Weekend party favors

I had a lazy weekend that stupidly included golfing in Sunday's 101 degree heat, but I did manage to catch some rock. These videos are from two parties honoring some folks you know if you hang out at Slim's a lot.

The first one, from Friday's birthday party for Slim's bartender Olivia, is the Infamous Sugar doing a very special cover song. I really wish I'd gotten video of Suge's new song, "Coke Zero," about, in his words, the sorry state of cocaine in this town. That was clearly the crowd favorite.

The second video is The Loners doing "Soulshaker" at Mike and Allie's wedding party on Sunday, also at Slim's. That was a really fun early show, made even more entertaining by watching Eddie Taylor's little girl dance wildly while watching her daddy play. I didn't capture any of it in this video, but it was very sweet to watch. She's a lucky little girl to grow up with such a cool dad.

On a related note, I did an interview with Eddie not too long ago, and will have it online soon. After doing the 5 questions thing for so long, it was good to sit down and have an in-depth conversation, but I'd forgotten what a pain it is to actually write the thing. Maybe I should just have a video podcast where I interview people, Charlie Rose-style.
