The Hot Club

THE HOT CLUB WHERE HEARTS ARE ON FIRE BUT IT’S NEVER TOO HOT FOR THE DEVIL MAY CARE 575 South Water Street, Prov. As a reminder, Mr. D.’s band Almond Joy will be playing at Ciara’s (moved to 678 Killingly St. in Johnston). They will be there on Friday, November 9 and they start playing about 8:30 PM. As Philippe and Jorge say, ‘Be there or be square.’ This square will be there. We were talking about smart phones. Buff Steve showed us his new Samsung Android. He added an app that gives you a flashlight. Right then Professor Pete pulled out his – an I Phone that came with the flashlight feature. So we had dueling flashlights! The Professor was heard to say, “Mine’s brighter than yours!” Jesse, the bass player, was raving about a new show on the Palladia channel – Late Night with Jools Holland on Thursdays at 10 PM. Jesse said Holland has 4 or 5 bands on and does an interview with a guest who also sometimes plays. I remembered Jools Holland having a music show some years back which was on the BBC channel. Question – which baseball league produces the most runs scored? I thought it had to be the American League because of the DH rule, since pitchers in the NL are usually an automatic out. Butt Steve, I mean Buff Steve, questioned me on this. A check shows that in 2012 there were 10,008 runs scored in the AL. There were 10,929 runs scored in the National League. The Buff One has game. The Hot Club TV was showing TMZ before the World Series began. I was startled to see the caption “Vaginas: Sometimes they bite your penis off.” I kid you not. Stephanie had a story for me – one of the Hot Club guys had a new ring that his male friend bought for him. His best friend. I told Stephanie that it was OK for a guy to show a little love to his male friends. In fact, as I get older, it is important to tell your friends, including your male buddies, that you love them. The Kirk Feather Trio will be playing at the Hot Club on Wednesday, November 7th from 5:30 to 8 PM. It will be a good relief from the Presidential election politicking. Stop by. ANSWER TO THE LAST QUIZ Who was it that started out with a band called the Stoners? Why Sly (Sylvester Stewart) and the Family Stone, of course. Once again no winner, but readers Wendy Johnson and the Wizard of the Web both e-mailed me with the correct answer. Sad to say, but Sly has fallen upon hard times and last I knew was a homeless person living in Los Angeles. THIS WEEK’S QUIZ OK boys and girls, another chance for a free drink, courtesy of yours truly. The question: What band has fans known as ‘Gearheads’?
