Pappy & Harriet's Pioneertown Palace on Friday & Saturday this weekend!

I find it incumbent upon me to relay the heartfelt message of our fellow soldiers in rock n' roll who lost a loved one. Their bassist, Kevin Garcia.

For that reason, they could not make it to Pappy's for their Saturday show. 

That is why we are playing on Saturday in their stead. 

And we will do our darnedest to offer him humble tribute, and honor the ones left behind.

A message from Grandaddy...

"There are no accurate words to express what we need to.
We are absolutely shattered to say that we lost our friend and band mate Kevin Garcia early this afternoon. He succumbed to the effects of a massive stroke.
We were all able to say goodbye to him and he was surrounded by his closest friends and family here in Modesto.
Kevin started playing with Grandaddy when he was fifteen. He was an actual angel. He navigated life with a grace, a generosity and a kindness that was utterly unique. And contagious. He is loved so deeply by so many.
Kevin was a proud father of two children, Jayden and Gavin. He is survived by his grandmother Joan, his parents Randy and Barbara (who let us practice at their house until 2001...and who are the best), his brothers Craig and Jeff and his wife Sondra.

We'll have more to say in the days ahead. Right now the four of us are grieving together. With great sadness and love, Grandaddy

There is a gofundme here to help with his family's coming expenses:"

Oh yeah,,, "Old Mexico. New Mexico, What's the difference?"

My colleague was on the phone trying to send a package to his dad in New Mexico.

And the woman on the other line said that they don't ship to Mexico.

And he said, "No, New Mexico"

And exasperated, she responded, "Old Mexico. New Mexico, What's the difference?"
