    I got to play Seth Kaufman’s nice white SG at that Plems/Mambo X show. Cool.

    Wish Proctor’s still hosted Mardi Gras events like that awesome one in 1999. Two of the greatest bands from Louisiana played that night. As for 2010, that was actually Barrence Whitfield and the Monkey Hips, not the Savages, if I’m recalling right, and KOF played one of its first gigs. Incredible show.

    Dead End were a great Troy Core band. (1989 entry)
