I’m Going To See the Gentle Readers

It is true, dear friends. This weekend we will be going to Eddie’s Attic in Decatur GA to see the beloved band of the EGC theme song, the Gentle Readers. They’ll be “opening up” for the Susi French Connection. I quote the word because basically almost all of the members of the Gentle Readers are in the Susi French Connection, so where one band ends and the other begins is fuzzy.

Nonetheless, we are looking forward to an evening of wonderful music, both the fantastic Gentle Readers originals composed by my close personal acquaintance Lee Cuthbert, and also the cheezy and rocking 70′s covers of the Susi French Connection. It was at a previous SFC show that I realized that although I hadn’t heard the song in at least a decade, I still remembered every word – chorus and verses – of ABBA’s “Waterloo.”

It is guaranteed to be a good time. We’re going to the late show on Saturday night. If you are around the 404/678/770 area and you need to soft rock out, come hang. There is an early show and a late show. I can’t wait.

    Hmmmm. Well, you just might see me there. I’m going to a long-anticipated film thing* at Eyedrum but should be done with that by 10:30pm, and if feeling randy enough I’ll head over to Eddie’s Attic. Not really my style of music, on either count, but that’s nothing that alcohol can’t fix.
