With a number of southern states having to cope with the immediate effects of the BP oil crisis (though, like slow moving oil, it will eventually spread to all of us in its impact), it seems appropriate to dedicate this week’s music thread to our friends in The South. Whether it’s Southern artists, songs about The South, music that comes from The South (jazz, blues, zydeco, country, etc), whatever songs have a connection, feel free to choose any at all.

Did I mention they’re coming to Montana in September? 😀
I actually changed my climbing schedule for this!
Cool Pepe Are you taking the family?
Yup, Kiddo has to wear earplugs.
Ahh the memories ….
I saw these guys in 99 right after the big Tornado… They were about the only event that didn’t cancell for that month and they donated all the proceeds to help people…
I’ve tried to figure out the band that’s going to Montana, but there are no clues.
Have a pity on people who cannot access youtube and tell me, please, pretty please with a cherry on top, what band it is that you are talking about?
Our neighbors with fast Internet were gone, but we didn’t feel it was right to log on and view the youtubes.
So, what band is coming to Montana that you are going to see and have your daughter wear ear-plugs?
The Black Crowes!
Kiddo is excited because it’s the first REAL rock concert I am letting her go to. It’s during the daytime and outdoors.
Dum, dum, dum – guitar riff and then dum-dum dum and then Baby baby – close my eyes – Love the Black Crowes!!!
Thank you for replying.
We don’t do concerts anymore, but we buy DVD concerts and watch them then.
We’re older, so what can we say?

I’m going to check EYE (s) again & see if it was just an HP glitch –
O/T : I hated wearing my badges at Huff (and didn’t remember the email associated with the moniker, to ask them to remove them) so I got a new moniker :
EYE EYE EYE – no badges – it just got banned – for leaving the very same types of posts that the 2-badge (ugh) LiseLives does –
