“You can’t pay rent making whales.” -Jim Ward
Sleepercar performed this weekend at the Plaza Theatre Annex. The band played for two hours, over 25 songs, no breaks, just some solos. All really beautiful stuff. And the entire time, I was fixated on the two green whales hanging above the stage. Jim Ward gave props to the artist that created them, a student named Ivan Salcedo (need to verify spelling) from UTEP. Salcedo wasn’t at the concert because he was at G2 slinging drinks because making whales doesn’t pay the rent.
I’ll find out how much for the whales, and together El Paso, let’s prove Jim wrong. Let’s help someone pay rent by purchasing the whales they create. I’ll get back to you.
