The show of the week

Assuming we're not all snowed in, will be Wee Willie, Little Cash Friday at The Hideaway. I don't think there's anything I can say about this show that hasn't been said by the man himself:

What do you get when you take a Virginia Redneck boy that likes Rock N Roll and Country, dress him up, send him to school mix a little booze and weed in there and watch him only grow to be 4 ft 6 inches tall ,,,,,,,,,The only known Little Persons tribute to Willie Nelson and Johnny Cash. Standing only 4 ft 6 inches and dressed to the "T" this Willie Nelson impersonator known as "WEE WILLIE" will serve your party or special event needs 100%.

Apparently it's one guy doing both, and he also used to be in Midget KISS. I'm really looking forward to this show because I haven't been to the Hideaway to see live music (but I have eaten some delicious ribs there).

Saturday's must-see show won't be quite as surreal. Annuals (I've been corrected -- there's no "the") and Greensboro's Tiger Bear Wolf are among those performing for night two of WKNC's Double-Barrel benefit at Kings. Night one features Old Ceremony, Mountain Goats and The Prayers and Tears of Arthur Digby Sellers, but I don't think that can top a midget dressed as Johnny Cash.

Please post a show review of Wee Willie! I know this guy personally but was unable to attend the show. :-(

I hate to say it, but Little Cash didn't live up to my expectations. I missed the Wee Willie part of the show, so maybe that part was better.
