The girls got to visit Grammy and Grandaddy in Corpus Christi for the last few days of spring break. They visited the beach and parks, flew kites, and played with play-dough and Legos. Sounds like a great time! I mean, can you possibly top that? I’m attaching a couple pictures that Joyce texted to us.
Kit had some time off for the first (and maybe last) time ever over spring break this year. Everyone she works with wants this week off for South By Southwest. This week is apparently in higher demand than Christmas. So we resolved to take advantage and see some of the music in town. We showed up a little late for a free showcase at the Four Seasons for the KUTX live broadcast starting at 7:00 am. Just in case we were in danger of resting up too much, the next morning we somehow showed up at 5:45 for a 6:00 am (“stupid early”) showcase at the W Hotel for KGSR. That night we saw Lucinda Williams at The Roost outside of town. Then we were done, wiped out. In all, we saw Lucius, Typhoon, Rodney Crowell, Ages and Ages, Nicole Atkins, Rhett Miller, Jeremy Messersmith, The Mowgli’s, Robert Ellis, G. Love, Phantogram, and The Hold Steady. We heard some amazing, almost free, music and discovered new bands.
Also, we got Kit a new car.
