Crazy dancers - was NOLA Blues Fest
Sat Oct 13 18:36:15 EDT 2007
At a Sean Costello show a few months back some folks from New Hampshire
were in the juke. One guy kept doing a sort of handstand-kick routine
that looked like a mule kicking to me. At one point Sean jumped back
from the mic and later said he was worried about getting his teeth
At another show a rather buxom, barely dressed and very intoxicated
woman kept falling around the dance floor. Finally she ended up draped
backward over a monitor and made motions like she was about to take off
her clothes. One of our more prudish regulars went up and drug her off
the dance floor ... damn it.
I've seen some awfully goofy dancing, I wonder how the musicians can
keep from cracking up laughing at times. Maybe because they've seen it
all too often. Watching someone acting goofy on the dance floor is one
thing, the one that gets me are the extremely serious "I just came from
my Arthur Murry class" types. You can almost see them counting steps.
