKA Sean Padilla
Seriously hilarious. And good music to boot! With catchy lyrics and and a killer rendition of Jimi Hendrix's "Star Spangled Banner", Sean puts on a good show.

So a couple weeks ago, I had the pleasure of seeing a friend play a show at a coffeeshop here in Austin. When I say friend, I mean that I have seen this person around town at various shows and became friends with him on facebook (yeah, yeah, i know). The first time I saw him was at Questlove's DJ set at Red 7. This dude was WAY into the show. He was way in the front and I'm pretty sure that he didn't stop moving the entire time that Questo was spinning. The next time I saw him was at Balmorhea/Mother Falcon at Mohawk. I think he was even more intense at this show than at Questlove! The week after the show I had to go to the post office to mail a few things and get my passport paperwork going. While I was there I saw the mystery show-man! He was mailing a bunch of what I thought were demos. After I dropped my mail off, I went outside and saw this crazy painted van driving away with mystery show-man at the wheel! On the back on the van, there was a website painted on the back, so I got in my car jotted down the address and went back to work. Later that night I looked up what was all about. Turns out the dude is a musician himself! Later that night I shared the website with a friend and she found him on facebook. I guess the rest is history.

Insider tip: If you buy this cat's album he will send you home made cookies...from scratch! True Story. He's currently on tour, so check out his website to see if he's making a stop near you.

+Matador at 21

Matt is so stinkin cute! I'm still disappointed that I didn't get any shots of my friend Erin dancing with Kim when she came out into the crowd. :(

Two Door Cinema Club
and Local Natives also played that night but it was HELLA packed upstairs and I like breathing so I listened from downstairs on the grass.

+De Luna Fest Pensacola, FL.
