Oh Yes, It's Ladies Nite!

If you love the ladies and you love the flowers, you’re really gonna love Ladies Nite on Thursday, December 15 at the Continental Club.

To celebrate Lady Bird Johnson’s 93rd birthday this month, Hunter Darby (Wannabes, Diamond Smugglers, Dung Beatles) and I are putting on a Hoot Nite-style jamboree with lots of bands singing songs with the word “lady” in them. Expect to hear hits like “Lady” by Kenny Rogers, “Lady” by Styx, and, of course, “Lady” by the Little River Band.

All proceeds will benefit the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center. I suppose one of us should let them know that.

So far, we've got the Diamond Smugglers, the Texas Sapphires, the Fire Marshals of Bethlehem, the Rockland Eagles, Gretchen Phillips, and the Daylight Titans.

Although the TCB blurb in today’s Chron might imply Summer Breeze is playing, that is not the case. Instead, I’ll be belting out a few tunes with the DeadMotleySexMaidens, the live karaoke band helmed by my old Peenbeet comrade Chepo Peña. As always, the whole damn thing is subject to change.

Why are we doing this? I’m not entirely sure. Unlike most schemes hatched over pints at the Dog & Duck Pub, this one somehow sprouted legs.

TCB was fishing for some info last week, and I told him about Ladies Night. But I didn't give him any details in regards to who was involved besides you and Mr. Darby. Someone smoking crack?
