Wow its been a while since I have been able to punch characters into this box. I don't know what it is but something is always in the way of social networking now days.

Tons and Tons of cool stuff is going on at the coffeehouse these days, namely the smoothies that Hunt has created. Real fruit, fruit nectar, ice and love are all that's in there so its healthy I think and good so come on and get one.

The music here lately has been really great. Gunnar Backman, Enigma Machine with Doc Dixon, O'brother and Death on Two Wheels have been the outstanding shows as of late and man have their really been some moments in the basement. All that was withing a week and we are all pretty drained. The next show is going to be The Love Willows with Coleman Fox. Should be pretty great.

As always I have Neil Gaiman and Icelandic economic news... They are both bad this time.

Neil Gaiman's Father died yesterday morning and He has put himself out of commission from blogging and Twittering for the next little while to grieve and I don't blame him. That guy is so good to his fans. He basically doesn't stop letting us know every piece of his life and this time should be spent on himself and his family.

Iceland's fourth and final surviving bank, Straumur BurdarĂ¡s, was nationalized this week leaving the country in a state of non-capitalism. I wouldn't be surprised to see the euro make its way further west to that small island.

On a brighter note the S.C.A.A. (Specialty Coffee Association of America) will be holding its conference here in April and its going to be very educational and tasty for everyone involved. Tickets are $150 , I think, and you will get to drink the best coffee in the world all weekend! The Safehouse Family will be making the trip and you should to. Even if you don't know a mocha pot from tea strainer.

Customer Appreciation Night at Safehouse Coffee/The Storm Cellar

I think that we have the best customers in town and we want to show you just how much we love you...

With a KILLER FREE SHOW tonight!!

Our friends, Death on Two Wheels, are on their SXSW Tour right now and are pulling through town for one day, so they called last night and asked if we would do a show with them, Hymns, Ben Ratliff, and just maybe, The Bridges tonight!! Of course, we said no doubt, so tonight at no cost to you, we present them in their full rock glory!

We have a lot of shows here at the Storm Cellar, but doesn't mean that our goal is quantity. No, in fact, what we feel is the best course of action is to focus on the quality of the shows we put on. We really do appreciate all of you who come out, and this is the best way we could think of to show our deep thanks to you, so come out and enjoy a show that will soon be setting the stage of South by Southwest in Austin, Texas on fire!!

      With Sincere Gratitude,

                             Hunt, Jacob, and the whole Safehouse/Storm Cellar Staff
