What's Up This Weekend?

Up until last Thursday, it was only my girlfriend who hadn't come home. Now Buster's gone. Maybe it was the same old 8 flavors of canned food week after week. Or the fact that I never bought him any new toys and he got tired of Dolly and Ducky. I know you aren't supposed to have one, but he was my favorite of the five cats. Something about that burly little body with the bobtail and the strong broad nose just melted my heart. And he loved to be loved. He especially liked his chin and chest scratched. You only found out he'd had enough when he suddenly bared his teeth and hissed or nipped you. He definitely had a wild streak in him. He made this satanic growl when he'd gnaw on his own back leg as if he'd just taken down an antelope. He loved being outside and finding adventure every day while I was at work. Maybe he just wanted to be free. By now, I realize that whatever happened to him, he's taken a path of no return, but I wonder how long it will be before I stop looking for him at the back porch.

Thursday, tonight, Terribly Empty Pockets is one of the bands at Rumba, MeltyMelty and Moon High are at Treehouse and The Summit has Thomas Jefferson Slave Apartments, Times New Viking and El Jesus de Magico. Amazingly enough, none of the aforementioned great bands are performing at Comfest. On the other hand, at the Break-a-Leg Bob Sauls Benefit #2, '09 Comfest performers including Rj Cowdrey, Donna Mogavero, Jim Volk and Victoria Parks will be helping Bob out at Victorian's.

Friday, The Twang Alliance does the happy hour at Rumba with Cur Dogs and Cowboy Hillbilly Hippy Folk followed by Comfest acts The Josh Kracjik Band and Mt. Carmel. The Floorwalkers ar at Thirsty Ear.

Saturday, Jonathan Richman is at The Summit. He is a great performer and you are guaranteed to smile.

Tuesday, Comfest performers Couch Forts and Lydia Loveless are at Treehouse.

Wednesday, Woody Pines returns to us from North Carolina to perform at Dick's. I saw him recently in Athens and he is better than ever.

Oh Danny Boy, the pipes, the pipes are calling. mark
