Back on Scotch

| Posted on in life, music

Damn. Shotz sucks. Longhorns told Barry that they left their Texas country at home. We promptly left. I’m glad they put that couple out on their brand new dance floor. I understand why they changed, but I don’t think it’s going to work for them…Matt Church is a good guy, but Longhorn’s notoriety came frome being THE country bar in town. Now it’s just another bar in town. Fat’s is now THE BAR in town. God bless Fat’s bar.

So Trevor’s quote for the day: “I want to roll that [person]”…said several times tonight, referring to everything from a DJ to…other guys…

You want to see rambles, check out Mike McClure’s site…crazy son of a bitch…coming back to Manhattan on my birthday. I’ll be there again…hopefully he won’t make fun of me during his set like he did the last time. He’s weird… Bastard. I’m pissed off. Pete’s sticker came off my guitar case. I can’t find it. Pete, if you read this, I’d like another sticker for my Martin case…I’d reinforce it this time with packing tape…for those of you who don’t have your own packing tape guns, you’re missing out. You should buy one…they’re $10 at Office Depot.

This marks the third time in a row that I haven’t talked to Ryan about booking a show at Fat’s. I guess I’m just waiting for the right moment. I’d like to think that.

I’m working on a new song. It’s about the same person I promised myself I’d never write about again. So much for resolutions.

“Every song I sang started with your name” –One of the new lines from the song. Look for it in late September.

| Posted on in music

Guest post from Mason Powell

Echo Lane, an alternative rock band based in Lawrence, KS, is heading to the studio to work on their first full length album. The album should consist of around 12 songs, if all of the members don’t perish in the process. We are looking at maybe a winter release as of now, but you know how that always turns out. Be sure and check out the new web site at www.echolaneonline.com.

24 May at Mike’s Sports Bar in Medicine Lodge

Hey, folks…this Saturday will be a hell of a show that you can’t afford to miss…Aaron’s going to be doing a combined show with geek rock artist Arturo Got the Shaft. It’ll be Cap’n Rob‘s last show in the Barber County, indeed the southern Kansas, area for the foreseeable future. Do not miss this show. Look for things to kick off by 8:00, with Aaron and the Shaft trading the spotlight(s) quite frequently. It’ll be a pretty laid-back party, and the entertainment doesn’t really care about anything but having a good time. It’ll be enjoyable for all…see you there.

CD sales are going well. Profitability after 2 1/2 weeks isnt’ bad, especially when it’s being almost given away for $5.00.

Aaron’s opening for Trevor this Friday at JC’s Bar and Grill in Salina. It’d be a nice little road trip and a great show for those of you with little to do.
