What I'm not going to see tonight

Younger Brother is the hipster of the family.  He picked up a copy of the local Austin "Whos playing where" paper, and found that Big Bad Voodoo Daddy was in town.  Those of you who have been living normal (non- Hep Cat) lives may have missed them when they came around in '96 or so.  They sound like '50's Big Band Swing:

I thought it might be fun to go hear the band.  Until I found out that it would cost us $200 to go hear the band.  Oops.

So tonight will be tragically un-hip.  Just as well, since the Zoot Suit is back at Camp Borepatch.

Off topic, but when I attempt to plug into
I get a blogspot logo with spinning gears. (Firefox 8 on Win7)

Just thought I'd let you know.

By the way, Squirrel Nut Zippers were pretty good in that same time frame.

But $200 buys a lot of CDs or MP3s...and I wouldn't have to deal with traffic or crowds.

I wonder if the promoters think of such things....

Like the Squirrel Nut Daddies too but $200 buys a lot of ammo (or a bottle of cheap-ass Chardonnay on the North Shore). Anyhow I like music but hate crowds, end of story.

Quizikle, IE8 will show it. It will complain about Blogger's "non-standard" HTML and then drop it back to something sane.

DirtCrashr, I like the Squirrel Nut Zippers, too. But not $200 worth.

Love swing music! Did you ever see the Loedogs when you were in Massachusetts?
Also Cherry Poppin Daddies are great, I defy anyone to sit still through "Zoot Suit Riot"!

That is "Lovedogs"

Laura said...

holy crap, 200??!? i mean, i always liked'em, but not *that* much.

Borepatch said...

Libertyman, I never caught the Lovedogs. Sounds like I would have liked them.

"Zoot Suit Riot" is awesome.

Laura, yeah that was my reaction.
