sxsw schedule, take 12, or "okay you guys, I really mean it this time."

And THEN my most-wanted act, Robots in Disguise, cancelled their sxsw, appearance, so I have a hole in my schedule/heart. So I'm trying to decide between

1 am Sea Wolf @ Buffalo Billiards
1 am British Sea Power @ Maggie Mae's
-or-
1 am HANSON @ Cedar Door.

I mean, can I really pass that opportunity up? I don't think I can, y'all.

Woah. My work totally didn't block your comments this time! I'm slowly mastering my firewall, one website at a time.

If you go to the Hanson show, I hope you're not attacked by 16-yr-old girls who think you're there to steal their Hanson man and will later post a Hanson Secret about you: "I committed manslaughter at a Hanson show because the girl next to me was cuter than I was."

God, the possibility of having a Hanson secret posted about me is basically the momentum for my entire life's work, mere.

Kick your firewall's butt! Take THAT, MFAH! (not Take That, because of course your firewall does not derserve the glory of 90s power pop.)

I think I'll be at half the shows you have listed and I'm nowhere near completing my list.

I'll keep an eye out for a girl with a sassy phlebotomy button.

Erin said...

gus, I've already started revising again. I doubt I'll have my schedule set even when I'm walking into a showcase for the night.

I will totally wear a phlebotomy button, just for you.
