Is This The End for the Fuffering Suckheads?

You'll have to tune in next week, folks -- actually, it sounds like we will be back at the Sunset Tavern on the first Sunday of every month starting up in June, so we are all very excited to be going back to a club and staff we know and love. The gig on Sunday night was zany as always, but everyone was even more on edge as it was seemingly the end of era -- over a year and a half of Sundays devoted to this strange experiment of Ron and Mike's they call "punk jazz".  I still haven't decided it that's the right term for the band, despite having played with them for the better part of the last year or so. I've posted some pictures over on my Flickr account, and I'll try to see if there are any more out there -- many people were taking pictures besides me.  We will also be trudging along at the Seamonster Lounge, where we play the last Saturday of the month.  Throw in a gig here and there at the Fiddler's Inn, and you'll have no problem finding the Fuffering Suckheads (referred to as such for the sake of public decency).
