Lucinda Williams - Bleeding Fingers
Is there a better song title for a Friday Rock Out than "Real Live Bleeding Fingers and Broken Guitar Strings"? We've loved this song since the first time we heard Lucinda sing it in concert, several months before it appeared on World Without Tears.
As we're mercifully moving into the warm weather period, nothing says summer to us like a cold tasty beverage in the sun and Lucinda's Car Wheels on a Gravel Road playing in the background.
Speaking of tasty beverages, it's probably about time to set aside the bitters and amber ales and move towards more of a pale pilsner or lager for the summer months. Steam Whistle is always a really nice warm weather beer, and for those of you who plan to visit the Dome from out of town this summer, you owe it to yourself to head over to their brewery at the Roundhouse, just across the street. There are free samples to be had, and if you don't abuse the privilege, you may be able to get a second sample out of the stellar staff.
Summer is also a good time for a tasty Blanche de Chambly, which kicks the snot out of the Rickard's and Keith's white beers that have slunk into the market.
And just to prove that we're not a complete beer snob, we would enjoy a Molson Ex, if you're offering.
Here's to a warm weekend of summer imbibing, and a fine evening with Roy Halladay pitching. Sociable!
