I managed trips to Sam’s Saloon and the Melody Inn for a large diet of all music heavy this weekend – all the bands sounded pretty good, but I’m glad I had the earplugs at the ready (even if the Cocaine Wolves managed to leave their full stacks at home – a wise decision, given the size of the Mel). I also enjoyed the sight and sound of a zebrawood Gibson Explorer bass; this thing had a height-adjustable bridge that I’d like to see on other basses. Kudos to Steve for his new purchase.
The Border’s in Greenwood wasn’t being particularly kind to me in stocking my titles, although I did manage to see a couple of the books I’ve edited there. They’re going to have to step their game up a bit.
I met the most recent deadline on the laptop book, so I’ve got some time now to really go over the score for Victor/Victoria. As is the case with these shows, we’re doing some deletions and key changes that will leave my copy in a pencil-marked mess. Alternatives are being investigated, because these scores are rentals and have to be returned.
