Hello Summer

// June 14th, 2013 // No Comments » // News, Shows, update

Hello friends!

Summer is here and already underway with soaring temperatures in Austin – I look longingly out the window and wish for OUR NEW SWIMMING POOL to hurry up and be finished!! Until then, I’ve kept busy with being a dance mom in NYC accompanying my dancer daughter on an educational trip where her company got to take all kinds of great classes at legendary studios. Musically, it’s been a really fun challenge to learn the 21 song set that The Bad EMPressions are performing on June 14th. The posters and ads mention the “name” people, but I have to say that my music sister and partner in musical crime Dominique Davalos and the fantastically talented Shae Padilla have made this band extraordinary. Sometimes a group of players just clicks and there’s an organic chemistry – I feel uniquely qualified to know that feeling having gotten to experience it more than once, both with the famously iconic Go-Go’s and with the far less famous but still awesome BlueBonnets. The way that me, Shae, Dominique and Patty Schemel play together is SUCH A TREAT – I love when each musician’s style and parts lock together like it was meant to be, a band just waiting to happen. I am so proud of the┬áline up I helped bring together to make this show an event. I hope to have video, pics and journal entries for everyone who can’t be there!!


ps. A review I wrote for the Talkhouse. And….summer 2013 LIVE DATES with the BlueBonnets are posted here.
