Now I Really Am Going To Drive To -- and Through -- El Paso
Sonic Youth has added a few Texas dates to their current tour. And one of them is in Marfa, which I can drive to from here, though it be a long, long journey. Best of all, I can stay to see the art!

Oh. My. God. Oh my God. In October, too, which is well after school. My cousin in Austin wants to know why I haven't visited more. Fuck yeah. This is perfect. Perfect! Oh my God.

Except that Marfa is longer from El Paso -- 190 miles -- than I'd remembered and even further from Austin. Still, I'm going to make every effort to attend.

I went to Marfa in Februray -- fantastic choice. I also stopped off in Juarez which was a considerabl more dicey choice.

I'd like to hear more about both. You already told me a little about Marfa. Juarez has a rep, that's for sure.

This post from the time has some pictures and a few words, but it's pretty elliptical i guess:

Chinati is, I think, a treasure in the realm of Ameican art. It's one of a kind. Do it.
