On the Road

We’ve been stuck in San Diego for a few days. Not that I’m complaining, we’ve been mostly sitting in the hot tub with a beer, but we’re all longing to do more concerts. We played at Acoustic Music San Diego which kind of left us with mixed feelings as the greeting from the manager there was less than pleasant. But we’re all looking forward to our gigs in Austin. As we’re actually staying for 2 extra days after SXSW is over we were talking about maybe getting us another gig, like a SXSW after party kind of thing. That would be fun!

Tomorrow we’re hitting the road again and to make the days pass and spend less time in the car we’re cutting the trip into a 3 days drive instead of 2 days of loooong hours in the car. We’ve mapped our route on roadsideamerica.com and have a few funny things to see on the way to Austin. I’m looking forward to Shakespear’s Ghost Town, and the guys want to see the Bush Gallery of the Pacific War.

I’m not in Texas yet but I did manage to buy myself a pair of seriously cool cowboy boots today! They’re blue so I’m feeling like sining “blue suede shoes” only I have to change it to “blue suede boots” haha.

For all of you that want some free music as a special treat for SXSW, text SXSW2010 to 41411 (US only).

See you at SXSW!

Some good new music

I don’t buy music that often, especially not now that I have spotify. But I actually bought an album today, and it was bloody hard to find it. You see I saw the movie “Ghost town” a while ago and heard a song I really liked. It turned out to be Mason Jennings “Which way your heart will go” from the album “Boneclouds”. I tried his website and I tried iTunes. I’m not a fan of Amazon as nothing ever seems to be delivered when I order from them so finally through Last.fm I found a digital download site who distributed this album. It actually inspired me to write a song as I didn’t quite catch the lyrics at first and thought he sang something else which I later used in my song 🙂

I also want to share this beautiful video with you, and the music isn’t half bad either. When I find the album I just might buy it too…
