Sunday we hit Little 5 late for the Benjamin parade. We thought wed missed it as there were only 4 or 5 people sitting on the curb but the 4 cop cars made us think twice so we asked. No, we hadnt missed it but apparently everyone else HAD. We stepped inside Junkmans Daughter for some casual shopping and overheard the cashier, Man, last year there were TONS of people, they had floats, everything. This year its a few rag-tag folks who look like they dont have anything better to do. He hit the nail on the head.
Unfortunately it felt like my head was the nail with the hangover from the Rockabilly Rumble I was carrying around. I didnt feel up to a near-lonley march to Cabbagetown so we headed home.
Later we were going to catch the Benjamin documentary at the EARL. Again we arrived a few minutes late, thinking wed be missing something. This time instead of a small turnout, there was NO turnout, not even the movie showed up!
Frustrated, we headed home, too dejected to drag our sorry asses over to the Masquerade where wed planned to hit the Hank Williams III and Rev. Horton Heat show. Turns out it wasnt the advertised $5, but $10, and damn near sold out even at that. Reliable reports included the word Shit hole, sardines, and when I got home I took a shower and the water came off me yellow from all the smoke.
For once that day we werent sad wed missed the show.
Speaking of Sundays, Cowboy has been doing Sunday nights at Dotties. I havent seen him play but youll probably recognize him.
Meanwhile, if youre in a band we got some good cybertips for you. You can upload your music digitally to mp3.com and theyll press a CD, stick it in a jewel case with a cover and sell it to folks and you get half the proceeds, FREE.
Here's the FAQ on their DAM (digital audio music) CDs
Id like to thank degenerate Beau of Blind Slim for sending that tidbit in.
