There is absolutely nothing clever about that title. Moving on.

Feed Us a Fetus has played two more shows since the very first one at the Revolution in Downtown Bryan. We played at the Stafford, a blooming venue that’s also located in Bryan’s sweet spot, with our friend Marshall of Warbler. Directly before us was a band dubbed Hollywood Black representing Houston. They reminded me of a Tapes ‘n Tapes except not as soft and more prone to trip over each other on stage and turn it into a rock n’ roll move. Smooth.

My parents came to this one. They drove all the way out from Dallas and then left promptly after. One of these days they will turn into better night owls… I hear you need less sleep as you get older. I hear. But it was understandable. Jacob also came and it was so good to see his face while I was playing. There ain’t nothing like fam fam to make you not give a damn damn!

Next stop:  Austin for Warbler’s CD release shindig.  It was hot.  Like sweaty in places-you-weren’t-fully-aware-there-were-pores hot.  And also hot as in the hot in PHAT.

Clockwise from top left: 1) Aww yeah, let’s get it started!  2) Carlos’ sweaty ringlet is the source of his power  3) Seth!  You lose your glasses when you are rockin’ out too just hard enough  4) Sax-o-ma-phoooone!  My bandmates are so multi-talented.

1) Pretty carrie… she generally shows me up in the wardrobe department.  I think I was going for insane hobo?  (I mean I have drawn-on cat whiskers…)   2) Yesssssss.

Clockwise from top left: 1) Hey those people are dancing!  Hey I know those people!  2) Sean is either giving signals to somebody, inventing a new dance move, is pointing someone in the direction of the bathroom  3)  See what I mean about multi-talented?  4) I play with my fingers AND my hair

Ahh, friends.   Such a range of expressions!  1) The camera mistress and her mistress.  2)  Brent and Blaine are mugging so hard they broke my camera  3) Ty, Joel, and Ian.  They said they liked the music… but I know they love each other even more.

Circlebirds played a kickass show as well, for the part that I saw.  They will be on tour soon across the lower eastern portion of America, so put on your dancing shoes and go see them!  Unfortunately before their Austin set was over I was whisked away by my pals and at several distinct points afterward, we got extra silly, had a jam session where I actually got the swing of a drumset (I attribute it to the not-water I was drinking) and we ate samosas at 3 am.  Good, good, good night.  I am missing some photos with some people … this will be a reminder to be more diligent in that department!
