FOW @ Scaggs' Place--Great Show!

Trio on the right: special guest percussionists for "Hey Julie"

Man, TSG needed a dose of rock and roll, and the guys delivered tonight. Big time.There are advantages to being a fan of a "minor" band in venues like Slim's--it's fairly easy to get a spot up front if you get there early.

One of the best shows we've seen in a long time.  Mike Viola opened the show as he did a couple of years ago at the Cafe du Nord.  He and his band The Candy Butchers are local favorites.  He's a listen-worthy singer-songwriter with Wayne-esque lyrical tendencies. 

Hilite o' the nite: the Radiation Vibe/Do You Feel Like We Do/Twilight Zone/Breakup Song/Mad World/Carry On/Jet medley. Possible video clip to follow.
