The city of Austin never ceases to amaze me. Tomorrow morning I’ll be on a plane to Osaka, Japan, for a five-city tour on behalf of the City of Austin Sister Cities program. I still can’t believe it! And I still need to pack, eek! I’ll update facebook and twitter if you wanna come along for the adventure.
While I’m gone, I hope you’ll help keep local musicians healthy by visiting one of 150 businesses and venues supporting HAAM Benefit Day on Tuesday, Oct. 4. The Health Alliance for Austin Musicians offers peeps like me much-needed low-cost health coverage. They just replaced my five-year old glasses with a new pair that actually stay on my face, and I hope we can continue receiving that kind of care 😉
A huge thanks to those who packed the Cactus Cafe on Dieciséis – it was a dream to play for you in that legendary space. (ACL what? Kanye who?)
For those of you in H-town, I had a great time at the Wine Fest and can’t wait to rock for you again at the Houston Women’s Fest! To all of you, THANK YOU so much for your incredible support – I am blessed.
Con amor y paz,
