thanksgiving 09

D cosmos

"Somewhere, something incredible is waiting to be known." So says that space-age sage, Carl Sagan.

And we believe something incredible is waiting to be known tonight at the Clamdaddy jam. Bring your relatives and get into the Thanksgiving spirit with some of the most generous musicians we know. Also, who wants to cook tonight? Free.

Tomorrow we will be closed for family turkey/tofurkey time.

Friday we will be back with a vengeance. The Otone Brass Band plays at 7pm. Another great show to bring the inlaws to. As Aden Harrell of Otone Brass Band says, "if you start being thankful, I bet you'll be able to finish." Otone recently stole the show from Galactic at the Fox in Boulder. We knew they could. $8

After Otone at 9pm we have a showcase from Colorado Audio Group with solid local bands Stan Jones Band (blues pop) and Bobby Doran (sweet acoustic neo-soul). $5

Saturday we have Delphic Tone at 7:30, a very good, very young blues-rock band from Arvada. Then another local rock band takes the stage around 9pm, The Duke Street Kings. They will get you dancing. They always do. And after all that turkey/tofurkey, you'll need it. $5

How do you keep a turkey in suspense?

Tell you later.

Turkey in the Straw

As I was a-goin'
On down the road
With a tired team
And a heavy load
I cracked my whip
And the leader sprung
I says day-day
To the wagon tongue

Went out to milk
And I didn't know how
I milked the goat
Instead of the cow
A monkey sittin'
On a pile of straw
A-winkin' at
His mother-in-law

I came to the river
And I couldn't get across
So I paid five dollars
For a big bay hoss
Well, he wouldn't go ahead
And he wouldn't stand still
So he went up and down
Like an old saw mill

Did you ever go fishin'
On a warm summer day
When all the fish
Were swimmin' in the bay
With their hands in their pockets
And their pockets in their pants
Did you ever see a fishie
Do the Hootchy-Kootchy Dance?

Turkey in the straw
Turkey in the straw
Roll 'em up and twist 'em up
A high tuck a-haw
And hit 'em up a tune called
Turkey in the Straw
