One last moment while the Farfisa is still quiet.  This is the most coherent, awake, and not exhausted I will look for the foreseeable future, as this weekend is entirely taken up with playing loud power pop music.

Tonight:  Fort Worth, TX - Lola’s - benefit show for Charlsie Grace of The Artist Collective.  Us (The Diabolical Machines), Missing Sibling, Year of the Bear, so much more.  8PM.  Donations at the door for Charlsie’s medical bills.

Tomorrow:  San Antonio, TX - The Mix - our first time in SA, and a big ol rock show with us (The Diabolical Machines), Langton Drive, and General Avocado.  10PM.  No cover.

Sunday:  back in Fort Worth, TX - Fred’s - we, The Diabolical Machines, perform in the Fort Worth Weekly’s Music Awards Showcase at 5PM.  Free.

I have a very busy weekend coming up - I will basically be constantly either playing my vintage Farfisa combo organ at loud volumes (hopefully in front of people!), or traveling to and from places where I will be playing my Farfisa at loud volumes.

Friday, there’s a benefit show for my friend Charlsie Grace of the local D/FW booking agency The Artist Collective.  She’s been diagnosed with Huntington’s Disease, and my band The Diabolical Machines, along with Missing Sibling, Year of the Bear, Spacebeach, New Fumes, and Mercury Rocket, will be putting on a benefit show for her at Lola’s here in Fort Worth.  All donations will go to her medical expenses.  She’s always been a big supporter for us and I really hope to see a big crowd out for this.

Saturday, we make the trek down to San Antonio for the first time.  I’ve always wanted to have a go at performing in San Antonio, and we’re finally making it happen.  We’ll be at The Mix, a popular bar/venue on N. St. Mary’s Street.  Joining us will be two great San Antonio bands - the fantastic indie rock band Langton Drive, and the funky pop of General Avocado.  No cover at this show.

Sunday, we have to head right back to Fort Worth, because we’re performing in the Fort Worth Weekly Music Awards Festival.  We’ll be at Fred’s over off 7th Street at 5:00 PM.  We’re playing the fest because we’re nominated for two awards in the Weekly’s big yearly awards thingy - EP of the Year and Female Vocalist Performance of the Year.  You can go vote right here (our categories are on Page Three).  This show is also no cover.

So now that I’ve put this out there, please come hang out!  It’s going to be a busy, tiring, and fun weekend.

An Instagram video shot by a fan of our show at The Grotto on Saturday. We’re performing our song “Get Scrappy!”

Due to the Instagram 15-second limit, the video cuts out the exact instant before our guitarist/vocalist Steph says a bad word.

That’s me over on the Farfisa combo organ, seen as the video pans.

I’m turning 32 this Saturday.  The hell?

Anyway, we’re having a rock show party to celebrate.  My band (The Diabolical Machines) + Dallas all-woman/all-awesome agro pop group The Chloes + Fort Worth fuzzed-out slacker rock trio Missing Sibling.  It’s at The Grotto here in Fort Worth (over on University Drive off 7th Street), and doors open at 9:00.  C’mon and join us for drinks and merriment and loud music.
