Tuck: You occasionally notice such bands. Often it turns out that FB just won't admit they're on FB. Or that they haven't admitted they're a band yet.

Last week I flew into O'Hare Airport in Chicago, and had the joy and privilege for 2 successive nights to catch LOS STRAITJACKETS on their ROCK 'N' BURLESQUE SPECTACULAR Tour with THE WORLD FAMOUS PONTANI SISTERS. The shows included wild man IAN CARLTON, and hula-hoop entertainer REVOLVA.

First night, following a trip up to Milwaukee, Wisconsin, was Thursday October 20, 2011, at a crazy slightly unsteady venue called TURNER HALL. Read about this cool place here, http://www.expressmilwaukee.com/article-8601-turner-hall-milwaukeerss-enduring-landmark.html

Here are the videos now loaded in to my YouTube page, in order:

I changed the title of this thread so I could include one more video. This one comes from the HighLine Ballroom in NYC on Wed. October 26 2011.

The tune is called,
"POSITIVELY 6th STREET"
