at least i will see coffinberry sunday night, knock on genuine wood veneer. i could have seen them tonight too but the idea of sitting through another Record Label Showcase didn't do it for me, plus if i'd felt up to it I woulda been at TDH. i better plan to show up arse early on Sunday given that the venue has been known to put on bands at the crack of 8 pm.
90% of seeing decent bands seems to be persistence. Either that, or live over the club. (Which might not be a bad idea but I'm saving it to do when I'm old and broke and have given away most of my crap to relatives, eBay or the Salvation Army.)
a friend did call earlier, which cheered me up and kept this day from being a complete blot on the 'scutcheon. also the porch dudes finally constructed a set of rickety temporary steps which look straight out of Dr. Seuss and which i have to slide down on my fanny to keep from falling off, but at least they get me to the only air conditioned part of the house.
