Checking my email after a weekend of neglect, I found the following phrase in one of my Patty Griffin mailing list (sign on to the Mad Mission!) emails. Darcie Miner, a woman who is hugely active on the list, is also a musician and got picked to open for Patty in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania.
This is a big fucking deal, because Patty is fucking phenomenal live, and has been drawing really big crowds on her tour. For an up and coming musician, landing an opening slot like this is amazing. One of the reactions from a fellow mailing list member was:
“JESUS BREAK DANCING CHRIST!!!!”
I have got to find a way to work that phrase into my life somehow.
