We’re just back from Seattle, WA. What an amazing city! We hear it doesn’t rain there all the time, but we’ve noticed it rains a lot when we’re there. It did clear up for 30 minutes one afternoon and we were able to see Mt. Ranier out of our hotel window. Pike’s Market on the waterfront featured an amazing collection of food, flowers, art, and live performances. There were artichokes with 8” stems and elephant garlic that just about dwarfed Ezra’s hand. Street performers filled the air with their music. One afternoon, we visited the Experience Music Project (EMP) and were blown away. The architecture of the museum is stunning. The EMP approaches the musical experience from so many different angles. They not only have fascinating historical presentations, but there is a major interactive portion that allows anybody to hold and play an instrument. If you haven’t been there, you should go! It’s right by the Space Needle.
Poor David’s Pub is celebrating its 30th anniversary. Trout Fishing in America has been playing together for 30 years. It is only fitting that we’re playing two shows there this week in Dallas. We have a kid’s show on Friday afternoon and a regular people’s show that night. On Saturday, we’re in Kingwood, TX where they will be having a giant hair party. We’ve seen people experience the hair party by themselves, but this is a massive celebration of party hair. You can find out more about this by checking their website listed on our calendar. Bring your very best party hair and leave your combs at home. After that, it’s Spring Break time for the Trout. Belize it or not, Ezra and his family are going to Belize to go scuba diving and fishing!Keith and Beth are staying closer to home in order to clean up after Mona, their new puppy. Keith plans on spending a lot of time in the garden where she can do less damage. She can even help fertilize it if she wants.
When we come back from Spring Break, the first thing we’re going to do is sing the National Anthem at a baseball game in Philadelphia. Keith is elated! It’s already beginning to feel like summer to him because Keith’s summer officially begins when spring training ends. Anyway, there’s a whole bunch of exciting dates coming up on our calendar. Get out of your houses and play ball. Then come out to see us.
