Fire in the Water/Earth in the Air PAR-TAY in Lubbock!

OK, last year, when this was held at Stubb’s here in Austin, Billy Gibbons jumped the stage and tore it up with some of the stinkiest blues antics I’ve ever heard live, ever. I shot some of the pics of it. Billy Bob Thornton and Stu Cook were wandering around. If this is anything like last year’s, it’ll be one of the SINGULAR live music experiences of your life, beyond hyperbole.

Southwest Airlines is offering $74 non-stop flights, so if you don’t go, it wasn’t because you couldn’t afford it. I pee myself slightly just thinking about it. In case you’re not on the list (you should get on the list), here’s Oges’ invite email:
