Halloween with Southern Culture on the Skids!!

Sunday night was GREAT! SCOTS played @ Zydeco to a fairly small crowd, but for me that made it even better. The band was able to interact with the crowd more and the feel of the show was just cooler to me. They played songs from the new CD and quite a bit of cool older stuff. One really cool cover they slipped in was Link Wray's "Rumble". I mentioned to Rick (the guitarist/singer) after the show that I loved that song and actually got to see Link play live before he passed. Rick told me about how cool it was to actually know Link and how he loved playing shows with him. This band truly understands how much their fans mean and I love that they are one of the few bands who actually LIKE their fans and enjoy talking with them after the show. As usual the band had members of the crowd get up on stage with them during various parts of the show and even had a married couple who dressed as Mexican Wrestlers have a contest on stage. The normal chicken was thrown at the crowd as well as Little Debbie snacks . I was dressed as an "extra from a 60's Biker flick" and was wearing a blonde wig with a real German helmet as part of my costume, apparently it stood out because Mary (the bass player) asked me during the show if it was real and told me after that I was her "focus" during the show (I guess she picks someone from the crowd to "focus" so that she doesn't just end up staring at the lights). After the show was over I stuck around and was able to get all the band members to autograph my CD (I don't usually do this but I REALLY love this band). They were all VERY approachable and happy to sign, the 2nd guitar player Tim was kinda staying in the background since he's not a "famous" part of the band, but he is a REAL member and I wanted him to sign as well. Dave the drummer is really cool (how many kick ass drummers do you know who stand up the whole time?), you can tell that Dave stays busy keeping stuff flowing for the band (plus he runs the Facebook page and I think the webpage too). Rick was great but he had a crowd the whole time and what can I say about Mary besides she's the greatest! She grabbed me from beside the speakers and drug me over to the middle of the floor because she said she "couldn't hear shit" by the speakers. We talked a few minutes and she gave me a hug and posed with me for a picture. All in all this may be the best time I've had on Halloween since I was a little kid. Thanks guys for making it such a great evening. The rest of y'all enjoy the pics and make plans to see the band when they get close to you. www.scots.com
