Aliens in Terlingua? You’d be surprised.

Terlingua, Texas Americana Music – the Aliens gave a grounded performance but kinda laid down on the job, LOL.

Legiondary Jam 5 was a huge success.  Best attendance ever.  Excellent music – musicians from other places are starting to discover our little jam.

The pot-luck dinner was stunning:  etouffe’, bbq bratwurst, chili, BBQ from Bobby’s Blues and BBQ, and much, much, more.

I’ll post about that tomorrow.

The Rocky Top Alien Breeding Experiment’s set deserves a post of its own.

I provide the PA system for the show and run the sound.  As I was setting up Jim Keaveny’s microphone, he informed me he was going to perform laying down.


Then, Pablo Menudo decided that if Jim was going to play horizontally, then he would, too.  I guess he was showing solidarity with Jim.

Nick and Anna watched for a minute, laughed, and joined them.   It was a sight, especially seeing Nick cuddled up with his big ol’ bass on the floor.

They did actually perform a song.

Chris Baker was intrigued.  She walked up to the stage area, and joined the band.

After a while, several members of the audience were also laying down on the dance floor.

I’ll let the aliens leave comments if they want to tell us what the significance of the horizontal performance was.

I can tell you that it was hilarious.

Here are the pics and video.  Enjoy!   Continue reading “Aliens in Terlingua? You’d be surprised.”

Nick’s “Not Really Bluegrass” Jam.

Another source for Terlingua, Texas Americana music.

Local bass player and all around good guy, Nick Cooper, is hosting a “Not Really Bluegrass” jam on Saturdays, around 5:00.  It started out as a bluegrass jam, but, it turns out, hardly anybody down here can actually play bluegrass.

So, it’s morphed into a singer/songwriter kinda thing – everybody stands or sits in a circle – everybody sings and plays along.  Kinda like a ghost-town choir, and I mean that in a good way.

The current location is the boatyard, but it’s going to be floating to Bobby’s Blues and BBQ soon.

LaRoja and I attended last night, and had a blast.

There are a lot of musical opportunities in the Big Bend, but there’s nothing quite like this anywhere else.  Totally acoustic.  Great vibe.

Here are some pics.  Enjoy.j1 j16
