this is not a title

Extraordinary Rendition Bandthe world needs more girl sousaphone players…

my performances at Honk! Fest went off without a hitch, more or less. i got up at an ungodly hour (7:30) and made it to the first performance, at Casa Latina, by 9:00, where they didn’t know what was going on, and my ability to understand spanish is only because of my vague knowledge of french and latin, so i wandered around in the international district for 45 minutes or so until other honk fest/band related people showed up. we played for an hour, and then we had a break until 3:00, so i went and got breakfast and took a nap for an hour or so. the second performance was after the Extraordinary Rendition Band performed. the latino guy that’s standing in the background is someone from my band, and i suppose that i should probably know what his name is, because i’ve known him for a few years now, but i don’t… (is it yeba ignacio? i’m not sure…) i don’t suppose that it’s partially because he only speaks limited english, and i would only make myself look foolish if i tried to speak spanish…

DJ RX – White Lines is an interesting treatment of the song… in a lot of ways, it’s better than the original.

  1. the original Honk! Fest is in boston… the one we have in seattle pales in comparison to the original, but it’s all we’ve got at the moment… that and the moisture festival… 8)

  2. Yeah, it kind of surprised me when you said Honk! fest, because we (the RMO) usually play Honk! and it’s in Massachusetts. (Actually, I couldn’t make it last year, and might not go this year; there’s limited space on the bus, and work is getting so scarce, I figure I might as well stay behind.

    We had a long, boring band meeting today; ’nuff said.
