    Is Dale leaving Austin, or did you just mean the last two CSS shows for the year?

    From his site: “I am moving to Baltimore, Md. to be near my kids. I thought long and hard about even making it public as I do not want any publicity that would hype this decision. It s simply a decision to spend more time with my family. No blow out shows are schedule, just the normal ones I always do, and it is not a retirement as much as it is a rest. Possibly a rest for good, but definitely a rest that is needed. I know all of you understand.”

    I think he’ll be probably back periodically (for SXSW and he’s supposed to shoot a movie that might be filmed here), but he won’t be living here and playing every week.
