Tonight The Swinging Orangutangs will be playing our first gig of the summer. If the weather holds its beautiful course, we'll be performing outside at The Blennerhassett Hotel. If it decides to rain, we'll be inside (still a nice place to play music, but less magical).
The overall mode of music tonight will be mellow. The Blennerhassett prefers its live music at a level that permits the easy exchange of witty, sparkling conversation and bon-mots without the need to shout.
"I say, my good fellow. Isn't that a pop hit by The Fine Young Cannibals the band is playing currently?"
"Fie upon thee, knave! 'Tis The Violent Femmes!"
We plan to oblige in any case. So, if you are reading this edition of BOTB, and you'd like to make the scene, we start at 7 pm at The Blennerhassett Hotel (pictured above in the poster) on Market Street in deepest downtown Parkersburg, WV. And if you keep rock-n-roll hours, here's a warning: we finish by 10 pm.
If you'd like to submit your song request for tonight's show, please do so, via the comments interface here on BOTB. Sorry, no Molly Hatchet. The restraining order is still in effect.
For those among you who are confused and perhaps leaping for the dictionary: Yes, we spell orangutan with a G. Why? because we put the 'tang back in orangutang!
