    losing Carter was devestating to all of us who knew him. Sarah nailed his personality, his persona…perfectly.

    Sarah never ceases to amaze me. Good job! (I have to write it here because her blog doesn’t accept comments)

    I was out of the state when Carter died, so I was blissfully ignorant of everything that was going on in Dallas during my absence. When I got back, the news hit me like air being sucked out of a room — rarely have I been so shocked. The more I learn about Carter, the more I realize how important he was to the city, to his friends, and to music in general.

    The show last night at Dada was amazing, especially Danny Balis’ short set. Playing Carter’s guitar, he covered a Townes Van Zandt song, played a few new ones he’d written, and finished with a song from Carter’s solo album, which I think someone said would be coming out around January. Everyone crowded around the stage and kept quiet. The songs were beautiful and so was the moment. It was a sad but happy night.

    Good on ya Danny, Salim Nourallah, Treys Carmichael and Johnson, Ward Williams, Dave Little, Kenny Withrow and Scott Johnson, Glen Reynolds, Rahim Quazi, John Dufilho, and everyone else that played.
