Tonight (last night, actually), I saw Peter Frampton at the Isle of Capri casino in Lake Charles. He was as energetic, talented and charismatic as ever. His voice and guitar playing were everything I remembered from the last time I saw him in 1980 in Beaumont. The show lasted a full two hours which included a twenty minute encore. If he brings his tour anywhere near you, you should try to go. His version of "Black Hole Sun" alone is worth the price of admission.
After the concert, we went to Crockett Street and caught Joe Mendoza and Smokin' Joe Soliz and their band (which is currently nameless, although the name might or might not be "The Joe Mendoza Blues Band") at The Hub on Crockett Street. These guys are amazing and will be playing on the patio at Cafe Del Rio Friday, June 18, 2010. You should go. I'll save you a chair.
