The San Diego Kid’s First Texas Gunfight

I’ve played a lot of crazy gigs in my life and shared bills with some pretty unusual acts. But never — I repeat, never — have I played on the same bill as a Confederate-era re-enactment.

Yesterday, I played a set at the fair grounds in Johnson City, Texas, birthplace of Lyndon Baines Johnson, in the Texas Hill Country about an hour west of Austin.

We went on after the re-enactment and the San Diego Kid (that would be me) saw his first Texas gunfight.

Texans are known for their hospitality and the folks in Johnson City sure didn’t disappoint. They fed us as part of our compensation.

Happy Sunday y’all!
