- I went to a benefit show last night at the Abbey Pub for the tremendously talented Alejandro Escovedo, who has hepatitis-C. It was a pretty decent show, with good performances by the Frisbies with Kelly Hogan, Danny Black's Healthy White Baby and friend-of-a-friend Jane Baxter Miller, who has a terrific voice and did a fine job despite being saddled with an incompetent soundman. If anyone is interested in helping out the Alejandro fund, go here.
Also, San Franciscans: there will be a benefit show for Alejandro Escovedo on Tuesday, Sept. 2 at Slim's, with Dave Alvin, Peter Case, Chris Smither, and Chuck Prophet confirmed so far as performers. Pay a visit, why not?
- I feel like I should go to a movie this weekend. It's really hot, and I have no particular plans other than writing, and it just seems like going to a movie is something I should do. Unfortunately, there is fuck-all playing that I want to see. Lousy Hollywood!
