Been looking forward to this weekend for some time now. Always loved 4th of July. One of the few holidays I actually like.
This weekend I return to Waverly AL for a show at Standard Deluxe. I knew Scott and the fine SD folks back when Cooley and I lived in Auburn (20 years ago, jeez!) and last year’s show there was one of my all time favorite solo shows.
This year I am taking The Downtown Rumblers with me and I also look forward to seeing The Pollies who are opening.
It’s supposed to rain all week there, but is also supposed to clear up in the late afternoon and be a nice 70 degrees saturday night. The BBQ will be great (was last year), the vibe sublime and I’m guaranteeing a fantastic night for all. COME ON OUT! (I’ve heard a rumor that Dexateens are playing a far too rare show later that evening in Auburn.)
In other news, next weekend, DBT is playing (also a rare thing right now) up in the mountains of Wyoming.
The photos look like it’s going to be an absolutely beautiful place and we’ll rock the tops off them mountains.
On the 19th-22nd, The Downtown Rumblers are hitting the road, playing Winston/Salem NC, Camden NJ, and Brooklyn NY.
Hope you’re having a great and safe summer and hope to see all of you very soon.
