Foghat, blue oyster cult, really? Its all good and grate if you saw em back in 78, but im mighty tired of seeing washed up classic rockers trying to suck the life out of a career thats turned to a corpse. Not cool, lets keep it real.

Hey rainyday, have you actually seen Foghat recently? Or BOC? Why don't you say the same about Willy? He's older than anyone. Why don't you see them first, then judge.

This lineup actually looks damn good. This will probably be my last shot at seeing Willie live. Classic rock, outlaw country, and even Ghostland Observatory? Quite a bit of good music to choose from. And you can't beat seeing it all on a beach. I just saw the dates. In November?? Damn! Count me in!

"Last time I checked, we don't have a lot of songs that feature the cowbell. And I would be doing the band a disservice...IF I DIDN'T PLAY THE HELL OUTTA THIS THING!"

This is great news for South Padre. These bands fit in well with the laid back flavor of our town. I am really looking forward to this and hope the rest of you are too. If you are looking for ways to help out our local economy, this is one easy way. You will enjoy good music, great food, and great fishing.

Best,

Sam Malone

Sam, when did you move from Boston to South Padre? I guess I can't blame you, what with the beaches and all the spring break kids down there on the island. Beats a bar full of fat drunks. Say hello to Norm and Cliff if you happen to see them.

Sorry, I just couldn't resist.

Hey Rainydaywomen420...Washed up? I'm sure in between bong hits you realized that your handle is from a what you would call a "washed" up singers lineup. Not just from your favorite weed/southpark episode. Take a listen and free your mind. P.S.-Aren't you 420 people supposed to be passive and sublime,... someone spiked your stash.lol.
