The weather could not have been nicer this past Saturday in midtown Little Rock, and my only regret is not having the time to sample the fare offered up by all the various food trucks assembled in the beautiful village of Hillcrest.( Food trucks in my old home town? WHAT?!? Why couldn't I line up as a boy for Mexican street corn or Asian-fusion empanada sliders? Well, at least we DID have tamales... )
My punk rock dream came to pass, by the way! Many old punkers did indeed show up with their kids to enjoy the show and I managed to get through it all without blubbering like an infant. Graham & Lisa Cobb, Michael & Mel Boyd, Andy Conrad, just to name a few. Andy pointed out the parking lot we were performing in used to be the location of the old Circle K, where a lot of skate punks used to gather. FULL CIRCLE, BABY! Thanks to Jason Weinheimer for helping out with the sound issues ( shout out to Jo & Pace! ), Mike O'Malley, Dennis & Joanna Campbell,( Camp Mitchell alumn! ), Jeff, Lori, Gemma, & Greta Smithwick. ( Burt Taggart, as always. Dude, you are my rock ).
Apologies to any old punkers I may have left out ( Look, you're a punk. You should be used to being left out; go put on some Discharge & trash your room )...
