  • Weirdest venue name you've ever seen

    This past weekend, I played back-to-back shows in Aiken, SC. While I was coming home late Saturday night using some back roads, I passed a bar that made me do a double take.

    I literally pulled over to take a picture of the sign while I was laughing my butt off:

    If you don't sing, don't expect to call the shots....
    Life is too short to waste it on douchebags...
    Sometimes I have this fear... that years from now, being able to play an instrument live will be looked at the same way we look at juggling now... as in "Well, I can see where that is difficult to do, but who cares?
    As a youngster, I was told that money was all that mattered.
    And I didn't believe it.

    We have some real winners here.

    Dum dums. Yep that's the name out front.

    Sheila's play pen. Actually played here, and when I did some old drunk chick went totally nuts and was screaming profanities at some guy at the bar.

    The wet spot (was owned by two lesbians at the time)

      We also have one called "the munch". No joke, the softball teams love this place.

      There's a club in Tahoe named Whiskey Dicks as well.  Dunno the name of the owner though.

      When my band used to travel out to Winnipeg Manitoba way back when, there was a restaurant we used to eat at called Hung Far Lo. It never ceased to amuse our juvenile minds. No entertainment though so maybe it doesn't qualify. Wait a minute, I see there's one in Portland Oregon.  I guess it might be the Chinese equivalent of the The Diner or whatever.

        I never played there but there was a gig in my town called "The Greek Club". Had a big sign that said:

        "The Greek Club"
        Park in front, enter in the rear.

        It was a straight bar so don't go there!
