Red Stick Ramblers at the Royal Theater in Danville, IN--incredible. They get better every time we see them. Which is apparently a lot; ran into the bass player, Eric Frey, outside the theater. We've met him a couple of times (including last August, when we hung out with him a bit at his neighborhood bar and our favorite Lafayette, LA, spot the Blue Moon Saloon). He was impressed we'd driven down from Buffalo for the show. Ron mentioned we were also planning to check them out again later this week in Knoxville for the WDVX Blue Plate Special, and Eric put us on the guest list for the show the night before. So now we're headed straight from Memphis (tomorrow and Monday) to Knoxville for the RSR show on Tuesday night. Too good an offer to pass up!
