South's Gon' Do It Again

I got a call from Big Jef Special this week.  He's cooking up something, something to be happening on Wednesdays at Will's South (5825 S. Orange Ave.) which means that there's a throw-down going on tonight.  Starts at 7 pm.  Jef's a troubadour; an American songwriter and some pretty heavy cats have been sitting in with him.  Is it a free-for-all or a house gig?  It's bubbling like lava right now but it hasn't blown yet. (I'd make a gator joke, but I'm tired.)

Country music at Will's South

The kind of people who get amped up about painting the town on Cinco de Mayo are amateurs. It's one of those ridiculous occasions that Americans have co-opted for hollow social purposes. In other words, an excuse for junior varsity partyers to get bombed in public. Screw that.

Consider yourself to be alternative-minded? Well, come on down to Will's South tonight. You should check out that fantastic dive anyway. But tonight, local country rock band Holidaysburg is playing and they're one of the promising young talents in the current wave of indie country in town. But they're also playing with a great band from Tampa called The Diviners. Like Uncle Tupelo? Then you're in for a treat.

Does Corona come in a can?
