rock OUT

Me and the wife went with Stev0 and Judy to have the tacos and see The Purple Valley at Castaways last night. Bluesy rock and roll and such, kind of a family band as I explain below. We know the drummer Curtis and lead guitar John and wouldn't miss them for anything. It is hard to beat the Castaways happy hour: 5:30-8 free music. I am a very early bird and totally dig an early night. They sounded fantastico, you can hear them a bit below :)
(Those are my boots, and that is my dog)

The Purple Valley live a couple years ago, same place, but with a slightly different lineup. Lead guitar and male vocals John, the dude who looks like Keith Richards, is a librarian and marathoner and grandfather. Keyboards is his wife, female vocalist Gina is her daughter and his step-daughter---I think that's how it all works :)

Penny always seems like she's either A. Getting ready to sneeze/snort or B. Ready to tell you a knock knock joke. Her cute little mouth is always open in pics. :)

Early shows are great. Especially when your parole officer insists on a 10 pm curfew.

I spy a BABB pin!
Also, I like that your comments tells me "HOLY CATS, YES!" it makes it all the more exciting to leave a comment.

Reminds me a bit of the band some friends have here. Also, I would not put it past you to have created that wee rat with his graffiti...
