... country, blues and rockabilly tradition continues to bounce off the walls to this day.
The Wagoneers weren't the first band we saw, just the best. On Friday night we saw "Jimmy Fallen & The Angels." Jimmy said the name with a straight face which I greatly admired. All their musical parts fitted tightly together (including the substitute bass player) but genre wise it became a bit unglued. They bounced around between retro punk, country and Dwight Yokam ...

Skyfall movie which I am sure they much preferred to baby stuff!
Sunday was a really nice day out in nearby San Antonio, the most visited city in Texas with a
population of 1.3m. About an hour away from Austin, San Antonio is really
romantic and reminiscent of Venice with its cute river and boat rides. As Masi
and Masa had been on it more times than they can remember, Raaj and I went on
