A Night Out in Brownsville
After much deliberation we ended up at Jokers, where neither one of us had been to before. There we found the LOUDEST band in the world. They had a good sound, just that is was LOUD. One couldn't even talk without screaming directly into one's ear drum...and no, at 21 and 23, I don't think we are old gals just yet...but if the sound was a bit lower...I could honestly say that I might have enjoyed the music better and maybe have understood the lyrics. The drummer reminded me of someone I had a crush on in college and the lead singer was wearing a little tie...I mean little...it was kinda cute. They had a sort of a Café Tacuba-ish look but their music style was a bit more punk and metal - ish....okay...LOUD....so they were interesting to just look at. And yes, we finally got our drinks even though that took long and Lizard did not get what she wanted...they only had Zimas, beer and the rest...so we both had two zinfandels...hmmmm...wine good in tummy and healthier too!
After a few songs, that loud punk band was replaced by a rap group...does that sound right? rap group?? rappers?..I don't know if that is the correct terminology...but it was a group of 3 guys and they are rapping and quasi-singing...they also had a DJ so maybe it is fair to say a 4 guy group...rap band? hip-hop group? Lizard and I were suprised...neither one of us had ever seen a rap group perform live and we kind of thought they were going to do a comdey skit or musical spoof. Okay now that I recall I once saw Run-DMC at Louie's Backyard during Spring Break like 4 years ago...oh yeah once at a college talent show....okay I have seen rappers performed...diss the whole I have never seen rappers perform live. So the three guys performed pretty well. They were still a bit loud, so now we assumed the loudness was a matter of the audio set-up at Jokers. There was the "nerdy" rapper (who Lizard had her eyes on)...the "guy who wants to grab his crotch but won't but you know he wants to" rapper and the "psuedo-metrosexual" rapper...yup they did okay. :)
So it was a simple night out...and despite an audio incovenience it was good to see some live music and just chill.
