It was a beautiful afternoon on Saturday at Yalaha Bakery for the Simple Cavemen’s last visit until fall.
A big crowd of old friends and new ones was receptive to our songs about Disasters, Samosa Girls, Texas and the blues, flavored by odd little guitars and wah-wah pedals.
Although the band won’t be back at the bakery until September, Jimmy Carl has a slate of solo Yalaha gigs through the summer, starting on June 2.
Much thanks to the folks at Yalaha Bakery for all the support.
