night at Katies. BH from my class came by and we headed down to listen to some live music, I hadn’t been in about a month, the last time I was there they had some “comics” from the city come out to practice during the breaks. I had to put comics in quotes because mostly they just were vulgar and nasty. It was so bad (no one was laughing, every woman was embarrassed) that at one point I yelled out that it was time for some music. And thankfully, they stopped. I mentoned to Jim over at Lone Star Guitar that I wasn’t going back because of that. He in turn mentioned it to Bob and Katie, who had already pretty much decided not to have them back. Him talking to them helped them to make the final decision to tell them to hit the road. I told Jim that I really appreciated him doing that and that I’d be back, so, there I was.
And it was not only a good time, there was one guitarist there that was among the very best I’ve ever heard, period. Don’t know his name but he was playing an Ibanez JEM7. Wow, he was incredible, even did a little Eddie Van Halen fretboard playing. BH said it well: wow, that was relaxing and energizing at the same time!
There aren’t too many places where you can listen to good live music. That’s why I was so bummed out when the “comics” showed up. I wasn’t going to be around that type of nonsense. But the power of consumers still lives. Awesome.
