Austin Lounge Lizards

This evening, we went to see the Austin Lounge Lizards in concert. Whee! We had much fun.

The Lizards were in fine form, as usual. They started with their bluegrass cover of Pink Floyd's "Brain Damage" and went on from there.

They played lots of great songs, and almost all of my favorites. They played Lori's favorite, "Jesus Loves Me (But He Can't Stand You)."

I got to talk with Conrad a bit before the show, and he confirmed that the song "Old Blevins" was named after the "Old Blevins Road" exit on I-35 between Austin and Dallas.

Songs I can remember, in a vague attempt at the order in which they were played:
Brain Damage
Hey Little Minivan
Jesus Loves Me (But He Can't Stand You)
Forty Years Old and I'm Livin' in My MOm's Garage
Stupid Texas Song
Paint Me on Velvet
Hot Tubs of Tears
That Godforsaken Hellhole I Call Home
The Grunge Song
We Are In Control
Rasputin's HMO
The Dogs, They Really Miss You
A Hundred Miles of Dry
Shallow End of the Gene Pool
Pizza on the Ground
Rock and Roll Lawyer
Highway Cafe of the Damned
Teenage Immigrant Welfare Mothers on Drugs
Hillbillies in a Haunted House

They just looked like they were having so much fun as they played!

We ended up buying the two CDs of theirs that we didn't have and getting them autographed.

One unfortunate addendum: at the concert, I broke the hematite ring I wear. I do have a spare, since I've broken them enough that I know I need spares, but still it's a bit unfortunate.
