Thank you to everyone who came out to our show at the Elephant Room! I'm kind of overwhelmed by how well it went. It was ridiculous fun, thanks to the band I'm extremely lucky to play with, but there were also more people in the Elephant Room than I've ever seen on a Sunday, so thanks for making it such an unexpected success. Everyone in the band is extremely grateful, and we can't wait to be back.
Also, we've decided to call the band "Progress," so if you see that name on a bill around town, that'll be us. If you want to get on our email list for updates about our upcoming shows, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org, or just check back here, since I'll always be posting them well in advance. We're working on booking shows at a number of other venues around Texas, too.
The Austin City Limits Festival is coming up this weekend, so our town is going to be flooded with insanity. I'm hopeful that it will be the good kind, and that nobody sets the park on fire. Stevie's playing on Saturday and I'm extremely stoked to see him. Speaking of ACL, Return to Forever tore up ACL Live last night. Chick and Lenny are telepathic. RTF is always outrageous and over-the-top, but there were definitely some moments of true genius. Love that band.
