Escovado end of year bash and Bonding

After the Buddy Du I had a long day. First up was the start of a hunt for a laptop with Cassidy, preceeded by a late brunch at Curras. After that I just had time to get my freebie do-over car wash and had to go get Bonded.

We went to see James Bond Quantam of Solace with the Brit ex-pat crowd. For fun I wore my tux jacket, white shirt and bow tie, albeit with Jeans. I had the company of a stunning Bond girl for the evening, Olga Virginiawitz. She had on a black sleeveless dress and black highheels. Really, I don't think the Alamo drafthouse had seen anything quite like it for a while. We could see the ex-pats much further down in the line, pretty obvious really, not many others waving a Union Jack. We managed to get seats together which was fun.

After the film was over I had to drop Olga off and run, or so I thought. I had a ticket for the final Alejandro Escovado performance of the year at Atones. It was doors open at 9pm for a 10pm show. I was already wilting though, so I decided on a detour to Whole Foods World HQ for ice cream(sugar....)

I got parked downtown and walked over to Antones, turns out Escovado and band wouldn't be on until 11:30pm. Somehow I knew I wouldn't enjoy it as much now, too tired. That wasn't the case though. Escovdo and the band were on great form, they did most of the numbers from Real Animal including my favorite, Sister Lost Soul. The also did a few pick-up numbers, obvisouly unrehersed, including a reggae number.

Whats great was Escovado was obviously having a good time, sadly as the clock approached 1am they were not finished, but I was.
