Went and saw the Asylum Street Spankers last night with some friends. What a totally kickass show that was. Having Guy Forsyth play with them helps get them back in touch with their bluesier side. It's worth the price of admission just to hear Guy and Christina Marrs sing "If You Want Me To Love You", which featured different (but still hilarious) lyrics from what's on the Nasty Novelties CD.
We were joined at our table by Ted Barlow and his fiancee Leslie. They were excellent table companions. There's no reserved seating at Rudyard's so we all arrived around 8 PM to ensure we could sit (wise decision - it was standing room only well before the band started playing at 10). We had plenty of time to enjoy chatting and getting acquainted. Turns out they live fairly close to me. Since Ginger is also my neighbor, I guess that means there's an Axis of Left-Leaning Bloggers here in the greater Heights area.
All in all, a rousingly good time. The Spankers rock. Chuck-Bob says check it out.
UPDATE: Here's a more thorough review of a Spankers concert, this one also featuring Guy Forsyth.Posted by Charles Kuffner on February 23, 2002 to Music | TrackBack
