notes of gratitude to ALL the mad ones!

0n 07.07.10, Mad Swirl continued to do the poetic & musical open mic voodoo that what we do do every 1st Wednesday of the month at Absinthe Lounge! The crowd in the Lounge dug the musical musings of G. Be. W. Then hosts Johnny O and Gordon Hilgers 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!

A very special swirlin’ thanks to the hep cats who are G. Be. W. We dug the mad ticklin' of the keys from pianist Bernard Wright while Gerard Bendiks kept the beat on skins keepin' us movin' and groovin' all night long!

HUGE thanks to Absinthe Lounge owner Kevin Christensen for allowing us mad ones to go with our flow for OVER 5 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.

where's this madness take place?
