The Enchiladas opened for another band that was playing for free and essentially everyone there was a friend or family member of members of one of the two bands. There was this one guy, who I like to call Dale Jr. (for reasons that should become obvious when you look at the picture below), who didn't seem to be friends with anyone but the sound guy, who's name was Mike, appropriately.
The whole band was very relaxed and seemed to be having a good time. They played great and it was fun to listen to them. The main act was a three-piece group and I realized that I'm officially too old to see live music with a drum kit. I was wishing for some earplugs. Here's a picture of the Enchiladas performing. Apologizes to Jill who said she hated the picture and to Sara who looks like she's getting impaled by the mike:

Finally, some big personal news...I'm supposed to be published tomorrow in USA Today! Yes, it's true! I'm super excited that hotel guests across the country will sip their Royal Cup Coffee and skim my little piece on the crazy holiday catalogues I've received. I say "supposed to be" because I'm convinced that something will go awry and I'll get bumped or they'll realize I'm just humming the words and faking it and that I'm not a real writer. They'll come to my house with laptops a-blazing, shouting, "the jig is up! We know the last thing you published was in your high school literary magazine!" So, should the publication come to pass, I will link to it in tomorrow's post. Hope you all had a great weekend!
