Rich Man's War

This is one hell of a great song and video! "Rich Man's War"

Just saw this band tonight at Central Market, which is essentially a grocery store, although it's a really nice one. Yes, welcome to Austin Texas, where you'll see great bands even at the grocery store. They are called Hundred Year Flood (link goes to their MySpace), and they say voting on this video took it up to #7 on NeilYoung.com on his collection of protest videos.

They were opening for The Texas Sapphires, who won the Austin Music Award last year for Best New Band. They are a really cool rockabilly "real" country band with a punk background, and you can forget that Nashvegas crap. This is good stuff. Give a listen here.

That was a really cool video, touching, as well. Now that song will be playing in my head all day.

Oh, Blueberry, I have Cedar Fever. Think some good thoughts my way, please.

OB: you poor thing! So far I have escaped that allergy, but it's probably coming any year now!
