Hick'ry Hawkins at the Hideaway

Hick'ry Hawkins from Mann's World on Vimeo.

Hick'ry was great last night at the Hideaway. He's got Dave Quick, of TCB 56 playing guitar now, and Quick really wailed. Here's a post I did about TCB 56 and others at Elvisfest in January. Quick is the guy that I thought looked like Prince William. Seeing him a second time only confirmed that opinion.

The opening band left me cold. They essentially had one song and played it over and over, as fast as they could, as loud as they could. Even the covers all sounded like the same song.

Only got a couple of Hick'ry photos, and they didn't come out well. Neither did the video. I really need a new camera. Maybe I should set up a paypal account and make a call for donations on myspace. If everyone on my friends list donated $2, I'd be able to get a Canon Rebel, which I truly covet.

Looking forward to the big show downtown today, but not likely to get any photos. Last time I tried to get into one of the downtown shows with a camera, I was turned away. It's too bad because I'd really like to get some footage of Hobex and The Never. I love The Roosters as always, and am looking forward to Big City Reverie. Haven't seen them since Dive Bar in Dec. 2005!
