Drinking, Dancing, Debauchery, Poetry?

Last night I went to the launch party for Pine Magazine at The Seahorse. There were some readings from the magazine, and some poetry (which was kind of weird, since usually all you see at The Seahorse is a bunch of crusty ol' punks and metalheads getting drunk and falling all over the place). The real reason I was there, however, was to catch one of my favorite bands, Windom Earle. You can check out some of Stephan's stuff here, or here. The following is a quote from a review:

Windom earle is what happens when new age confronts pop in a dark alley and they go at it, bitchslapping each other silly until they make up and decide to be, like, y'know, best friends forever, and go shopping for cute outfits at the nearest mall.

Last night's set included a recent addition to the band, Dale Fahey (guitarist with The Spincycle Squared, and all around decent fella), who fit in quite nicely. The Windom Earle Karaoke Party was also in full effect last night, with Stephan doing his spirited rendition of "Footloose". A little bit a dancin', a little bit a drinkin', and a whole lot a funnin'. Indeed.
