Filmed December 18, 2007 Limelight San Antonio, Texas

Matthew Fleeger is the operations manager of KRTU 91.7 FM in San Antonio, Texas. When Matthew contacted me about playing in San Antonio, I was enthusiastic. I had “guerrilla gigged” in that city one night in the late 1990’s—-that is, shown up at a concert unannounced and jumped the bill—-and felt that this miserable experience didn’t appropriately represent the home of the Alamo.

Fortunately, my scheduled show at the Limelight, San Antonio’s premier indie-rock venue, was more successful then the unscheduled show I had played in San Antonio ten years before. I chatted with Matthew and his wife—-who, like me, is from suburban Philadelphia—-about suburban Philadelphia high school sports. Later, I filmed Matthew below an enterprising painter’s “Great Dictators” series. Joseph Stalin’s mouth is visible in my video portrait.
