A few more from SXSW

The "Artist Pass" that allowed me to, umm..., wear an "Artist Pass", I guess. I'm not entirely sure that it gave me any special privileges beyond the ability to say I have a pass and you don't.

The only live shot I've seen of us playing at the festival. Photo courtesy of Wendy Lynn Staats of the band Sunspot. Note the Artist Pass on my left leg. Really glad I had that pass.

Here's Jeff and me doing the stupid rock pose with the hired young women, just like you see in Billboard Magazine! They were good sports about posing with us middle-aged rockers.
I would guess they weren't much older than my oldest daughter. Note that the woman in the middle is holding a picture of.... The Motor Primitives! In case you're wondering why everyone is wearing a Broadjam shirt but me, Broadjam is the company that sponsored the stage we played on and they gave us all shirts, but I had worn mine the day before. Besides, I generally don't like being an advertisement while on stage. I guess I'm just funny that way.

I just happened to stumble onto your blog, following Mr Vimes. What kind of music do you play?

Suzy said...

Mr. Vimes? As in Sam Vimes -- my fantasy crush?

Suzy said...

BTW, are you a mod or a rocker?

Ed said...

Hello, Smoke,
For lack of a better description, The Motor Primitives, the band which is pictured in this post, play something like Pop-Punk. If you'd like, you can listen to some of our music on our MySpace page. If you should catch up with Mr. Vimes, please let me know; I'd very much like to meet him.

Suzy: I'm a mocker.

You rock dudes get all the hot chicks.

Ed said...

Especially the quaker vixen hot chicks. Why else would we be playing rock 'n' roll? It certainly isn't for the money. There's precious little of that.

Suzy said...

Hot chicks? Are you referring to the "broasted chickens" available at your
local deli?
