Concert: Southside @ Ear X-tacy and Carmichael's

Hunter S. Thompson's birthday is this Friday and Ron Whitehead and Southside are celebrating by performing some of Hunter's favorite songs. In addition, Southside will be playing some originals from their new album, 'Southside Lounge' (an excellent discs if I do say so myself!) The free in-store concert at Ear X-tacy records is this Friday the 18th at 7pm.

The following Thursday (July 24th) Southside will also play a book release show at Carmichael's Bookstore on Frankfort Ave. from 6-9pm. William McKeen will also be reading from and signing his new Hunter bio, OUTLAW JOURNALIST: The Life and Times of Hunter S. Thompson.

Ron has given us a sneak peek of some of the songs that will be played between the two shows...

Knockin' on Heaven's Door
White Rabbit
All Along the Watchtower
Alcohol and Pills
My Old Kentucky Home
Dead Flowers
Lawyers Guns and Money
One Toke Over The Line
It Ain't Me Babe
Gimme Shelter
Mr. Tambourine Man
Jumpin Jack Flash

If you're a regular to our site you'll remember when we posted the version of White Rabbit by Jim James and Sarah Elizabeth about a month ago, if not, go ahead and give it a listen.

I'm sorry, but Ron Whitehead = bleah. I mean, I've known famous people. Does that make me famous? Can I exploit those relationships for the rest of my days? That'd be awesome. 'k thanks.
