First the important stuff. Last night, I finally gave my ancient punk jacket an outing after an absence of nearly 20 years.
Oh, and by the way, the grand occasion was Crosstown Lightnin's gig at the Colour House Theatre for the Abbey Mills Blues Festival.
Charles Shaar Murray, Buffalo Bill Smith, Marc Jefferies and special guest Dick Jude on drums (the Great Pete Miles is gigging in Poland) entertained us until the witching hour.
Here's Crosstown Lightnin' playing Muddy Waters' Can't Be Satisfied.
How I was reunited with my punk jacket here.
