Great Bottle Rockets Show


Butch, me & Brian Hennemann of the Bottle Rockets, one of my favorite songwriters. (Note: dig me in full nerd mode: wearing a Bottle Rockets t-shirt, posing for a picture with the dude from the Bottle Rockets.)

Saw a great Bottle Rockets show last night at the Mercury Lounge. The BoRox are celebrating its 15th anniversary with 15 special shows across the U.S. with a different fan writing the setlist at each stop. The BoRox tore through classics like "$1,000 Car" and "Indianapolis," and also stuff I've never heard them play live before, like "Wave That Flag" and a couple new tunes.


It was cool when Eric "Roscoe" Ambel, who opened for the BoRox with scorching set of his own, joined the band for their encore. Here's Brian and 'Scoe singing "White Boy Blues," a tune they wrote together on the Bottle Rockets 1999 record "Brand New Year."


How good was the show? So good that Charlene and Butch totally made out.
