Private Party

Big show Saturday night at the Oakley Lindsay Center. Let's just say Web Warriors will be out in force. It's a private party and you'll need an invite, but it will be fun playing for friends both old and new.

We'll play a few Funions songs and hopefully everybody can hoot and holler with the rest. If you are an 80s child, blues fan or rock guy you'll be entertained, I hope.

Practice tomorrow night, setup Friday. We are playing with our friends Fielder, and it should be fun.

A little leery of the dreaded OLC acoustics, I've heard horror stories about the place. It will be divided in half so that should help quite a bit.

On the iPod library right now - "Walls" by Yes off the very underrated Talk album.

It will be nice when the OLC can get the new acoustic system into the hall. They've got the analysis and the guy is doing the design. Of course then they'll have to find the money to buy and install it.

Still, something that is definitely coming and for which it is definitely worth waiting.

Nick Saban is coming to the party and he has pledged $4m to the new sound system.

He still lost to Marilyn Monroe.

Also, he'll have to sing "Hail To The Victors" to get in.

I GOT A LITTLE CHANGE IN MY POCKET GOIN' JING-A-LING-A-LING
WANTS TO CALL YOU ON THE TELEPHONE BABY, A-GIVE YOU A RING
BUT EACH TIME WE TALK, I GET THE SAME OLD THING
ALWAYS NO HUGG-EE NO KISS-EE UNTIL I GET A WEDDIN' RING
MY HONEY MY BABY, DON'T PUT MY LOVE UPON NO SHELF
SHE SAID DON'T HAND ME NO LINES AND KEEP YOUR HANDS TO YOURSELF

I'm hurt I wasn't invited. I'd have come and asked all the hard questions..."Can you play 'Smoke on the Water'? How about something by Beethoven? Know any opera?" And then there would have been an in-depth report on Sunday morning news on WTAD!

:)

Have a great time, y'all!

Pravo,

Make you a deal here .... stroll on over to the party (the streets in downtown Quincy are safe, you know) and tell em who you are and that we've invited you.

In exchange, you must promise to blog more often.

Let's hope the eye doctor of doom can still see after suffering "retinal burn" last night ....

Rocky Cola is going to be in the house. He might be just as tired from being in the gym as me ....

Alas, I could not make it. :(

This fiancee stuff is...well, heck. I had a good time with her. Sorry. :)

I trust it went well, though.

Will keep my promise to blog more frequently anyway.
