Thanks to everyone who made it out to the Roky Erickson signing at Sig’s. Special thanks to Jegar for all the support. The Hounds of Baskerville are on their way, folks! If you didn’t see them last night, do yourself a favor and check them out next time they are in Houston! Happy Birthday Roky!!

Roky Erickson & the Hounds of Baskerville will appear at the Continental club later that evening. Click on pic (photo by Jay Lee) to get your tickets!
Big thanks to Chris Gray for nifty piece “50 Rad Things Now on the Sig’s Lagoon Walls”. Pictured left is another item on our walls - Jimi Hendrix’s amp net from a 1968 show in Fort Worth. It’s next to the autographs of the band, and a matchbook from Hendrix. Barnard was personally handed the whole amp cover at the end of the show – Jimi Hendrix Experience, Soft Machine, & Moving Sidewalks. After a melee of peeps trying to pry it from his clutches, he was left with a piece twice as big as what is displayed with other Hendrix items/posters. He gave the other piece to his friend for helping fend off the mayhem. What a pal!! Click on the Hendrix amp pic to link to the “50 Rad Things” story.

The “Sundance-ification” of Sig’s has begun. Thousands of staples have found a new home – holding up the legacy of Sundance Records which closed its doors on April 1st, 2012. Barnarded you ask? Sundance owner – Robert Barnard – is the man behind the work – 40+ years of music and pop culture…and still more to come. Come check it out!
