Friday Night at The Redwood

3:02 PMDollie DeVille

Last Friday night we went to see Big Sandy at The Redwood in downtown LA. Sadly, I couldn't take any pictures because my camera batteries were dead. Poop. I am terrible blogger. But, I can still tell you about it! Just use your imagination. The Redwood is a dark little bar, and it was already packed by the time I got there at 9:30pm. They brought in a dancefloor for the night, and it was already being used. The openers for the night were The SideWynders with Captain Jeffrey on lap steel/washboard. The crowd always loves them and their western jazz music. They really got the crowd warmed up for the main event......the big man himself.......BIG SANDY! Yippy! What more can I say about Big Sandy that I have not said before? Maybe it was the beer, maybe it was the cute blonde Swedish girl I had to dance with.......but this might have been the best Friday night show ever! Everyone was having such a good time. The drinks were flowing, and when they were gone, we were crushing the beer cans with our girlish bare hands! The dancers were switching off partners left and right, when they could find room on the dancefloor, anyway. The girls and I were hooping and hollering as usual, and making a spectacle as always. Big Sandy did a few different songs this time, which keeps it interesting, because everyone already knows and loves all of his songs anyway. He did a ladies choice slow dance, and Sara asked me to dance even though she had her pick of all the guys there. How could I say no? She was one wicked slow dancer too. I definitely got the best dance of the night! he he he. Robert recognized our little Swedish Sara from overseas, and he gave her a shout-out during the set. What a sweet guy he is. He did a long set, and played until the lights came on and they kicked us out. I can't wait to see him again next weekend at Rhythm Rocker! See ya all there!
