Two hours of madness with Mr. Eck and Wild Bill of The Ramblin' Jugstompers. We were supposed to have the entire band in to play next Friday and then I realizied I wasn't going to be here next Friday. They will come back in full force soon. Played a mess of stuff from their upcoming CD Crooked Songs, Live at Cafe Lena. And they each brought an armful of CDs and called out tunes for two hours, when we weren't talking about stupid stuff. Fun fun fun.
