Been under the weather for the past couple of days, (hence the tardiness of this post) but I was under the stars this past weekend at a funkifried venue in Kirkwood called Pullman Yards. A couple of guys bought a spot across the street from a dilapidated old freight yard and turned it into a indoor outdoor venue for music and arts. Very cool. Gentrification is starting to sniff around the corner and turn over some rocks on Rogers Street. Won’t be long now. I think they’ve got a great thing going there.

We gigged with Smokey’s Farmland Band. Those guys have a tight sound and flatpicker on guitar that can flat tear it up. Well worth spending an evening with, if you haven’t heard ’em. I hope we gig with those guys again sometime. We had a good crowd as you can see from the picture. Lotta kids. Always good to see the kids dancing.

Sunday We opened for a killer group outta Chicago called Cornmeal at Smith’s Olde Bar in Midtown Atlanta. We were a little (hell, who am I kidding…a lot) rusty on Saturday night, but we paired down our set list to a “power set” and we had one of our best shows ever. Funny how that works. No matter what we did Saturday night, we couldn’t quite get there, but Sunday was a different story. We had our game, and so did Cornmeal. I was wishing I could slip into a Friday night there because I would have stayed all night. They were fantastic. Check them out when you get a chance (see below)
