Today, we went to Round Peak Vineyard/Skull Camp Brewery to do the last of the four Bruce Springsteen shows with Vagabond Saints Society. I can now purge those things from my mind. It’s time to move on to the next thing, which in this case, is a revisiting.
I’m actually performing next Saturday in Carrboro, NC at Cat’s Cradle playing with VSS doing a re-imagined XTC’s Skylarking show like I performed in this part March. I won’t be doing “Making Plans for Nigel” but I’ll be doing “Dear God” again. A different youngster will be singing with me this time. To my knowledge this will be the first time they’ve done this. Usually, once they complete a cycle, they purge and move on. There was a lot of demand for this one, though. Especially in Carrboro, where this kind of music was/is definitely a lifestyle more than a musical genre. Well, hey! I’ll get to say that I performed at the legendary Cat’s Cradle. I gotta reacquaint myself with that song, now!
Until tomorrow, same blog channel…
“By the time we made it up to Greasy Lake
I had my head out the window and Janey’s fingers were in the cake
I think I really dug her ’cause I was too loose to fake
I said, ‘I’m hurt.’ She said, ‘Honey, let me heal it'” – “Spirit in the Night” by Bruce Springsteen
