After the Frothy Monkey "experience," we went to The Basement to see Victor Krauss.
Originally we'd talked about going to see The Fabuloso's (w/Raul Maulo from the Mavericks) at the Mercy Lounge, but opted out of that when we found out it was going to cost $15 each. After the cruise last week, we'd decided we didn't want to go overboard (no pun intended!) with spending over Labor Day weekend. The same reason we didn't go to see Sting and Annie Lennox last night...$80 is too much to pay when you're going to have to sit a long way away on the ground.
blah blah blah...
Instead we opted for $5 cover to see Victor Krauss (bassist for Lyle Lovett and Alison Krauss' brother...which I'm sure he gets tired of hearing!) It was good stuff. All instrumental and very groove oriented. Victor is an amazing bassist. As he played his upright, it looked like he and the instrument were all one unit. Very cool.
