Just Down the Street in Dallas

By Larry Miller

I live in Dallas, Texas about two blocks from a bar. It just so happens that this is a BLUES BAR near the end of a street replete with music joints and restaurants and bars. It opens at 3:00 pm and closes at 2:00 am. No food, no popcorn, no beer nuts!! Just beer, more beer, wine, and liquor....lots of liquor and LIVE MUSIC, mostly BLUES, with two bands a night on many nights. ************************************************ **

A love for the blues, and curiosity, compelled me to visit this Blues bar where the mostly Caucasian patrons are treated to gut-level and wonderfully vulgar blues songs, songs about death and love, songs with open solicitations for sex, and songs about the utter brilliance of quick, hot, and hard passion (and occasionally it's consequences), all being told by a narrator who is in major despair and is depressed out of his mind, i.e., has the blues. ************************************************ *****

That first night, when the slender young white guitar player stood at the mike, peeked around his girlish locks like veronica lake, and said: "We're gonna play the Blues for ya. Has anyone here ever had the blues? Then you know what i'm talking about!!!".

Well, the crowd started applauding even before the music started!!And when the band launched into the first tune, the audience seemingly felt themselves (and their own blues and their own sexuality) existentially relevant and justified - They howled and applauded like hell at the end of "Hootchie Cootchie Man", (mostly the females at the front tables, who loved the idea of the blues-man having a "Mojo" and a "Hootchie Cootchie Man", "). duke romilar (a.k.a. larry miller)
