In a strangely serendipitous turn of events I'm going to be playing two different
birthday related events back-to-back in the San Marcos / Austin area on Tuesday
and Wednesday. Neither of them are for my birthday, but I'm excited to be playing
them anyway. Check out some details below.
Kent Finlay Celebrates 29th B'Day (again) - Tuesday Feb. 11 at 8pm
If you follow the stream of singer/songwriters that make their way from Texas out
into the wild oceans of the rest of the world, you'll find some of the most
well-known tributaries lead back to Kent Finlay. There's a good reason that
folks like George Str
ait, Bruce Robison, Randy Rogers and
Todd Snider looked to Kent to find guidance and songwriting inspiration
- he's a damn good writer and super nice guy. (I guess Todd would say he's
an "alright guy."
) And you'll find nowhere else to witness the
impact Kent has had on the songwriting community than at his annual, two-night birthday
parties at Cheatham Street Warehouse in San Marcos
. I'll be
playing the 2nd night this year, but if you're of the mind, I'd say go to
both! Check out the full calendar
for more details,
then come wish Kent a happy 29th!
KDRP Texas Radio Live: Special Birthday Edition - Wednesday, Feb. 12th at
Continuing on in this birthday run I'll be playing KDRP's Texas Radio Live
at Guero's Taco Bar
on South Congress
in Austin. We'll be celebrating the birthday of DJ, David Arnsberger
who curates the show. I'm super excited to have Rich Brotherton at
my side playing along to songs he produced from my first album and the one that's
on the way. We'll be opening up the night and Shelly King & The Young Ancients
will close it out. So far the plan is to do the show outside
under the oak trees, but it may move inside if the weather don't cooperate.
Come on down to help David celebrate another run around the sun!
Well, I guess that's it for the next few days for me. Hope to see y'all soon.
Take it easy,
