jimmy moore, who owns the haven, is a real good fella, and cara cassaday who tends bar there is a fave of the stoogeband. (ask jon teague to tell you the "kerry von ehrich dream" story sometime.) teague had just played lola's with pinkish black, and he let hembree and lee allen use tommy atkins' beloved sunn 300T. ray was on the mend from having his spleen out the week before; it didn't seem to affect his performance at all. i was particularly gratified to see blues papa james hinkle watching from the patio behind us, and johnny trashpockets from e.t.a., who we wanna do shows with when we come back in the fall. we played a good set, and my sweetie 'n' i were home not long after the sun set.
today: hello kitty waffles with daughter and granddaughter, work, then dinner chez the outlaw chef, who has the same berfday as me. it's gonna be a goodun.
