I went to go see the penultimate Luna show last night (there's another tonight - the last) at the Bowery Ballroom. I have only once before seen a show there, and had never seen Luna before. Kudos to Bowery Ballroom for having a re-entry smoking policy. I wish more venues would be so considerate of thier patrons. Luna was good too. I enjoy thier textures, and the songwriting. Luna offers a very intimate feel at their shows, and the crowd responds to it by talking to the band between numbers, lots of inside jokes, and song requests. This sort of rec-room vibe is enhanced by Dean Wareham's complete anti- rock star persona. They are like his extended family, and far be it from him to dress for the occasion. It was a good show, and Luna wil be missed by many, but not as many as those who have missed them completely for the past twelve or so years.

I blogged that Dallas has no PBS, of course I was premature, and let's face it - wrong. KERA, Dallas' local Pulic Broadcasting station is, in fact, open for business. I must have clicked past it a number of times on Sunday, but I found it yesterday, and so I apologise to the good people of KERA, and Dallas. Last night we went out for dinner in the West End, and had a fine time. Dallas does have much to offer the weary traveller and the tourist alike, and that's why nine out of ten Presidents claim that Dallas is a great place to visit.
