Friday Night May 26: Stone Face Tavern

Sweet ride: A Mexican State Police Crown Vickie P-71 Police Interceptor.

Don't miss our Friday night show at the Stone Face, because the SFT is only having live music on Friday nights this summer. The show satrts at 9:00 pm. The Stone Face is located just north of Paseo del Norte on San Pedro Blvd.

Last night's gig at Joker's went pretty well. The staff and management were super cool and the crowd seemed to like the music even though I think they are used to hearing Top 40 rock bands. It looks like Joker's is going to be a good place to throw down some roots with our weekly Wednesday night Jam. The first session is June 7.

Gigs this week

Thursday night May 25 at Joker's Pub.
It's been a couple of years since our last gig at Joker's, but it won't be nearly as long a wait for our next one. Starting on June 7 The P.Tails are going to host a Blues Jam at Joker's every Wedneday night.
Friday night May 26 at The Stone Face.
Sunday May 28 at the Madrid Ball Park in Madrid, NM.
The Sunday show is an all afternoon Blues Fest featuring The Hoo Doos and The P.Tails. The Madrid event is the longest running Blues Music Festival in the state. For many years it was run by the New Mexico Jazz Workshop, but now the town of Madrid hosts the event. Bring your kids and a cooler. Here's a picture of Darin from the 2004 Madrid festival.

We Crawled

Here's a photo of my favorite drummer getting after it at the SFT last Friday night.
Saturday night we had a great time at the Spring Crawl. It's always nice to see so many people out supporting local live music. The Tails from the Crypt had a great set and then I and I hung out to listen to Mystic Vision. If you ever get a chance to see MV, don't pass it up. They are a real band that plays with true passion and commitment to the music.
