I think this was at the Mermaid Lounge in New Orleans. Note: wedding ring, missing B string, pickup in lead position (I almost never do that anymore), Schaefer beer, open Lady Samsonite gear case, gorgeous sparkly Silvertone amp fabric (Alec, take care of that thing for me…I might need it back!) I also wonder what happened to that shirt.
I worked in a law office in New Orleans right before Hurricane Katrina. It was a ridiculous job. I regularly met my friend Alison for ten-cent martinis at Bacco or whatever Brennan’s restaurant was doing that deal and went back to work in a hot little room with a bunch of paralegals who were terrified of…something. There was no real work to do so I was usually done by ten a.m. I wore a suit every day so I could pretend my life and job had meaning besides billing hours to the clients (who were sure to lose). Here’s a concerned little note written by the one paralegal who was actually nice to me.
My screen printing was always low- or no-budget (nice way of saying half-assed) but I had a lot of fun with it.
I went to the theater and saw this terrific program of seven ten-minute plays at the Red Room Theater (above KGB Bar on East 4th Street, in the East Village of New York City).
All the plays (which were written just for this program) were at least good, all the actors were very good to excellent, and I’d be remiss if I didn’t mention I *really* enjoyed J.B. Roté‘s performance in the evening’s finale, “Crawl For It” (I also have to compliment the writer Joshua Conkel and co-star Nick Faust). I’m going to see it again next weekend; I liked it that much.
