Description 05 - Monte-freakin'-forte!

We're living in a powderkeg and giving off sparks as we go to the Legendary Horseshoe Tavern for a rare performance by Monteforte, who inspire everyone (especially men) to dance like they're still in Grade 8. Also, watching the CFL, a plea for groin-rubbing, and somebody's hair kicking somebody else's hair's ass.

This is what you use to subscribe.
This is what you use if you're feeling damned impatient.

We should be able to get away with all this music being lavishly un-podsafe, since I talk over some of it (though you can't understand most of what I'm saying) and the recording quality is what you'd figure from a person moving all around a club and dancing with a iRiver and Griffin mic clipped to her little purse. But really, MF is not really about the quality of the music as it is...uh, showmanship, and...er...passion...oh, and an excuse to get drunk. So you pretty much get that here.

I wish I'd been able to say more about the 'shoe. Behind the back bar (where I ended up in the first segment) is a collection of hundreds of bumper and band stickers, as well as a little Elvis shrine. Above the checkerboard dancefloor (which was full most of the night) is a recreation of a massive poster for the film Bye Bye Birdie. Probably thousands of people have an image of Ann-Margaret spinning in their heads from glancing up at that ceiling. Not a bad thing.

So what was in the second MF set? Sweet Caroline, Lick It Up, Gypsies Tramps and Thieves, Fame, and it just goes on and on. And to settle the discussion in the restroom, they played THREE Bon Jovi songs, which is one above the municipal limit.
