Does Collecting Make You Feel Dirty?
In the Absence of Congress
Last night I went to see the Deerhoof show at Club Congress, but, after receiving misinformation, arrived after it had ended. I did have the chance to spend time with a few of my favorite former students, though, which tempered my disappointment. And a youngish guy named Matt, staying in Tucson for the night on his way from San Antonio to L.A., appeared to be hitting on me, which is strange because men never hit on me. Maybe it was the Phoenix Art Museum sticker on my black silk shirt that lured him. Or the combination of my new "punk" haircut and the bald spot to which it draws the viewer's attention. I'm going to have to be more careful what I drink when I'm out and about. Someone might slip me a roofie.

One can always hope.

My second Jack and Coke, procurred on my behalf by someone far more attractive than me, was so strong that I began to worry that it had been doctored. Remind me to tell you about the anxiety I had later driving home without a license.

For what it's worth, trying to double-schedule the Saturday night caused the folks at Congress to boot the headliners off the stage after 45 minutes. I can't fathom why a DJ night scheduled for 10 p.m. takes precedence over an already-playing band. (though it might also be a curfew tied to all-ages shows.) Still, Deerhoof was lots of fun.

No, it can't be a curfew, because the Of Montreal shows were all-ages and went quite late. What a terrible move on Congress's part. I've started to turn agains the place, despite the fun anniversary celebration.

Dude, the only time my band played in a real bar and got paid and everything we opened for Deerhoof. They were super nice.
