About Last Night #6

Dueling banjos last night -- a good handful of bands at Skully's up against a Velvet Underground themed show at the Summit.  I tried my best to maximize, with so-so results.  I caught Deathly Fighter's dance-party set at Skully's.  Good Company played "Fat Bottomed Girls," so I suppose I can't complain too much.  Had to miss Horseshit and the Unholy 2, though.

I made it to the Summit for the later half of Moviola's set.  I liked their "I Can't Stand It."  The Summit was packed (as was Skully's).  A coney dog at Bourbon Street was more my speed between Moviola and Cheater Slicks (the main event).

The Slicks' "Sister Ray" made the evening's scrambling worthwhile.  Faithful to the original but with that added Shannon Bros. guitar magic.  Dana Hatch's vox and Mo Tucker-tribute drumming were spot on, too.  If there's a recording out there, someone needs to make this into a one-sided LP.
