DC Trash Talk
Jake Flack of the Rhodes Tavern Troubadours has a way with words and a wicked sense of humor. His song "Supercan," a DC anthem of sorts, sincerely thanks Marion Barry for bringing us those democratic vessels that grace our alleys, and only gently alludes to our mayor-for-life's foibles. Just this month, we denizens of the District got brand new Supercans thanks to our current mayor Vincent Gray. But along with the garbage bins came a new report further involving Mayor Gray's possible involvement with a shady shadow campaign. Despite his denials, things smell a little off -a lot like that that forgotten chicken sandwich in the back of the firdge.
DC politics as usual?
It's makes my head hurt to think about it. That's why I'll be at Iota this Friday night listening to the Troubadours rock and roll rather than Mayor Grey making statements that begin with "to be honest..." The uber- talented though sometimes elusive Marshall Keith will make a rare appearance to get the night going bringing the sum total of Slickee Boys in the house up to two. Music starts round 9.
