331 Club

My daughter called this morning to tell me about her evening. She lives in Nordeast, Minneapois, an epicenter of bar food, brew pubs and neighborhood bars. Last night she walked the three or four blocks to the 331 Club. The 331 seems to hit the trifecta - cheap food, entertainment, and no cover charge. (And within easy walking distance.) It was a blues night. She said it was fun - all the rest of the patrons were "old guys" who were really nice, all there to listen to a bluesman from Oxford, Mississippi. Jay Lang - she knows my musical preferences and she said she thought I'd like him. Oxford, Mississippi, the birth place of the blues! A Mississippi bluesman, obviously a wizen old black man who learned the blues at the knee of Robert Johnson. Or not.
