Jim Stringer @ Giddy Ups (03/31/2011)

There are only so many words to describe the fun everyone has when Jim and the guys take to the stage.  So, we’ve given up trying to find new ones. 🙂  Whether it’s “Bobby Time, Bobby Time, Bobby Time” (a minimum of three songs made popular by someone named Bobby), music trivia, guests, original songs or covers, stories, or just plain good music, Jim and the guys entertain everyone, every time.  They must do it for the love of what they’re doing because they give a full out show whether they’re playing to 10 or 10,000.

Air Conditioning in Austin, TX (03/26/2011)

The air conditioning went out in our apartment on a Friday night.  No problem, it’s early spring!  Riiiight!!!!!!!!! On Saturday, the temps start climbing like it’s the middle of summer!  What to do?  Well, we did a quick search to find out who was playing where.  Found some of our favorites were scheduled at a bar, a grocery, and a coffee-house!   Ya just gotta love the Austin music scene.  Our first stop was The Continental Club for Redd Volkaert’s Saturday afternoon matinée.  Then, to Central Market’s café for George Ensle.  Finally ended at NeWorlDeli to hear Susan Maxey and Mark Viator.  We’d already planned to go see Susan and Mark, Redd and George were welcome detours.  🙂
