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.
