My Kids Have Been Cheated

...out of Saturday night! Reminisce time folks. Saturday night was when you went out to rock out. So many bars, so many bands & you tried to see as many as possible in one night; coming home at 4am with 10 in/out stamps on the back of your hand after a greasy breakfast at the Lakewood Cafe. The Greenville Bar & Grille would be cranking out some rock and roll, it was covers at Rick's Casablanca and blues at the Texas Teahouse. The outlaw country fans were cutting a rug at Whiskey River & you could always catch some hair metal at Cardi's. Maybe you'd finish off with the last set with the nascant Deep Ellum scene at the Theater Gallery or the 500 Cafe.

To quote Blade Runner, "all this in time shall pass" & it has. It makes me sad for the teens & 20-somethings of today that they'll never get to experience a live music scene like this one. Let's face it, MySpace can't possibly be as much fun as a cold Corona on a hot Greenville Avenue Saturday night!
