Just want to take a moment to rave about the wonderful show Big Bad Voodoo Daddy gave tonight. Their sound is retro but fresh, their enthusiasm for their own music and that of their inspirations (from Cab Calloway to Rankin-Bass!) infectious, and the sight of a full dance floor of couples executing swing moves amid a crowd, while the audience claps--ah, I've got to say, it was fun.
Since I came from work, and the weather was cold, I could have passed for someone much more versed in the scene--three piece suit, hat and all. But I knew better than to try my luck on the dance floor; these folks know what they're doing.
