Goner Message Board / Memphis / helllooooo internets
Posted: Oct 21, 2009 11:50 am
 
Hi all! Just moved here from Texas to work at UofM. This town sure is pretty. Got a nice rental in E/V.

Gonerfest was a hell of a hoot and a nice thing to witness after only being here for a few weeks. Sadly I didn't get peed on or swung at.

I heard this is a tough town to find people to play music with. Is this true? I should probably sit tight for awhile anyway cause my job is taking up all my times.

Is there a good website for more detailed information about upcoming shows? The flyer and the appeal aren't exactly verbose when it comes to discussing why I would want to attend something. :( I guess this bb is probably a pretty good resource. I'm glad I found it!

How are y'all doing?

Memphis is a great town.
There's tons of folks to play with; it's just that everybody plays in everybody else's band. Not a bad thing. Just lots of bands.

What do you play?

Sam's just been looking at my craigslist again. I've told you before, Sambeaux: Serious inquiries only - none of this "curious" stuff".

I really am looking at putting something new together, though.

pffft! I had to get a facebook message from someone in New York City to find out about Robyn Hitchcock playing here and only the night before it happened.

I'm not that great at any of the instruments I play. So we'd need a bucket and a mop for spillage.

Yeah, I've lived in Denton and Athens previously. Two towns notorious for everyone being in everyone else's band (or the entire town being in the band in the case of Dark Meat). I play fiddle, guitar, bass, keyboard listed in order of increasing shittiness.

triple post! I love the minimalist nature of this BB. No avatars, no proper quoting, no pics, no pm's. just your word against mine.

Denton? When? I lived there most of 2000.

I lived there from 2005 - three months ago. If you played music with people, I'm sure we have at least a dozen mutual friends.
