Johnnie Cochran


My Johnnie killed
His brainwaves stilled-
Silenced in the night

A verse sewn shut by the ring of a bell
It's done, it's finished

Wednesday, April 20, 2011


Baker Family is performing in Mr Fest on April 30 at Tantra (217 West Hopkins Street, San Marcos, TX) at 12pm (that's in the day kiddos).

I post it up just like a player do

After 20 hours on the road, we arrived back in Austin with nourished hearts and weary bodies... 2 more bodies than before, actually; We kidnapped Page and Zach to come swim in our pool and play some Settlers of Catan.

Our 3 shows in North Carolina were wonderful. We feel very loved.

Click here for some fun photos from our Grey Eagle show in Asheville:

Thank you everybody for coming out and dancing with us!
