Good things come in strange packages…

| Posted on in music

I just got off the phone with Susan Marchman…that’s right…ever heard of Houston Marchman? She called to tell me my CD order didn’t go through. Seemed pretty damn cool…it was nice to say I had heard in Kansas that Houston’s show last night went very well…kind of impressed her. They’re going to send the CDs before they even get my check. Nice people.

So the show at Route 40 in Victoria got cancelled. Jim talked to Rick, the owner, and he forgot all about it. He booked a band from Kingman, who I can only assume are “Possum [sic] Hunter”. Looks like we’re not going back there. It’s too bad…we had decided to play the show for free so we wouldn’t have to charge a cover, so we’re not out any financially. It sucks because that’s Jim’s and Johnny’s home town bar. That’s ok. We’ll play the Library or some place in Hays. We’re not giving up on western Kansas just yet…at least not until we find out how well [Jason] Boland does on the 13th.

This will give us a chance to start practicing with Johnny.
