It was more than great to have Dave Alvin back at the Fur Peace Station. He brought the Guilty Ones with him this time and nowhere was their guilt more positively displayed. Dave was joined by Lisa Pankratz on drums, Brad Fordham on bass, and Chris Miller on guitar. Dave and the gang put on a master class about well… how it’s done. From delicate sonic filigrees to balls to the wall explosions, this was a show for me and everyone who was at the Station last Saturday to remember. Thanks team… hope to intersect with you all again down the road!
Sunday morning Mr. John Hurlbut and I showed up at the Beatrice Love Kitchen ready to pick and sing some tunes for the guests who stayed overnight at the Ranch. I kicked the morning gig off with a new tune for me written by my friend Frank Goodman called Where Have My Old Friends Gone? It just reminded me, ‘Life is like a roll of toilet paper, the closer to the end you get, the faster it goes,’ Putting that thought aside I was about to note Hurl’s and my morning set list and then I realized I didn’t write it done and the memory of it is gone like a summer breeze.
No matter… it was a good time.
