Cellophane Men

5:30 am by

Moses Guest kicked off our 2008 musical adventures last night with a much-needed helping of jammy goodness. Eggs, Doughnut, Coffee, Chilaquiles and I joined the crowd at the I’ve-never-seen-it-so-packed-before Continental Club to take in the band’s brand of Southern rock/jam grooves. It was the first time we’d caught this Houston-based group live, and we were quite impressed. Check back very soon for a review by Eggs.

In addition to enjoying the prime groovage, we also got a lot of great shots of the band as well as of show-goers. My personal favorite from the batch of fan photos is this one, entitled (at their request) “Three Stoned Men”:
