Subject: [hix] Seattle Borders Show

Just couple notes on my impressions of the Borders Seattle gig. The band came in looking like they had been put through the ringer. Trouble getting through the rental car maze at the airport. Dan Hicks was in rather foul temper. BUT somehow he can get away with it. Made for some pretty cool adlibs of accents and impromtu stories and unscheduled solos that had the band guessing. They make a wonderful noise. Finally, Hicks DID come back and sign CDs and the store posters that were given away. I couldn't make the evening show unfortunately. The album is great. Everyone support this guy so we don't have to wait so long for more music. But I guess I'm preaching to the choir.
