early October, ought eight

D tails,

Is my wig on straight?

Tonight, Thursday, Oct.3, Josh Queen is playing at 7 and then we have a screening of a movie called Suburban at 8:30pm. Suburban is a coming of age story about an artist moving from NY back to his hometown of Arvada, Colorado. Check out more info at $8.

This Friday we have TnT at 6pm and Duke Street Kings at 8:30pm. TnT stands for Taiko and Tunes and that is what it is, traditional Japanese Taiko drumming with a singer songwriter playing rhythmic guitar. Different, but it works. And then the Duke Street Kings are a classic rock dance band. $5

Saturday night begins with the charming Ragtime Bill on the upright grand at 5:30pm. Then around 8ish the Jagtones are back. We had a good time last time the Jagtones were in. They play the tunes you grew up with, and know how to get people on the dance floor. $6

Sunday we have baby boogie during the day. We'll have the football on the big screen every Sunday morning, so come watch the game and let the kids play and have pzza and beer, all at once. And of course Sunday night salsa is good for the soul.

Next Tuesday night we'll have the Presidential Debate on, 6pm-8:30pm. Come participate in democracy and cheer on your favorite candidate. This event will be sponsored by PeaceJam and we should have a good turn out. We hope you will join us. After the debate we'll have Damon Scott's newly formed Tuesday night groove jam.

In other news, our theme this year for Halloween is "Old School Halloween". Ghosts, goblins, ghouls, etc. We took this theme from a gift of halloween art from dpity. Come check it out and the more of his work at the D note too. He is definitely one of our very favorite artists ever. His works live in a universe unique to the artist and full of poetic narrative.

All our best,

D rail

Extra Credit: Yes, sometimes a wig. And a wishful thinking poem by D.H. Lawrence.

It ought to be lovely to be old
to be full of the peace that comes of experience
and wrinkled ripe fulfillment.

The wrinkled smile of completeness that follows a life
lived undaunted and unsoured with accepted lies
they would ripen like apples, and be scented like pippins
in their old age.

Soothing, old people should be, like apples
when one is tired of love.
Fragrant like yellowing leaves, and dim with the soft
stillness and satisfaction of autumn.

And a girl should say:
It must be wonderful to live and grow old.
Look at my mother, how rich and still she is! -

And a young man should think: By Jove
my father has faced all weathers, but it's been a life!
