Ooops! A whole month has gone by without a new post. There’s no way to catch you up on everything, but I’ve been writing some articles for the local weekly the Mountain Xpress & playing hot jazz with the Red Hot Sugar Babies & learning to ride my bicycle around town in 90 degree weather so I’m reducing my carbon footprint on this earth while getting myself back in shape from the west coast tour. Whew! Also, I’m learning how to stretch those dollars farther, find the river to cool off from the heat, & barter what I can for what I need. The faster the crazy spins, the more I long for the simple.
I had a great conversation with Margo Timmins of the Cowboy Junkies last week and look forward to one this week with Nat “King” Cole’s brother Freddy Cole for the Mountain Xpress. I’m excited to catch both of these musicians live when they play Asheville in the next few weeks.
Friday night after a steamy show with the Red Hot Sugar Babies at Roger’s Park in Tryon I returned to Asheville to catch a little something special at LaRue’s Backdoor that made me dance with joy. Check out this video that captures the sound of the band even if it fails you give you the visual of the whole Bill Murray Experience. They’re hot!
