Bob Wire Fingers the Photographer
The Union Club has music on Fridays, only, for the summer. It's a 50% cut in good, solid local fare at that venue. It may be a good idea, because this old man has trouble closing the clubs two nights every weekend, but I don't like any cutback in live and local music.
Bob Wire was the featured act, last Friday, and he was romping. Tom Catmull has some strong competition in the danceability category, because when Wire fires the rockabilly, people want to dance. Russ Nassett has also led some lively sessions recently and belongs with this group. The club had a lot of top-notch local talent play over the winter. I'm sorry some of you missed it.
The club never charges a cover, and they have Moose Drool on tap. However, it is a smoking venue, and non-smokers should be warned. Milo's serves their menu until 10p, and their spaghetti and meat balls for $4.50 is a bargain.
Zeppo will be in the house this Friday. Be there at 9p, because the Union Club has music start the closest to advertised time of any local venue. Just ask a popular local combo, who started their first club performance late and had their monthly appearances canceled. Zeppo is one of my favorite bands, as my 12 loyal readers know. New readers can catch up with the older posts.
As I left Friday night, a very large penis made an appearance.
