ALERT! End of an era TONIGHT!

A few minutes ago I got a text message from Brooks, the singer and axe-slinger of The Inflatables, alerting me to the fact that tonight will be the band’s last Wednesday-night show at Masse’s in Walnut Creek. They also play on Thursdays, but it’s more of a karaoke thing. So I don’t really know what the hell is going on.

I didn’t get back to him to get details, because that would’ve been the responsible thing to do. And I don’t feel like being responsible any more today — I already drove two kids to school this morning, and one of them had to go to Sacramento. So I’m just going to assume tonight’s it for the Inflatables and Wednesday night at Masse’s. And that’s too bad — I have many fond memories of Wednesdays with overcharging Walnut Creek cab drivers and The Inflatables, one of the greatest cover bands in the history of cover bands.

So I may just have to put my new Wednesday routine of sipping green tea and working on my cure for cancer on hold tonight and head back down for one more round with The Inflatables … only if someone promises to give me a ride home.
