Not-So-Lazy Sunday

Now that I'm sufficiently recovered from letting happy hour at the Dog & Duck Pub become one-third of my waking hours, it's time to start gearing up for tomorrow.

First off, the under-utilized Farmer's Market on Burnet Road is hosting the first Texas Barbecue Festival tomorrow from noon to 6pm. Vendors include Cooper's Old Time Pit Bar-B-Que from Llano, Meyer's and Southside Market from Elgin, and our own Ruby's BBQ and Artz Rib House. They'll also have panel discussions, music on the Brentwood Tavern Stage and plenty of beer. Best of all, the whole she-bang is within stumbling distance of my swinging duplex.

Later on, Emo's will host a memorial show for Randy "Biscuit" Turner from 3pm to ??? with Pong, the (reunited) Dicks, Punkaroos, Pocket FishRmen, Exene Cervenka from X, the Sexy Finger Champs (my ex-wife's band), the Yuppie Pricks, Areola 51, Insect Sex Act, Naughahyde Dream Sequence, the Delinquents and the Slurpees. Proceeds will go to Biscuit's mom, Nellie Mae.

That's a pretty tremendous line-up and it says a lot about what a galvanizing and influential force Biscuit was.
