Saint Solitude and The Wigg Report
We (Christine and Stephen) went out on our “Bike Friday Family Tandem” Friday night. It was a trip! Christine was the “captain” or in the front and Stephen had the pleasure of holding on for dear life in the back. Needless to say, the night got more and more interesting as it got later. First stop, Broad Street Cafe. Just don’t take that corner too quick! Whoops, Stephen just fell off! Are you OK? Yes, apparently he is as he is doubled over crying laughing. So back to the Pizza, Hoppyum beer and Calamari…..yum…but we also enjoyed two guitar players up on stage…one who may have been visiting another planet that night.. oh well. that was kind of our plan too…so Second stop, The Green Room….more local beer thanks to Duck Rabbit Stout! The place was packed, all pool tables and shuffle board tables full but we were content people watching from the bar and chatting with the friendly bar tender. But cant stay because we have to ride that bike! So third stop, La Salamandra for a Craig Powell house show….in the restaurant. Here tonight are 2 out of town bands. We saw Total Slacker from Brooklyn -which they were not…total slackers that is. We still have one song “you have to love yourself” stuck in our minds. One look at these skinny 3 some and you would not believe the heavy wall of sound they could produce ! My neck still hurts from rocking out! We totally dug this band….hope they come back. It’s late and our balance is starting to come into question……time to go.
Back on the bike, up and down hills, crashing into the yard and another night done!
Stay tuned because we are coming up with a way to let others experience a Wigg ride.
Since Saturday we have been seeing folks walking around in a daze! The show at Pinhook left behind some carnage (hangovers).
Special thanks to those who shouted out lyrics, requested songs and shared something with the crowd.
Brainbows ripped The Pinhook up. They have an amazing energy that really knocks people back on their heels. I saw some heads shaking which is suprinsingly enough, a hard task to accomplish. We hope to play with them again soon…real soon! What a great band.
Free Electric State also got some hips swiveling in the crowd and a light show that added to the swirly, groove they had going on. I heard one person state they may have had an out of body experience.
We ate at Salamandra last night. One of my favorite spots to eat in all of Durham! Manuel, the owner was saying how much he loves having The Layabout shows at the restaurant. He was super happy while talking about the shows. When I asked him how everything else was going he told us his wife almost died and she now has to receive dialysis twice a week. Obviously this is bad news for him and it will cost him a Sh*t load of money. So, I was thinking if you have gone to see a show there but not visited on another night or day, you should go. If you are vegetarian he has food for you, if you eat meat he has food for you. I do not think he has any vegan plates……buy a beer, or paleta (Popsicle) then.
Manuel is a great guy that seems to understand and embrace the Durham music community…….let’s pay him a visit and welcome him to the scene.
Hillsborough road in Durham….go check it out eat and drink!
