If thereâ€™s one thing the Press Club is not known for, itâ€™s comedy; if thereâ€™s another, itâ€™s jazzâ€”yet both will be on display alongside one of Sacramentoâ€™s favorite bands, The Snobs, this Tuesday night at 9 p.m.
Comedian and host Noel Dewitt (who also happens to own one of Sacramento’s best salons,Â Mirrors) will share the stage with an unlikely, but hard-not-to-like lineup of comedian John Ross, comedy jazz duo The Freebadge Serenaders (donâ€™t be surprised if one of the members of the Serenaders looks surprisingly like me), and The Snobs.
The cover charge is a paltry $3, and drink specials will be flowing all night. Come on by for some toe-tappinâ€™, belly-bustinâ€™ good times.
I was hungry, so my trusty dog and I were chasing the wild chickens that inhabit hobotown on the North side of Boulevard Park. Hot on the trail, we crashed under a chainlink fence and were surprised to find a musical combo practicing their hot licks. We sat in the dirt and enjoyed their raising a ruckus for the local hobos that tolerated their caterwauling so they could cop a squat next to their barrel fire and catch a whiff of their manly musk. We passed a jug, kicked the dirt and roasted chickens until the night became blurry and uncomfortable.
Thankfully, I had forgotten most of that night until today, when I saw an ad for a hootenanny at Luna’s tonight. Sure enough, it was those two fine smelling gentlemen grinning out from the photo, bringing back terrible memories of undercooked poultry and a two week battle with the hobo flu. The only good recollection I have of that night is the toe tapping tunes and sharp wit of the Freebadge Serenaders that had me holding my belly with laughter and indigestion.
