My home has long been known affectionately as the Lubbock Music Consulate to South Austin. My wife and I have hosted about a dozen public house concerts in our living room, and the common theme has been all the artists have been from Lubbock or have some association with Lubbock music. Our first house concert was Amanda Shires with Rod Picott in 2009; that night I declared Amanda would be the Next Big Thing From Lubbock (which is always a thing) and that has since proven true with a big career in Nashville and her marriage to Americana music hero Jason Isbell. We’ve hosted Bob Livingston of the Lost Gonzo Band; Colin Gilmore & Jon Notorthomas; Lubbock legend Junior Vasquez and his daughter Tori Vasquez (who I’d venture to say is the new Next Big Thing From Lubbock); and many more excellent musicians and storytellers right there in our living room, which is a treat like no other which everyone should experience.
My brother-in-law David is an excellent amateur photographer with a great eye for composition and light, and he regularly takes pictures at our events. This large painting is inspired by one of David’s photos of musicians’ gear before our 7th house concert on Feb/12/2011, which featured The Prairie Scholars aka Andy & Jessica Eppler, Lubbock natives who are now firmly ensconced in Longmont Colorado, and our good friend Doug Haines aka Doctor Skoob, of Lubbock via Texas Tech who is now a master of literature in North Carolina.
This piece is the featured work in the April 2015 exhibit at Tornado Gallery in Lubbock.
