Annual January Wake
The annual New Year's Day wake for John Townes Van Zandt is today at the Old Quarter Acoustic Cafe in Galveston, TX. It is free and Townes songs are played live all day. Wrecks Bell will also be there and playing. If your within a hundred miles, you should drop by and have a cold one.

Not many artists get annual “play-in” wakes like that…especially ones that many folks never heard of. But thats Townes. Definitely on my bucket list!

Not within a hundred miles, but as I read this I was about two blocks away from the old Van Zandt family homestead. I snapped a few pics and held a minute of silent meditation - well, more like 30 seconds because it was cold outside.

This is historically significant as it is considered the oldest standing house in Fort Worth, Texas.
