They're having Mardi Gras in Galveston...I went down there last night with the Pee Wee Bowen Band and played Club 21 downtown from 9:30-1:30 in a jam-packed, dancing mass of humanity. Pee Wee is a great guy and his band rocks the joint. I got to be good buddies with the horn section, who took me in like family. Big band, with a big sound. Earlier yesterday, the Citykings played at the end of the St. Arnold's Brewery beer...a couple of hundred people showed up. We performed the entire album live, and came back a few minutes later and did our club set, and the place was jumping. I ended up playing 3 full gigs with 2 bands in 3 cities in 24 hours. I got in at 3:45 this morning...I was seeing double. Fell asleep sitting here at the computer and spilled my drink in my lap. Gonna have to back off on the multiple bands and gigs until I can be sure I'll live through all of it...but the St. Arnold's gig was first, me and Willie (he's our sound man) walked in and went "What the..." We thought it was going to kinda suck...I mean, it's a real brewery...what are WE doing in here? Next thing you know, there's a big crowd of people in there and they came to see US...this was all Scott's doin's...we played and they jumped...the brewery guys loved us, too. They told us we were the best band they ever had in there because we weren't too loud (we were VERY careful with that situation...concrete floors and stainless steel walls) and we played and sounded great (Willie's summary). We tried to force Willie to take money ($50) for running our sound and getting us a decent mix but he wouldn't take any money from us because I take him to and from all Shakedown and Freedom River gigs...Willie's a great guy...anyway, Club 21 reminded me of Dangerous Bill's Cafe Noir. I have the Sex, Drags & Rock 'n Roll sticker on my keyboard for all to is good...WC1
