"A prophet is not without honor except in his own town, among his relatives and in his own home."
Stegall, lead singer of The Hormones, recently performed in his home town of Corpus Christi at Boozer's Rock Bar to almost zero audience, then followed that up in front of almost no one at a dive in Harlingen. One would think Tim's relatives, ex-wives, former school mates and baby mamas would have given the punkers at least a quorum.
Mr. Stegall complained on Facebook:
"Not a lot of our regulars showed up in either Corpus Christi or Harlingen this weekend. But we had fun. Gonna be a while before we see you again. Halfway back to Austin now. Ciao."
As one of a dozen or so who braved the Kraken Lounge last month to witness Stegall and Company rock out, I didn't realize when the punker said "see you next month" he meant Corpus or Harlingen.
Maybe Brownsville isn't punk enough.
