Quickly: what’s better than a new post at Lost Live Dead? Very few things, but one of them might be a new post at Lost Live Dead about Texas. The Dead didn’t play Texas as much as you might think, and certainly not at a ratio commensurate to Texas’ size: only 29 times. (In comparison, they played 55 shows in New Jersey.) To make a long story short, Texas is too fucking big. But trust me on this one: you want to hear the long story. Go read.
