Wake for Biscuit

The makeshift wake held for Randy "Biscuit" Turner last night at Pedazo Chunk was a poignant testament to the man's far-reaching impact.

There were lots of old friends, plenty of beer and a few firecrackers. KVUE even showed up to do a live remote for the 10pm news. I wonder how that played in the bedroom communities of Williamson County?

Everyone seemed to have a story about Biscuit. Whether it was his own artistic fearlessness or his enthusiastic encouragement of others in their artistic pursuits, he was a true catalyst. Austin might've still had punk rock without Biscuit, but there's no way it would've been as much fun.
