Orange Show Sighting

this was a message I just saw from a concert goer via myspace. Sorry Flip, don't check myspace nowadays, (or update this here blog, working on it). Thanks for the kind words. Your inclinations are right, I am inspired by that feel dont think of it consciously when I play. I'll try it some time.

We came for Thao but wow can you play. Thao is the heart and soul but man you are the master time keeper. I'm an old guy. I've heard a lot of music and have been disappointed at times with live shows but man that was good. I saw Tim Buckley with his band in a roller rink in Tucson towards the end of his last tour in 1975. They were so on the money and didn't show if they cared they were playing a roller rink. The rink wasn't closed and there were still kids rolling around. I thought that was an odd venue but watching you and yours playing in an empty cement garden pond in the middle of June Bug June. It was a very enjoyable night for us and thank you for your sweet (sweat) music.
I've only been listening to TN & TGDST for about a year and i would hear this revolutionary war drumming thing at times. I just read Thao and you met at a reenactment. I'm guessing a colonial era type reenactment. Am I imagining things when I say I hear that coming through at times in your music?
I know what you all do is a lot of work but it appears to me you have tons of fun as well. Have a great tour.

From the looks of it, he saw me on Thao's tour this summer with Mirah and the Most of All, and probably at a venue in Houston called the Orange Show. Beautiful place that is a single man's monument to his love of the citrus power of oranges.
