I was also invited to Nuci’s Space (www.nuci.org) to see some incredible bands play for the kids at the Nuci’s Space Camp Amped twice this month. I’ve been a fan of Elf Power (www.elfpower.com) since 2001 and ran over when I heard they were playing in the Space. I’ve been a fan of the Drive-By Truckers (www.drivebytruckers.com) since 2002 but I knew and kept it a secret that Patterson Hood (www.pattersonhood.com) was playing with the Downtown Rumblers. That’s Hood, Brad Morgan and Jay Gonzalez of the Truckers and Peter Alvanos (www.myspace.com/fabulousbird), Claire Campbell (www.hopeforagoldensummer.com) and Jacob Morris (the Moths). Seeing a full on Rock Show during day light hours in an air conditioned room, then heading back to work sure is fun, strange but fun.
I made some of these videos ‘private’ because Patterson asked me to until his new album comes out later this year.
