Last Week Sunset Brought Out the Stars
The Sunset Grille is the kind of place where you can rub elbows with just about everyone- musicians and fans alike. Check out Chip Py's picture above. The room might look big enough, but see the couple in front of the band? They are actually standing at the bar-just beyond the dance floor which expands and contracts depending on the mood of the crowd.
The Grille may be small in size, but it is big on music. Just last week brought not only David Kitchen's all star line up, but also a rare glimpse of Slickee Boy Mark Noone sitting in with the band, shredding guitar. And as if that wasn't enough, Eddie Angel showed up after his Los Straightjackets' gig and did two songs including Tex Rubinowitz'"Bad Boy" which might still be on the juke box at Tastee Diner in Bethesda. (This is deep D.C. area music history - even if we were in the wilds of Annandale.)
David Kitchen is back at the Grille the next two Thursday nights.
Things might lean towards the predictable at home, but you never know what might happen if you venture out.
