Roky Erickson update

Looks like my decision has been made for me. The Roky show is sold out.

Strangely, this makes me feel better. It's out of my hands, so I won't regret my decision.

Did see the documentary on him tonight. It was very good. I did know that he was sent to the psychiatric hospital for marijuana possession, but I didn't now that he'd already had a psychotic break and been diagnosed as schizophrenic before that point, or that he was originally sent to minimum-security hospitals but was sent to the high-security one because his girlfriend kept helping him escape to her place to drop acid. Also, Roky comes by his crazy naturally: his entire family is messed up beyond belief. Even the most outwardly stable-seeming of them, his youngest brother Sumner, is definitely damaged goods.

Had beer & snausages with a friend in the Mission afterwards. Then home and to bed.
