Wow - but Bessie Smith spills fire and fury in Hateful Blues on Columbia Record 14023D. Talk about hymns of hate - Bessie sure is a him-hater on this record. The way she tells what she is going to do with her "butcher" will make trifling fellows catch express trains going at 60 miles an hour. The music is full of hate too. You can almost see hate drip from the piano keys. Every note is a half-note. No quarter for anyone - Chicago defender ad, July 1924

Devin Champlin - Seattle - 11/11
« on: November 07, 2014, 06:55:21 PM »
Hey Folks,

  Attention Seattle-area Weenies...

  I'll be playing a solo set at Percy's in Ballard this Tuesday night!  I'll be up in the front window, and I imagine this to be somewhat of a background entertainment kinda thing.  So I'll be enjoying myself, noodling away on some oldie moldies, blue standards, and perhaps some Fahey-inspired ramblings.  Hope to see you!

Tuesday, Nov 11, 9-11pm
Percy's & Co, 5233 Ballard Ave, Seattle

Hi Devin,
I was not in Seattle when you played.  How did it go, and how was Percy's to play for you?  I hope to catch you next time.
All best,

 Hi John,

  It was a fun night.  It was, as I expected, mostly a background music kind of thing.  A few friends and folks came out, including Del Rey.  If you had been there too, I think I really would have really been sweating with the "better play this one good, 'cause the folks out there know" blues! 

  Percy's is a fairly new bar, but in a lovely old building, and they're booking Tuesday nights and Sunday brunches, mostly duos and solo acts.  I'll try to keep you posted for next time!
