I'm headed home to Flagstaff on Thursday, for about a week. No Tucson for me, sadly, but it will be nice to be among mountains, friends, and family for a little while. Before that though, I am playing with my string quartet at a coffeeshop open mic here tomorrow night. We're playing Shostakovitch's string quartet 8, dedicated to the victims of fascism and war (and, oddly, paired with the Black Angels on the Kronos recording I mentioned earlier this week). It seems like an interesting choice for coffeeshop fare, but it's a leadup to our actual concert in January, and plus the piece fucking rocks and I think that might come through in any venue. Hooray for good music and good concerts!
