Missing out on Roky

RECEIVED Tue., Aug. 23, 2005

Editor,
    All right, folks, I'm gonna have to give y'all some shit here. While a historical fluff piece has its merits [“The 14th Floor,” Music, Aug. 12], as y'all were busy writing that, South Austin was reporting a 13-point earthquake. Many of the very musicians mentioned in your article were busy making more history, but where were you?
    And, as the birthday boy [Roky Erickson] took the stage, there was a universal meltdown, the Earth's core was revealed, and rock & roll came pouring out.
    OK, done bitchin'. Now to taunt you. Set list [Aug. 6]:
    It's a Cold Night for Alligators
    White Faces
    The Interpreter
    The Beast Is Coming
    Bermuda
    Splash 1
    Creature With the Atom Brain
    Starry Eyes
    Two-Headed Dog
    You're Gonna Miss Me
    I Walked With the Zombie
    Happy Birthday Roky
Peace now,
Glen B. Svendrowski
