Under overcast skies but perfect weather, and with Austin’s wild parrots chirping all around, a crowd of 75-100 gathered on Doug Sahm Hill last Friday afternoon at 4:44pm to witness the joining together of man and musician by the Monkees’ Michael Nesmith (scope “Circle Sky,” Feb. 18). Having met at Nez’s Videoranch installation at Austin Studios last year – happening again this year at SXSW, Tuesday, March 15 – onetime Saturday Night Live funnyman A. Whitney Brown read his vows to Carolyn Wonderland (“You are a force of nature and a mystery”), while the local firebrand sang hers. Nesmith quoted “Papa Gene’s Blues” in his ministerial duties as hometown musicos including Shelley King, Earl Poole Ball, Barbara K, Miss Lavelle White, Sarah Brown, Cindy Cashdollar, Van Wilks, and more looked on. Threadgill’s hosted the reception, where some attendees were still brushing off the nuptials’ celebratory hemp seeds.
