Time is Tight

We just got home from Pig Out in the Park where Booker T. Jones (of Booker T. and the MGs fame) played a gig. As I’ve previously pointed out, many of the artists that I like aren’t touring anymore. When I found out that he was playing (for free!), that was all I needed to know that I had to go.

There was a lot of waiting around, and it was kind of cold, and I really wished we had camping chairs, but once Booker T. took the stage, it was worth being bored and uncomfortable. He played a bunch of songs from the era, and wrapped up the set with everyone’s favorite, Time is Tight. I was probably the youngest person there who actually knew the name of the song and had shown up expecting to hear it.

  1. OMG THOMAS! I was at Ruby Dee and the Snake Handlers which was at the City Hall Stage. I attempted to find your phone number earlier but for some reason it wasn’t in my phone, nor my messages or my deleted messages. It was hopeless.

    My parents were watching Booker T. James. They convinced me to go over there for like 5 minutes but I’ve been corrupted by rock and roll so I went back to the other concert.
