This week (while riddled with errors, my fault I'm afraid!) was another edge-of-your-seat thrillride as Charlie & I faced off new versus old for the 2nd week. I had New this week & probably have enough material for 2 more shows. I still had some fierce competition.

This week's tally was 4 to 5, with Charlie coming out on top! Darn. However 3 of these were results of rock-paper-scissors, cause I am so stubborn. She won all 3. Crap. I remain certain that John K Samson should have prevailed (the album is so timely!) especially because of the poor song choice (in my opinion) from TGA. However, Charles has sailor tattoos, so she sided with her pick. If it were High & Lonesome or Even Cowgirls Sing The Blues, I would have had to give it to her.
Damnit. I lost. We might have to make up humiliations for the loser - except that Charlie is embarrassed so easily & I am shameless.
Go see The Crooked Brothers & Mag 7's this Thursday at the WECC!!!
Go see Mad Caddies rock the Pyramid next Monday Nov 9th!!!
(Is it Nov already?)
