Okay, so maybe it's not that bad, but check out Ramon's chilling rundown of all the talented musician-type people leaving Houston for other parts. Danny from The Jonx I knew about, of course, but Sabra Laval, too? Papermoons? I know I mentioned before that one-fifth of The Church of Philadelphia's now living in Uganda (he wins the award for longest escape route from this city); now Carrie Ann Buchanan's gone, too? Dang. Hopefully Young Mammals don't call it a day after Iram leaves...
What the hell's going on, y'all? People by the thousands are finally actually moving here (some from places with much more cohesive scenes than ours who might -- just maybe -- be looking for some good H-town music), and yet cool music-makers are still fleeing town? sigh. I mean, I know Seattle and Austin and all those other places are plenty nice to live in, but damn. From what I've seen of the state of the scene these past couple of years, I thought H-town's music climate was looking up; are things that bad? (Of course, that's assuming people aren't moving for Day Job/Family-type reasons, as Danny did, but y'know.) Is the rain of toads at hand?
