Good times ahead, but no down time

Dashing in for a quick post. Got hit with a work bomb on Monday on the "day job" (big pile of work/very short and firm deadline) so I've barely been up for air or news or goofing off or anything of the sort. Missed Fastball at Waterloo Records and the Brewster McCracken house party at the home of Tim & Karrie League, the owners of the Alamo Drafthouses with Jon Dee Graham playing because I was mentally wasted from two too-long days and over an hour of bumper-to-bumper and sirens tonight (sigh}.

Friday we will be at The Old Settler's Music Festival (should be comped in for the day), and they have a great lineup as always. It's a great little Bluegrass/Americana event on a pretty piece of land by Onion Creek and a pretty good vibe.

This weekend the town (especially So. Congress) will be in party mode and full of classic cars cruising the streets for the Lone Star Roundup. Lots of great live music in the rockabilly vein too, or just a good time to park yourself at Jo's Coffee and watch the "parade" go by.

For people-watching with a twist, you might want to consider the Bare Buns 5K Run in McDade. Yep, it's just what it sounds like, and probably best experienced if you are game for getting closer to nature yourself.

We are going to keep our clothes on and go to see Gary Louris and Mark Olson (of the Jayhawks). They have an in-store at Waterloo Records and a show at Antone's, both on Saturday. Should be wonderful.

On Sunday, we will rest.
