Bye Bye Bernie - One Cool Cat
On Friday, March 14, The Black Cat will say happy birthday and fare well to Bernie Wandel who has been working at the club since before it existed. If you have been to the Black Cat, you have seen Bernie in various stages of dress and undress. Bernie's next calling is as a yoga instructor, and if you think about it there are alot of similarities. Not surprising for the man referred to as "Spiritual Guidance Guru" in the liner notes for Henry Rollins' Hot Animal Machine. In fitting tribute for a guy who has played in too many bands to list here, a bunch of great folks will be playing. The line-up includes The Shirks, Dennis Kane, Puptent, Yell County, Sons of Disobedience, Rambling Shadows and DJ Yellow Fever - all free on the mainstage at 9 pm.
Thank you Bernie for helping make the Black Cat a source of hometown pride.. and rock on.
