It Ain't Easy Bein' Sleazy.

So it looks like my birthday is fast approaching. Luckily, there is a show that night! How appropriate that I ring in the big 26 with the blues.

Jon Harris and the Sin Hounds will be playing at Blind Willie's Thursday, December 29th. They'll be recording live, so you know it's going to be on, which it always is anyways. I have seen them a couple of times before and am quite the fan. They have many originals, but always seem to cover Whipping Post, which is a personal favorite of mine. I've also witnessed a Doors cover a couple of times, which goes to show you that the roots of Jon Harris' influences are in high taste and classic.

On stage, Jon is able to work the crowd with little movement. It's all in the emotion of his voice. He is able to work as an actor through his music, it's something you can feel in the way he sings. You can tell somewhere down the line that he's experienced all of the heartache he vocalizes, and if he hasn't, then he sure as hell has me fooled.

To top it off, the venue is your typical blues bar. Smoky air, red lights, and nasty bathrooms make for the full enjoyable blues experience. You're probably not working the next day because of the holiday, so get your ass in gear and go to Blind Willie's. Look for me. I'll be the drunk one.
