Mad Swirl Open Mic 03.02.2011

notes of gratitude to ALL the mad ones!

0n 02.02.11, Mad Swirl slip-slided our way to do the open mic voodoo that what we do do every 1st Wednesday of the month at Absinthe Lounge! The small, yet surprisingly rowdy crowd in the Lounge dug the musical musings of Swirve as they started things moving. Then hosts Johnny O and MH Clay got to callin' all the mad poets, musicians, singers & performers & a few other miscellaneous mad ones in Absinthe Lounge to come & strut their mad stuff! And strut it they did!

Mad Swirlin' thanks to the following mad ones that made this past open mic one of the most wonder-filled nights ever... (in order of appearence)

Johnny O (host)

A very special swirlin’ thanks to the hep cats who are Swirve. Gerard Bendiks kept the beat on skins and trumpeteer Chris Curiel keepin' us movin' and groovin' all night long and special guest keyboardist Sam Whitt for keeping us toasty and warm with their musical musings!

HUGE thanks to Absinthe Lounge owner Kevin Christensen for allowing us mad ones to go with our flow for AMOST 6 years now. And a shout-out to the fine Lounge staffers for keeping the mad spirits fillin' and swillin' for us buzzed mad ones.

And finally we would like to thank ALL of you who freely shared their hand claps, finger-snaps, hoots and howls with all the mad ones who got up on this sacred mad swirlin' mic.
