Blues Friends

Here's some more of our friends. There's "Pistol Pete" working out on my white P. Bass, and also a nice shot of underage guitar slinger Ryan McGarvey having a confab with his dad Pat at Brian's one night. Pete plays bass in Ryan's band. On top is a shot of Mark Goldston and his lovely wife Sonia, we need to get down to Roswell and drink with Mark again real soon. Remember that you can click on these images to see them in a larger size.


I've been taking photos of our friends when they show up at our gigs and now I'm gonna start posting some of them. In this batch there's a portrait of left handed guitar legend Joe Gagen, a photograph of legendary beauties Dee and Mary, and finally there's a shot Steve Whitman from the ABC sitting in on my old beat-up Fender Jazz Bass up at Willee's last Friday night. He played "Hip Shake", the one-chord boogie classic. As our friend Mikey Wright says it was: "all stinkin' and no thinkin". Fair warning: your photo might turn up here next!

Friday April 28 at the Stone Face Tavern

The Stone Face has discontinued live music on Saturday nights, so don't miss our Friday night show. The SFT is easy to find; it's on San Pedro Blvd. just a little north of the intersection of San Pedro and Paseo del Norte. Don't let the gargoyles scare you. Saturday night the P.Tails will be playing at the Spring Crawl downtown.

Alibi Spring Crawl, Saturday April 29

The Crawl is the biggest live local music event of the year. All of downtown is closed to vehicles and every theater, pub, nightclub, lounge, and bar features a series of short sets by local bands. Hundreds of bands play, and thousands of people descend on downtown to listen.
The P.Tails have played at just about every Crawl since the first one and we are very proud to be part of the 2006 event. The P.Tails will play an hour set on the outdoor stage at 10:00 pm.
Check out the Spring Crawl issue of the Alibi to see who else is playing where and when.
Here's an updated list of all the P.Tails gigs for the rest of April.
Friday April 21 Willee's in Santa Fe

This weekend: April 21 & 22

Finally, after three weeks of misery, the P.Tails will be back in action. Friday night will find us up in Satan Fe playing at Willee's Blues Club. Willee's is the only dedicated blues venue in all of New Mexico and it's one of our favorite places to play. Saturday night we'll be back in the Duke City to play at the Barley Room.

Double Booked!

Brian's booked two bands for this weekend, and of course only one can play, so the Tails from the Crypt got cancelled in favor of Albuquerque's hottest new Classic Rock band "Brian Freeze". The Freeze just happens to feature one of our ex-drummers on guitar, a multi-talented guy named "Uncle" Bobby Tourville.
The Tails hate not playing for three weeks in a row, but it's very nice to see Bobby T having some cool success with his new band.
Here's a few photos of Bobby that I took earlier this year when he came out to see the P.Tails and share a few brews and tales from the old days out on the road.
I haven't seen 'em yet, but I hear that Brain Freeze rocks; since you can't see the P.Tails this weekend, maybe you should check them out. I think I will.
