Last night I met up with some friends from Cleveland here in Austin at the Alamo Drafthouse for their Music Mondays feature film, the Weird World of Blowfly.

Though Cleveland is a rough place at times, it still rocks in its own way, especially at Now That’s Class in my mind is one of the best bars and music venues ever! While living in Cleveland and bartending at NTC, I was fortunate enough to experience live performance by the Blowfly himself aka Clarence Reid and his band, one of the greatest southern soul singer song writers of all time. The bar only three years young risked it all to book the Blowfly for their 3rd year anniversary party. I was bartending the night of his performance and got to hang out and serve food and drinks to Blowfly and his band, which amazed me after hearing some of the raunchiest lyrics I’ve never heard! It blew my mind that someone so sober could write such songs! A legendary black weird al meets 2 live crew but better Hahahaha

Needless to say the blowfly movie was a trip and I would recommend for anyone with a sense of humor and good musical taste.

Pre blowfly extravaganza, I ventured up north to cedar park, TX to the brushy creek skatepark, “no bikes” but
Somehow managed to not get kicked out or have the cops called and had a blast! That bowl is gnarly but fun, smaller concrete version of the skatepark of Austin bowl RIP..
