A "no time for the blog, just the pictures" edition...It's Shiner Sunday -- quick... cover that "Lone Star" sign! On Sunday, July 27, Ray Wylie Hubbard was scheduled to perform at Shiner Sunday at Love & War in Texas in Plano. You'd damn well better believe I was waiting for this one... I hadn't seen RWH in 3 years! He doesn't do many Sunday shows around north Texas... How cool is Shiner Sunday? You get to mingle with the performers before and after the show. Meeting the guy who penned the line "what you won't find up in heaven are Christian coalition right wing conservatives, country program directors and Nashville record executives" will probably be one of my top highlights from 2008!
My friend Mike -- never one to pass up an RWH performance -- joined me for the trip to Plano. The intro from KHYI's Brett Dillon... Ray Wylie Hubbard ROCKS! They blew an amp during the closing instrumental of "Wanna Rock N Roll"... RWH says, "One more"... He closed with "Red Neck Mother" Liz of "Liz & Lincoln", who opened for RWH Liz & Lincoln join RWH and his band... The railroad tracks (behind the crowd) were empty during the entire show. Maybe next time we'll get a train...
Other news: The kids and I will be starting a road trip to New Braunfels in about 7 hours. Destination: Schlitterbahn, with a side of barbecue. (It has been discovered that Smitty's Market in Lockhart is open Sundays...) Check back in a week or so for a trip report.
