ACL Pre show Wednesday
It was a nice easy flight into Austin today, a day before the crowds hit the airport and we headed right over to Salt Lick BBQ for the best BBQ in Austin. They never disappoint. Hopefully they will have some turkey at the airport on my way out. With the freezer bag they provide, it will make a nice dinner when I get home.
Our first music stop of the week was The Saxon Pub. Actually, Deb, Linda and Liz hit Artz for some female singer/songwriter stuff and Matt, Tammy and I went the rock and roll route with Monte Montgomery. Monte is an acoustic guitar player, but don't let that fool you. He has more tricks up his sleeve then just about any electric guitar player around. What we watched for about 75 minutes was amazing guitar work, held together with some very nice songs. The speed and skill that he uses as he moves up and down the fret board is just amazing.
Tomorrow may be a long day. First musical moment will be at 7:30AM... if we get up. Wish us luck.
