Lubbock, TX rules!

Well everyone in Austin, TX told us Lubbock would suck and they all referred to it as "Buttocks" too but when we pulled into the Buddy Holly's hometown we met some wonderful people, had great BBQ and found a gorgeous campsite on Buffalo Springs Lake.  We all played a great show at the Blue Light for a bunch of college kids (Texas Tech is in Lubbock, 32,000 undergrads) who loved us and we can't wait to go back!  "Tear it up Yankees!", they kept shouting.  Too funny.  Now we are in Santa Fe, NM.  Beautiful town with an old "pueblo" vibe.  Turns out they are having their "Burning of the Zozobra" festival today so fortunately for us we get to see a 40-foot figure go up in flames!  Very exciting!  Pictures to come once we see it all go down!

Here are some pics I couldn't upload yesterday:

  1. Oh I am so glad you guys hit it off with Jones. Now you know what I know. Eric is a great guy, a great host, and a solid musician who knows the Austin scene. For the year I lived there we tore up the town. Not to mention Nashville, but that's another story. Yeehaw, y'all!
