Jim Keaveny CD Release Party

Friday night in Terlingua…

Ted Arbogast at the Boatyard, Jon Brooks at the Starlight Theatre, and Jim Keaveny’s CD release party at the High Sierra. Naw, there’s nothing going on in Terlingua… except great music and a party.

Tomorrow’s the “Green Scene.” Terlingua Ghost Town will be packed, off-the-grid and sustainable lifestyle demonstrations will occur, and I’ll be playing the Boathouse with Moses Martinez and friends.

Terlingua to Austin

The link between Austin and Terlingua keeps getting stronger.

Cognitive dissonance ensued – Jim Keveany and I talked about how strange it was to see THOSE faces in THIS place.  And yet, it worked.

A group of Terlinguaists occupied Spider House Ballroom near the U.T. campus Monday night.  They brought their own crowd with them, which was augmented with Austinites with a Terlingua connection.

Legendary Legion Jam #2

The second Legiondary jam was a blast.

On a stunning full-moon night, in the desert about 25 miles North of the Mexican border, a group of musicians – from Dallas, Austin, Fort Davis, Terlingua – got together to play music and hang out.

Word got around, and some of the locals showed up to join the party.

It’s a good thing it was a warm night.  There’s no way that everybody who showed up would have fit into the American Legion hall.

I took video – 2 cameras – which means there’s a total of 12 hours of video that somebody gets to wade through to find the good parts.  In the mean time, there were a LOT of photographers there.  Looking through my shots, I think I got some good ones.  I don’t have time to whup ’em into shape, so I’m just posting snapshots here to give you an idea of what the evening was like.

Thanks to all the pickers and singers who played for free.  You’ll be gratified to know that we raised almost $200 for the Crisis Breadbasket Center.  That will feed some people.

We’ll be doing Legiondary Jam #3 in February.  Check back here for dates and details.

Enjoy the pics-   Continue reading “Legendary Legion Jam #2”
