The Blues Walked In Our Town

Right after Whit and I moved here, we went and saw Rilo Kiley at this big club behind Fenway called Avalon. I'm pretty sure it closed the next day. Unbeknown to me, it has been refurbished to become a House of Blues chain. While it is nothing super special as most major cities have one now like a Hard Rock Cafe. Nevertheless, let's take a moment to pay respect to some of Belushi and Ackroyd's finest work. If you have never seen the movie....God help you. I have only been to the House of Blues once. It was the original in New Orleans, and I was 15....In town for a dental meeting with the parents, I hit Bourbon Street late night with "the men". Pretty sure I saw some tranis and was very confused. Sheryl Crow was playing there, and I had a minor crush on her in her "All I wanna do" days. Dr. Felts and my dad pretty much lobbied with the bouncer to get me in the door even asking me to instantly grow a mustache. We got inside but did not stay. I did get an all black T-shirt that resembles the picture above. Bloc Party is playing there when it opens next month.

Whit, you wanna go? Me neither.....
