Humble apologies for taking so long to post this set list from the Simple Cavemen’s Aug. 18 show at Stardust Video & Coffee.
Many, many thanks go out to a lot of folks, including Brett Bennett and his terrific Stardust staff, as well as all the friends, family and Cavemen loyalists who made the night so special for the band with your presence.
Also, a big tip-of-the-hat to Cavemen alum Steve Jackson, who joined us on bass for the two-fer of “Like a Rolling Stone” and “American Girl.” Also, a big thanks to young Jack Bove for adding fine electric guitar to a handful of songs.
We heard from several folks that they’d like to see us at Stardust more often, so we’re going to try to plan another show before year’s end. Meantime, you can catch the Simple Cavemen on Saturday, Sept. 29, at Yalaha Bakery in lovely Lake County.
