11.06.07: Memphis, TN: New Daisy Theatre: It feels like a long time ago that I was in Memphis. A lot has already happened to me since this show, both good and bad, but I'll get to that later. The most memorable thing about this November day in Memphis was hanging out with the always inspirational Adam LaClave at three of Memphis' hot spots: 1) Gus's Famous Fried Chicken (I kicked my vegetarian habits aside this time to have a taste of the dirty south), 2) Sun Studios (legends, gear, love, music) and finally, 3) Shangri-La Records (acquisitions of Aretha Franklin's "Aretha Now," B.B. King "Indianola Mississippi Seeds," The Who's "Who's Next," Rolling Stones' "Emotional Rescue.") Long live rock n' roll!
11.08.07: Austin, TX: La Zona Rosa: This was my favorite time in Austin in a good while (mainly because I get sick last time, and we played one of the best record stores in the country Waterloo Records). Moreover, it was time well spent with friends, amigos, y más amigos. Below, I'm pictured with good RGV/Austin friends Jaime Garcia (L-check out his band Musenglish) and Jerry Quintanilla (R).
11.09.07: Tulsa, Cain's: What can I say? It's kind of a blur. I remember three things: Best Buy, MexiCali Border Cafe, and mucha gente!
11.10.07: Dallas, HOB: The last House of Blues venue of the tour, and definitely, my least favorite, not much vibe for a HOB; however, the dressing rooms were very nice and accommodating for my family, some of which flew from Mexico just to see the show. ¡Gracias tía Irma y prima Martha por visitarme! Espero que Mute Math vaya a México pronto, así que podamos ver toda la raza.
11.11.07: Houston, Warehouse Live: Last show of the 52 cities, and man, was I feeling it! I was so tired that last day of tour. I wanted to throw in the towel. As the show time approached, I realized I was getting sick. So, after the show, all I wanted to do was take medicine to go to bed. Then, once I woke up, everything would be great, right?
Well, since I got home late Monday afternoon, I've been looking for my lost dog Dakota. I arrived to a silent home, dark and lonely. Five minutes after getting home, two of my dogs show up on my front porch (Thank God!), but no Dakota. I immediately go looking, along with Paul, and then, I take my other dog out to see if she'd lead me to the other. No Dakota. All day yesterday I was out looking, but nothing. Mind you, I'm sick. It has been a nightmare since I've been home, and I'm really out of gas.
