Awesome fun at our Meridian, MS show.
First, George introduced us to all kinds of crazy Mexican candy. Why a Nicaraguan knows so much about Mexican candy we don't know. We had this tamarind paste that was pre-stuck to a spoon, and some brown goo in a bag and all of it was salty. But my question is why the heck would somebody put red pepper into a squeeze tube and call it candy? Or those dried shrimp in a bag? Who does this? I demand names.
In the middle there is Delila, who came with us for merchandising. She's got good road-trip stories. Or at least good stories to tell on a road-trip. Also stories about tripping in the road. But no stories about tripping while driving on the road. Because that would be a DUI.Our adventure took us to Meridian Underground Music, a super-cool joint dedicated to hippie paraphenalia, music, and musical instruments. It's owned by a cool chap named Wayne Williams, who puts on shows there twice a month. Check them out at Myspace.com/meridianunderground
Here's the headliner, Baak Gwai, who were loud and fast and butt-kicking. Real troopers about the cold.

And here we have the Dark Sundays, an awesome folk-indie outift. Props to singer Logan, who has the stones to play a pink guitar. And to his girlfriend Darcy who let Jack borrow her coat.
