There are perks for working at an auction company. We sold the Red Heel Saloon in Longford, KS. The owner seems very excited about putting an Aaron Traffas show in her bar. It looked like a great bar to play. We’ll be playing there hopefully sometime next month.

I’m sitting here at soundman Chris Deines’s apartment in Topeka. I’m getting ready for another long day of the Kansas Auctioneer’s Convention in Kansas City at the Mariott. I had high hopes of making it to Tonganoxie to Trevor’s show tonight, but after getting out of KC at 10:00pm, I just didn’t have it in […]

Sorry about the gap. I’ve been focusing exclusively on the Purple Wave and I’ve been really sick. I finally sold for a while yesterday at our big clock auction and I’d sell one lot, cough a few times, and sell another. I normally wouldn’t have been up at all but Aaron was in the same […]

I think I still have something. After failing badly on Saturday opening for Trevor, I came out and tore up Guitar Town and nailed the brand new third verse to 200 Miles Away. I also had a request for, believe it or not, Doldrums tonight. I never thought that would happen. All this happened after […]
