nothing to see here, folks

Tonight was special: friends, music, booze at Jules Maes, home to Seattle's
oldest bar (the wooden thing from which drinks are served). On the bill tonight
was Porest and Neung Phak from San Francisco and Seattle's own Master
Musicians of Bukkake
. Alan Bishop sat in with Porest to do a darkly humorous
song and dance set about 21st century human slavery and black market adoption
rings (sounds pretty funny, right?). Neung Phak played Americanized morlam, a
very happy sound that got people moving and gave me a real spiritual lift somehow.
Bukkake won me over with their grinding guitars and tasteful use of fog.
