I played gigs in San Antonio and Houston on Friday and Saturday. I was sick, playing shows and driving all over the place. I spent Sunday sleeping and just laying in bed. Today, I'm going to the Dr. to find out what's going on. Anyway, I'll fill you in on everything on Friday's show.

They'll be playing a couple of SXSW shows on Monday, March 13th at Spider House and Sidewinder. Go to fragilerockband.com for more info. Emily and Ryan and I have a great conversation about how leader Brently Heilbron came up with the idea of an emo puppet band while going through a divorce, their songwriting process, their odd audition for "America's Got Talent", the real definition of "disco nap", serious improv, how Bowie would have loved them and much, much more.

Hello friends! I hope this episode finds you happy and healthy and on the path to finishing your Christmas shopping and starting your holiday plans. I have two presents purchased, so I have a lot of shopping to do. I'm not sure what to get people. I feel like I've been in my own head too much the last couple of weeks to really do some effective Christmas shopping. I need a drink.
My guest for episode 549 is the talented musician/actress, Arielle LaGuette! I happened to see Arielle a couple of weeks ago when she opened for my friend, Jaimee Harris at the One-2-One Bar it was just her and her ukulele and I was transported to another place and time. I just loved her voice and songs and choice of covers so i asked her to be on the show. She released her gorgeous self-titled, debut e.p. earlier this year. Arielle and I have a great conversation about being a theater nerd, picking up the ukulele, being a part of an improv troupe, she beat boxes, we play a Spice Girls song and much, much more!
