The Clumsy Lovers

Lexington, Kentucky

Sunday was a pretty long drive from Missouri to Kentucky. Even though it was a day off we left pretty early so we could get to Lexington to have an evening to do something fun. Our friend Lynette left us to drive back to Denver. She had spent her spring break coming to all of our shows for a week or so. It was a lot of driving for her but she had a good time and we’ll see her next time we go to Colorado. I like seeing roadtrippers along the way. It’s nice having an entourage or a posse along when we show up at the gig.  Makes us feel like important rappers:) Actually the only time I wrap is at Christmas.

Booking our hotels through Priceline/Orbitz like sites we never really know where we might end up, but for a good price we found ourselves at a really nice Hilton. And I don’t mean Paris. Right next to a movie theatre! There were lots of choices but we ended up going to Last Chance Harvey with Dustin Hoffman. I think we all agreed is was a $1:50 well spent and a relaxing way to spend a Sunday evening.

Monday night we were back at a club called The Dame. It’s a great big rock room and host’s all kinds of popular bands from The Drive By Truckers to Reverend Horton Heat. There was an energetic young group playing first called the Tense Kids. They had an interesting concept approach to their music. Very eclectic. We got up and played for an hour starting with Walk in the Light of Your Fire and ending with a barnburnin’ Way Down the Old Plank Road. We figured out later we haven’t been there for almost four years! It feels like it’s been about two weeks. Judging by the turnout on a cold night in Kentucky, it’ll likely be another four until we are back in Lexington. At least. But you never know. If we bump into David Letterman in Montana and he features us on Late Night and Tyler starts dating Paris Hilton and Elvis Costello holds up our album on Rolling Stone…we could soon be back in Lexington playing to a sold out crowd!
