So, tonight kicks off the Vagabond Saints Society’s annual summer spectacular.This year, the theme is the Talking Heads. Specifically, they’re doing the “new special edition” of Stop Making Sense, but that’s the headliner section of the show. The shows will start with non-SMS Talking Heads songs and then thrown in to the main course.
The opening show, tonight, is happening at the “Official Music Sponsor of The Less Desirables,” The Garage. The doors open at 8pm and the show starts at 9pm. Let’s be honest, we rarely ever start on time but you’ll still want to get there early because there’s always the threat of it selling out and they will cut admissions when that happens.
The regular and recurring folks will be performing, I’m sure. I haven’t seen the full list, so I can’t give any details. I just know that I’m performing. I’m doing three songs and all of them are pretty well known TH songs and two of them are numbers 1 & 2 on the Ultimate Classic Rock website’s “top 10 Talking Heads songs” list and are consistently top 5 on most other lists I saw. I don’t know how I pulled that off, but okay! It’s some tough stuff, too. Not the range or anything but the timing. I didn’t get to rehearse with the band, so tonight is my rehearsal, let’s see how that goes.
The next two shows will be at Raylen Vineyards on July 16 and Summer on Liberty on August 13. I love doing all those shows but The Garage is our home. I am a huge fan of that establishment. So, again, come on out and enjoy some weird post-punk/new wavy goodness. Hear me sing about babies, houses, water and other nonsensical things, and have a good time!
Until tomorrow, same blog channel…
