412/365 - Folklore
September 16, 2014. I had not been to Fireside Bowl since New Year's, when my band Squared Off ushered in 2014. I made it out tonight to see Blind Staggers perform the songs from an unreleased album at the last show of the drummer who played on that album. Also on the bill was plenty of other fabulous music from the punkish Fitness, the cerebral Mesico, and the rather intense Corporal, whose singer Michael Shannon is pictured here. As an actor, he's best known for his role in Boardwalk Empire and his role as General Zod in the recent Superman reboot. As they were getting ready to play, he played the theme to "Entertainment Tonight" on his guitar with no trace of a grin or even a raised eyebrow to see if anyone in the audience or onstage noticed. Not that there's anything funny about that, John Tesh.
