THE SKUNKS played a mini-show for the HAAM benefit & launch of the book, “Austin Chronicle Music Anthology.” Jon Dee Graham on guitar, me on bass & vocals, George Duron on drums. Here are 2 songs from our set, “St. James Infirmary Blues” + “Commit a Crime.” The latter song was made famous by Howlin’ Wolf. (speaking of the Mighty Wolf, see an important announcement below the second video window.)
and here’s the other song.
And speaking of Chester Arthur Burnett, the Howlin’ Wolf, we’ll be throwing another annual Howlin Wolf birthday tribute on Friday, June 10, at the Continental Club. This will be the 101st anniversary of his birth. We’re working on the lineup, but expect to hear all Wolf, all night, including my terrible self on bass & vocals, plus sets by Big Foot Chester, Greg Izor & the Box Kickers, Churchwood, and Eve & the Exiles (tentative) plus many special guests. Stay tuned for updates.
