Rode down to the Zoo bar festivities Saturday night once the little one was tucked away in bed. Had a great time solo, actually. I was impressed with the event all the way around. No waiting in lines -- $10 entry was a bargain for the entertainment, beer was cheap ($3) and the whole place had a nice party vibe. The weather couldn't have been better. It was one of those nights where I was proud to live in Lincoln -- it had the feel of a big city event, but had the small-town friendlyness thing going on as well.

I rocked out to E.C. Scott and the Self Righteous Brothers. E.C. Scott was my favorite of the two -- she belted out a number of great blues tunes as well as danceable doo-boppy melodies (whatever that means). She did a killer funky rendition of Peter Gabriel's Sledgehammer, which was my favorite of the night. You really had to be there to explain the Self Righteous Brothers. I had not seen them before, so I was highly amused and entertained, to say the least.

The evening was capped off with a trail ride home through the dark.

I was there. The Self-Righteous Brothers was born in my bedroom... I should probably clarify.

Sonny Self-Righteous was my roommate back in the day. Mister Self-Righteous was our homeless minstrel that would pass out on our couches. While I went to class and toiled away at work, Mister Self-Righteous would make up silly songs on the four-track in my room. I'd get home with mustard trowel sayings and little doggy lyrics... Then they got tuxedos and the rest was history.

Anyways, a-doodle doodle doo.

(you can borrow my cd is you want to hear it sometime.)

Which one was Sonny? (with/without hair). They looked like they were having a great time.

I'll take you up on the CD offer -- although I imagine they're the kind of band that thrives on live shows.

Where were you at? I was up front gettin' my groove on.

Oh... I'll tell you more about my Saturday night on the next ride.

In the meantime...

Is that the group you played guitar with waaaay back when, Gravy?

gravy said...

No nicol... I was no-self ideen way before my brothers became self-righteous.
