I Hate That New Wave Shit.

March 16, 2005

It was a good day for cabbies here in Austin. The guy who drove us from the airport to the hotel regaled us with tales of celebrity taxi encounters: “You haven’t lived until you’ve had a drunk Sandra Bullock and Julia Roberts’ sister in your cab.”
Last night we took a cab to the Salt Lick–really extravagant–$40 each way!–but worth it. We were driven by a guy named Leroy, who’s got a musician son living in Manhattan: “He’s gotten into jazz and blues, but he used to play that new wave shit. I hate that new wave shit.”
