today my neck hurts from headbanging – yes, i did it and i’m not ashamed. after a weekend of music on the less brutal side of things i kind of lost it when DRIPFED took the stage. i was a bit lit on whiskey too.
tiwrench was amazing this year. some other highlights include NIGHT OF JOY and HOT WHITE, both denver bands that played friday night. on saturday i caught a great set by VIA and last night i enjoyed LISA FRANK in addition to DRIPFED. there were more, but i’d have to look at my schedule to remember them. not only does my neck hurt, but my entire head as well.
i was glad to table with the distro. for the past year or so i’ve shirked dragging the distro out to shows and instead have just put records at the blast-o-mat record store. although the record store is good deal for both of us – blasto gets a bulkier selection and growler stuff is available anytime there is a show, which is most nights – i was reminded why tabling is so enjoyable while at titwrench. i had interface with music fans. i met and reconnected with a lot of people. i sold records and got recommendations for many more. it was the pleasure of running a record distro that i’d been missing.
my weekend was full of stimulation and excitement. tonight i’m taking it easy and starting season 2 of THE WIRE then going to bed early.
