Robert Earl Keen at Billy Bob's

The Aggie talked me into taking her to Billy Bob's tonight to hear Texas A&M alum Robert Earl Keen.
I didn't require a lot of persuading. Great show.
The band was the same as you'll see here, minus the banjo:

Rich Brotherton, the guy playing the guitar solo at the 1:20 mark, probably isn't human. Or he's made a deal with Satan.

I think The Aggie turned down two different cowboys who wanted to dance. She claims that she shot one of them down because he had on a University Of Texas shirt.

I could've listened to REK all night. Great, great show. Go hear him if you ever get a chance.

He really is a great artist. My favorite song as a kid used to be merry Christmas from the family. Yes, I'm pretty young.

Please, please, please don't do that to me. At my age it seems like that song came out about 20 minutes ago.

OMG, I feel old.
And it's Monday morning - just what I need.

Is there any way you can put a "young person" block on the comments, WS?
