Rumors of bars
It’s more than a rumor that underneath the happy-smiley exterior of the Saturday Farmers’ Market is the soul of a dark beast. By all means come attend this ritual dance, but watch the interactions on the east side. You cannot miss the gent with the trombone, who tap dances and sings the first part of a hundred classic tunes. He’s eccentric, kooky even, but he’s genuine and original. Problem is, some of the other folks don’t appreciate him as much and blast boom boxes and other modern contraptions that are totally inappropriate. Very bad juju. Let the old guy have his moment in the sun, jeez!
More than anything, what this town really needs is to help the abandoned Mind Games become an all-ages venue for bands. What a perfect spot! And while Moxie’s and the Catacombs have been doing a great job (hats off to Vanessa and Dustin), a dedicated location would really boost the local band scene.
And now that the Grateful Dead spin-off band The Other Ones is touring again, our local shrine of Deaddom, Stormy’s Off Broadway, is refocusing its attention on the matter at hand, which is an aggressive campaign to clone Jerry Garcia. Face it folks, we might never get a decent president elected, no matter what color his party or skin is. But cloning the great one all dressed in black is within our reach. Stop in for a drink and talk to Dean at Stormy’s for more details.
