I am at the sadly closing coffee haven, Bad Ass Coffee Company here in Redding, California.
Two bands re playing tonight, and I am typing away, listeniong to the bass, and the reverb, the electric guitars, and inspired vocals of two different bands, from where? Salt Lake City? OMG. I am having a blast. They are wrapping up one band, and moving onto the next. I have little to add, except I want yopu to know, napkins, chewed up, and molded make fabulous ear protection. I know that is gross.... I am not into protecting your delicate sensibilities as i am into reporting the truth.
The bands playing are Goodnight Sunrise, and The Larusso Band.
I suppose I have to accept the fate of my favourite blogging hole. I love the coffee. I love the convenience. I am sad that so many of my friends are now going to have to find new work, and the beautiful people that run this store are hopefully moving on to better ventures.
As for the bands... They were all excellent, and I am duly pleased with the music. I hope they are able to get on to ntheir next destination safely. They ended up holed up here in Redding. The roads were closed off due to snow.
I am here, just keeping it real.
Thank you for reading.
