I’m going to see the Edgar Winter Band and Johnny Winter tomorrow night here in Beaumont. These guys are from my home town (Port Arthur) and I don’t remember the last time they played here in southeast Texas . I don’t think I’ve ever seen them in concert, but I really don’t remember.
I missed Dwight Yoakum last week. He was in Beaumont but he was playing at Wild Bills on a Thursday night and it was Honky Tonk Seating. Honky Tonk Seating actually has nothing to do with sitting. In Honky Tonk Seating, you kind of wander around all night with a beer in your hand waiting for the concert to start (usually after 10:00 p.m.) then you squeeze as close to the stage as you can get. However, no matter how close you get, you are invariably stuck behind four or five rows of men who are wearing cowboy hats. Put another way, you can’t see shit.
The Winter brothers are going to be at the Civic Center and I’ll be in the third row…in a seat.
