Went to a club last night to hear a group called the Mojo Men play. The bar/club is called "Stout", and it has certain trappings of an Irish pub.
For years, it was a club called "Poor David's Pub" (which has since relocated to a larger space in a trendier area). As Poor David's, I heard many fabulous acts/artists perform there, including (but not limited to):
- Richard Thompson
- Leo Kottke
- John Fahey
- John Cale
- Ashley Hutchings and Robin Williamson
- Bo Diddley
- Townes Van Zandt
- John Renbourn
- Jorma Kaukonen and Jack Casady (Hot Tuna)
- Dan Hicks (and his Hot Licks)
It was their bass player, Marcus Baker.
He is my wife's brother, the one who was hit by a red-light runner about two months ago. After a month in ICU, we were told he probably wouldn't live. The doctor was wrong.
Ask me why.
