After leaving El Cosmico and meeting our friend JP "Jalepinio" Schwartz for a lovely kale salad lunch, we headed South East for our first show at The Boathouse in Terlingua. (Not without stopping at the local thrift store of course, and picking up 3 dresses and a scarf for $20!) The scenery was absolutely gorgeous in the desert. Lisa practiced her set in the back on her ukulele while I tapped along on my new bongo's and sang some harmonies. We arrived around sunset and Kay, our host, showed us to our RV - the digs for the night. Lisa and I took the top bunk, while Kacy and Nick grabbed the bottom.
The show started at 7pm and Lisa and I shared the evening, as well as a delicious burger and Maker's Mark shots. It's been a while since I've played solo, but was a good opportunity to test out three new tunes I've been working on.
After the show, we headed over to the Starlight, where I ran into Kris Wade, one of the bass players on my new record. Was great to see him and catch up, as well as meet his new wife, Ann! Sweet, sweet people with awesome dogs.
Today, we head to Lajitas and the Thirsty Goat Saloon to play and stay at a million dollar resort. Will be a contrast to our more rustic accommodations of the last few nights. More updates soon to come!
