Hayseed Dixie [Oct. 31st, 2003|02:34 pm]
Roy Janik
Despite some initial hitches, last night's Hayseed Dixie performance on Nummy Muffin was a dream come true. They were coming to the show at 7:00 straight from an in-store at Waterloo. At 7:00 they arrived, but couldn't find parking. Finally they found somethin' and came on and blew us away. Here are the mp3s of the songs:

You Shook Me All Night Long
Best Friend's Girlfriend
Poop in a Jar
Ellie Schaffer

And here's the whole show, including the interview and lots of Halloween songs:

The "interview" was mostly one-sided, as the lead singer John had a number of great stories/bits and just launched into them a mile a minute. It was really hard to tell how much of his personality was a put-on. I mean, he was authentic hillbilly, and his compatriots had a pedigree of famous musicians in their genes, but he also had a masters degree in philosophy from some high caliber private universities. Quite the interesting mix of brilliance and banality. I'll post pics as soon as I get them from Kareem.

The performance at the Continental Club was really good, too. They played buttloads of AC/DC, Kiss, traditional bluegrass done in-your-face rock style, and some original tunes.
