Too Far West (and Not Far Enough)
Two tours I really, really want to see, the reconstituted Lemonheads and Yo La Tengo aren't even going to make it over the Rockies. And there are others I'm excited about that won't stop anywhere between California and Texas. Is it so awful here in winter? I mean, I understand why bands might not want to drive vans across the desert in June. But this is the time of beauty and relative warmth on the I-10 corridor. Speaking of which, I'm realizing yet again that Austin is the best place to catch tours in the United States, since folks their can catch ones that are centered on both halves of the country. Part of me wants to go see Evan Dando there, but it's not the part grounded in reality.

How it all started in the kicthen

I empathize. I have family in Austin I'd love to see, and it would be so nice to visit them and see the Lemonheads. Except the time is just not free. I'll have to dream it, I guess.

Fifteen hours in the car each way is too many. And the flight costs more than it should. But the time is the biggest impediment of all.

Oh, I love road trips, but of course they take more time and I have so little unplanned time these days. I wouldn't fly unless I had at least a week to hang with family and explore Austin.

On a semi-related note, I saw the best concert I've seen in a long while tonight. The Album Leaf at Congress. I didn't know the band too awfully well, but I got the tickets free, and they were great, if you're into that whole post-rock/instrumental thing.

Thanks for the tip. I've heard of the band, but don't know their music.

I'll see if I can take some video on my camera.
