XO and the black crowes

I'm a big Elliott Smith fan, so every time I find myself in Dallas or Portland or LA, I tend to listen to his music and have a drink of Johnny Walker Red. A small "tip of the hat" I suppose. He grew up in Denton, just north of Dallas, and he lived in Portland when he was in Heatmiser,and he also lived in LA for a while. So anyway, I'm actually listening to him right now, all of this albums on shuffle. We played a show in Dallas yesterday and then went to an after party at the Granada theater, it was a whole lot of fun. We became fast friends with the gentlemen in a band from Tyler Texas called Homer Hiccolm and the Rocketboys. I might have that name wrong by a few letters, and if so, I apologize. They are a very very good band. Anyway, the Black Crowes played at this after party, but they were done by the time we arrived, but, since some of us have long hair and beards (I had a wig on) some of the drunk middle aged men and women mistook us for members of the Black Crowes, and we gladly played along. A gentlemen pointed me out on the dance floor, he told me I played a great show and then he mentioned that I was "shacking up with Goldie Hawn's daughter", priceless.

Sounds like you had a good evening, even if you did miss the Black Crowes.

As for the wig, you wear it well. :)

Love the video.
