Last weekend I published a bunch of stuff I had written earlier in the month and it caused a bit of uproar after I said a band hadn't been paid by a bar. My comments seemed to set off a bit of a Facebook tsunami and made me feel like I really should respond in some way. So to start off, here is the un-edited thread as it was posted on facebook.
So I have to drive into the city every Tuesday these days. Work in the office. Then kill fourteen hours until I can work eight more hours and then drive back home. The trick is killing those between hours without being bored to death, or spending too much money. So enter Capitol Guitars. Nice little guitar shop and some music types hanging around there. Occasionally I hear some good tunes. I've gotten to know this guy Joe.
Great music in downtown Chippewa Falls this evening. Some bluegrass inspired rock and roll at Every Buddy's and right next door at The Snout Saloon was female fronted rock & pop. The weather was perfect for walking. The stars were out. It was great to be alive, free and out to enjoy the life of downtown.
