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.0 People like this. Be the first!
