Further proof that Winnemucca is cool

Great Basin Arts and Entertainment lead by Bill Sims is bringing the band in the below video "Guitar-Sitar Jugalbandi" on Friday. If I was in Reno I would be flying to Winn that night. There is a Sitar player, a tabla player, and a guy on a scalloped guitar. WTF! I had never even heard of a scalloped guitar! What Port is Winnemucca bringing all this culture from anyway?! Must be Port Sims.

It's probably a good thing I'm not going. It would just be awkward when I ask them to sign my chest.

Can I tell you how mad Matt is that he can't go? I got to hear ALL about this concert and how cool the scalloped guitar is (he plays it John McLaughlin style, no less).

Hah, I say. He's spoiled anyways. As much as I love him, there is no way I'm driving out there and back Friday night.

I saw a three man band similar to this in 2002 in Mor, Hungary. Totally by random and that my traveling companion from Australia read a posted flyer. They were playing in a little park across the street from our hotel. It was a perfect evening. Thanks for reminding me of it.
