Boogaloo Joe Jones - "Brown Bag"

Um...too hot.

Looking for a good, music related movie to kill an evening? I got one for ya.

From German filmmaker Fatih Akim comes last year's Soul Kitchen. It is AWESOME and funny. Give it a check out. Oh, it is on Netflix too!

March dates you might be interested in?


The good folks at River Gods have given me my own night-once a month-starting in March. My first Classic Soul Night will be Thursday, March 10th, from 9 p.m. to 1 a.m. Also, I will be doing American Primitive Night with Jason Beek and P.J. Porter on March 23rd. See ya there? Buy me a beer? Buy you one? I should add that the great Doug Gesler will be doing the American Primitive Night on the should go. I will be there, for sure, to see what vinyl he found during his vacation to Costa Rica!

Be well.
