Around 9 p.m. last night, the Mavericks were finishing up the first half, warm peanuts sat in a barrel at Jack Daniels Saloon, and Bravo, Max! began tuning up for Locals Only, part deux. Meanwhile, the mechanical bull was chucking back and forth on the patio.
A quick recap: Locals Only is the monthly, free concert series we here at DC9 are doing (the third Thursday of each month) at Jack Daniel's Saloon on South Lamar. Last week was Kirby Brown and Whiskey Folk Ramblers (and a particularly spunky puppet), and this week featured Bravo, Max! and Analog Rebellion and a mechanical bull.
Bravo, Max! and Analog Rebellion, who had some tech errors, punched out some great rock. Photographer Alex Scott, fresh from Patio Sessions at the AT&T PAC, captured the bands in motion (as well as some bull riders).
One of our favorite shots -- the one above -- is so very in need of a great caption that we're giving away concert tickets to the most interesting one. In the comments below, drop the best caption you can muster, and the winner will get a pair of tickets to Beirut at the South Side Music Hall on June 6.
Don't stress too long though, we're going to close it out at 5 p.m. Update: We have a winner! To be announced shortly. It's Friday, after all.
And ... GO!
