Who knows what will happen next at the Blue Moon Saloon?
I'll explain about the Blue Moon. There are not many bars I'll go into by myself because I am just not comfortable hanging. Not the Blue Moon! It's a friendly and supportive atmosphere. Occasionally I get chatted up by a clueless guy, but never harassed. I get respect. Is it because the Blue Moon Saloon is outside? Or connected to a hostel?
And the music is just great there. Bands who play out of state for $15 and $30 play the Moon for $5. Can you name just six Cajun bands? If so, take one musician from each of five of those bands and that's the super group Racines, who play pretty much exclusively at the Blue Moon.
So today, the fabulous Sam Broussard (order his CD Geeks before it's gone) had finished playing and the Cajun jam had not yet started. Strains of "Hello Mary Lou" came from down by the bar. Folks drifted over to see an excellent barbershop quartet. They did one song; I still don't really know why.
I love that place.
