Still Here, and Now There

If you live in or around Nashville, you're pretty much morally obligated to attend this show, on behalf of those of us living in more culturally remote corners of the South.

A very special evening one night only!

I'm happy to mention that I've started writing for, an ensemble Americana music weblog. That's exciting to me, and should also be good for this dusty creaky cobwebbed old Tent Revue, once I get the gears cranking again.

I'm sort of enlisted at Hickory Wind as an anachronist, which pleases me fine, only right now there is a lot of exciting new music hitting the shelves. Or the web servers, if you prefer. For starters, Solomon Burke's country record Nashville becomes available on Sept 26, and Nina Nastasia's On Leaving is encoded as binary numbers and uploaded for your lossless commercial replication next Tuesday. Myself, I'm going to the record store.



Hey, welcome back! I had just about given up on you, and had nearly voted you off the Island/Blogroll. Congrats on the Hickory Wind gig -- they were pretty much the first blog to link to The Monochord, so I have a special place in my heart for them.

But how writing for two blogs will increase your output on any one of them is ... not obvious ...

Well, anyway. Keep up the good work!

Hey Kurt, I'm glad you hadn't given up on me yet.

After free time, which I should have more of now, the big factor is momentum. When I'm writing, I'm writing; when I'm not, I'm not.

"When I'm writing, I'm writing; when I'm not, I'm not."

Ain't THAT the truth.

Good to see you. :)

Hey K McC, the e-mail I have for you doesn't work. Drop me a line will you?
