and i really don't want to eat my words, so let's just hope i don't. :) but in response to the previous post about the band, i'd assume that they're not broken up. i was at the halloween show and all seemed functional. usually they have a big following in their hometown, but it wasn't the case for this occasion. but you have to take into consideration that it WAS halloween nite and i'm sure that there were a lot of other things going on in b'ham and the surrounding areas and that probably cut the show's attendance down greatly. driving through the city just to get to zydeco (the venue) proved this completely. the streets were flooded with people, out doing their own thing.
we'll see how well they're doing come december, in time for the (hopefully!) traditional hometown show... at the nick...?
