We was robbed.

Last night the 26th Annual Battle of the Jug Bands was held at the Cabooze.

Though my darling Como Ave. Jug Band put on one helluva show that the audience TOTALLY loved... they lost to Grandma's Saggy Jug Band. Who also won in 2006.


I'm starting to think there is a conspiracy happening. This was the third year the CAJB competed, the third year that they were obviously the crowd favorite... and yet? No golden waffle iron.

Fuck 'em.

However, the Battle is great fun. The people watching is fantastic... lots of dancing hippies. Except for the lamentable lack of deodorant, it's a pleasurable experience for all the senses.

Next year there will be a very new and tiny member of the CAJB. They will have to win due to sheer cuteness. The kid will be about six months old... that's old enough to become proficient at the fiddle, right?
