Kirby Warnock lived in Oak Cliff for 37 years, raising three children there. That’s where he crossed paths with Jimmie and Stevie Ray Vaughan. Now he lives out in the Big Bend area, on a ranch whose brand is the Circle Dash. He’ll be returning to Dallas March 23 for a screening of his new Vaughan brothers documentary at the Texas Theatre. Lay your eyes on the trailer for Jimmie & Stevie Ray Vaughan: Brothers in Blues:
In this episode of EarBurner, we got Kirby on the phone from his ranch and talked with him about why the documentary took so long to produce. Jimmie will attend the screening at the Texas Theatre, and Kirby gave us a bit of a tease about what folks might expect from the musician.
After we hung up with Kirby, Zac and I got into a discussion about the Morning News reporter who was fired for calling the mayor “bruh” on Twitter. Your enjoyment of said discussion will be enhanced if you first read this essay by Columbia prof John McWhorter, about White people saying “bruh.” (And, yes, we are aware of McWhorter’s controversial views on other topics.) Zac and I went on to share stories about getting punched in the face. We debated the difference between a brawl, a melee, and a fracas. And we learned why you should never use the term “paddy wagon.”
