Okay tonight we travel to The Tartan Inn to see MBIP pal and local bartender, artist and musician, Gavra Lynn, who’s playing there tonight. Gavra’s really a talented musician and I’m looking forward to seeing her and listening to her musical stylings tonight. So I’m going to quit writing this goddamned introduction and get the fuck over there! To the MBIIP mobile!
Off we go into the heat of the night...actually there's no heat out here tonight at all, it's freezing out here. It's colder than a scorned Martha Stewart.
Here we are at the Tartan Inn, this shot is a little dark, but fuck it, I'm freezing my balls off out here, let's get inside and warm up!
Wow, there's a big crowd here to see Gavra, and I see a familiar face at the bar...
Speaking of Brads, here's Bad Brad, sprawled out at the bar on the stools next to me. Make yourself at home, Bad Brad!
Check out the green glowing bottles behind the bar. Are they filled with nuclear booze? A couple shots from those things and you'll be nuclear wasted!
There's Christmas presents and knick-knacks strewn over the bar.
Wooden oval tables and chairs line the outer wall, opposite the bar.
Stockings are hung overhead, but they need to start filling them up!
We met Jenny the last time we were here too. She was working here then, but she's not working here anymore, she was just in as a customer. She did however jump back behind the bar to pour a couple of shots for us! You gotta love that smile!
And fall back! Cheers and thanks to Jenny for the shot.
I've turned the flash off so I won't bug her as she performs, so the photo's are going to be a little grainy, but I kind of like them like this. Here's Gavra performing the song, "Juanita" by the Flying Burrito Brothers which is one of my favorite songs and Gavra does a great version of it.
Check it out, Bad Brad hasn't moved since he's plopped down in here. I'm wondering if someone put a Quaalude in his beer!
Okay, I flipped the flash back on to get a shot of Gavra who's joined onstage by Roger on bass and Santa hat.
In addition to cover songs, Gavra has plenty of her own original material and they're great songs!
Even The Beatles have paused for the cause, so you know she's putting on a wonderful show up there!
It was a great show, continue to check out The Tartan Inn schedule as Gavra will be playing more here in the future.
And now for beer number two, served up with the traditional two finger salute by Brad.
