Belive it or not, I’m actually caught up on my music reviews and blogging! With Charlie Sexton and Carter Albrecht discussed in this very post….I am alllllll caught up! The pics below are from the show at Bend Studio. I have heard about Charlie for years, and really enjoyed listening to people who have played with him (like the lovely Shannon McNally). Carter plays with the local Dallas band Sorta, who I saw at Son’s of Herman Hall in Deep Ellum. I think Carter was sick the night I saw them play, and I’m happy that he was good to go that night. Both Charlie and Carter put on great sets. Carter is a huge (read tall) guy, and knows how to tap into the size and power of his voice. Charlie was an electric personality who went on stage with no less than 7 guitars and a piano (no, it wasn’t a keyboard, it was a portable piano…who woulda’ thunk it?). Both artists would be worth seeing again, so check them out when you get the chance.
Oh yea! Bend is opening a 2nd location in Fort Worth. I’ll be at the first show, and will report back later this month.
24 Season Six started tonight! Two hours of 24 madness, to be followed by 2 more hours tomorrow night. What am I going to do when Lost starts in a few weeks? That will be 2 shows that I have to watch every week….not sure I can make the time….but I MUST! I may even have to watch the first few weeks of American Idol. I’m not a true “Idol Fan”, but I do enjoy watching the first few weeks of people making total fools of themselves. I know a lot of you guys follow this show, so I hope this isn’t too offensive, but to me after the good singes have been sent to Hollywood, the show is just a 3 month long Karaoke contest. As you might imagine, I couldn’t care less about that part of the show.
