How many weeks away is Spring Break? I think I’m ready for a vacation. Oh well.  Apparently the weather-people are calling for snow tonight, I would really appreciate it if they were right for once. Everyone could use a snow day every once in a while, even if for no other reason then to see Professors scramble to adjust lesson plans to accommodate and so that I can sleep past 9am.
Leave a comment about your favorite live show you’ve seen and why, I’ll pick the craziest story and talk about it on the air next week during the show as well as sharing my craziest live show story.
Enjoy your hypothetical snow day if it happens, and if not let’s all grumble about weather-people. That’s what they’re there for anyway.

2/15/10 Possible Ear Infection Can’t Dampen My Pre-South By Jitters

Only a month until South By Southwest in Austin. Getting pretty excited. I’ve never been to a major music festival before, so this is pretty big for me. I’ll be excited to see a lot of bands I routinely miss seeing in the DFW area as well as talking with artists and other music people.

Anyone else going to South By? Let me know your thoughts. Are there any cool places I need to hit up during the festival? Any excellent bands that I need to see while I’m down there? I’m a Vegetarian, so are there any sweet Vegetarian hotspots for me to check out?
