Freezing My Butt Off

Man it was a cold walk downtown last night.  I got a late start, so I had to cut my rounds down to one stop.  Into the Dancin Dog I went, shivering and stamping my feet, trying to warm them up.  I was greeted by my friend MXG.  He was very concerned that I may have gotten chilled to the bone......... Give Jim a shot and a beer, now that is music to my ears.  I opted for a Blue and a Tequila with a couple more through the night.  There is always  interesting groups of people to chat with........topics ranging from politics, guns, economy, music.........I took a bunch of videos last night, but the first video turned out the best........my equilibrium wavered as the night went on.  The guys playing last night were not the usual Dog Brothers.  These guys played some short cuts of songs, followed by full ones.......banging them out one after another.  Ya never knew what they were going to play next.

Being somewhat of a garage band percussionist myself I am intrigued by the drummers style of standing up while he plays . Last time I sw anything like that was watching a steel drum band in Trinidad. !! Neat .
