Steve Earle

Globe and Mail: What chapter are you in now?

Steve Earle: Maybe it's the third one. This is my 14th studio album. The last five years, since I moved to New York, I feel at home for the first time in my life. I'm 56. It takes living in a place where I can see any movie or see live theatre or see great works of art, and have hundreds of choices in those areas. I need that stimulation now to write.

We continue to track Steve Earle's current trip across the country that will eventually see him back home playing shows at Music Hall of Williamsburg and Town Hall (tickets). Thursday night he played the Paramount Theater in Austin. A set of pictures from that show continues below...

his character in treme was annoying but not to the point where they needed to shoot him in the face

7:53... you are an awful human being.

Seems that about 1998 Steve had a majora spider lay eggs in his inner ear. The eggs hatched and the tiny spiders made their way around his body. This in turn caused what is known as spider bloat.

"7:53... you are an awful human being."

I laughed. Then again I'm more inclined to shoot people in the face who use phrases like "you are an awful human being."

7:53, I disagree. My favorite part of Treme was when he was shot in the face. I hate this guy. He annoys me on Brooklyn Vegan, The Wire, and on Treme. Fuck this guy.

Maybe he can't act, but this guy is so politically insightful. War and racism are bad. I think he might even be critical of capitalism. Dig on that, kids. Trying wrapping your head around that knowledge.

He's a political geeeenius. Him and Janeane Garofalo would make wicked smart babies.

Ain't that Bubbles' sponsor?

Yes, 1:35. I, of course, meant wicked smart hairy babies.

Duh. I meant 4:10. I was no wicked smart hairy baby, obviously. I was subjected to hygiene and the capitalisms.

A political geeeenius? No. Janeane Garofalo? a smelly entitled trust fund twat. Wicked smart hairy babies? Wow, there really is no hope for this generation, is there?

Sorry, but Janeane Garofalo is a smelly entitled trust fund heroin addict twat. Sorry for mischaracterizing her before.

Someone here doesn't get sarcasm.

Isn't the Paramount a great performance space?? Some of my favorite concerts and performances I've ever seen have come through there.
