a stripped down HIO lineup with a great andre edmonson mix made it easy to hear everybody. think this is the configuration we'll stick to for awhile. dig the interaction between marcus' 'bone and hembree's small instruments. i backed my stage volume way off and played a lot of screwdriver and clothespin gtr as well as using the ebow.
terry didn't play at all; instead, he did a live painting which was projected on a screen behind us. wound up selling it for $100, which he'll donate to tommy a.'s family.
kurt rongey from the underground railroad was taking pictures, and andre got almost our whole set on video. when we finished, there was a guy with the sticker design on a piece of red construction paper that he got all of us to sign. i asked terry who he was, and he said, "i thought _you_ knew him!"
tonight at the kessler theater in oak cliff (two blocks from the second place i lived in texas!), it'll be terry, hembree, billy wilson on theremin, and your humble chronicler o' events.
