Down House SignOn this day in 1917, John Birks “Dizzy” Gillespie was born in Cheraw, South Carolina.  Gillespie would go on to help create the jazz form bebop and make some waves in the Bayou City along the way.  There’s no record of where (besides the Music Hall and the police station) Dizz visited while he was here, but we bet if it were there at the time, he’d have enjoyed a visit to Down House1801 Yale St. Join us there at 8:00 PM for a cocktail or beer, and grab some good grub if you’re peckish.  DH is in the dry part of the Heights, so make sure you bring your I.D. so you can join their club for the night (or your existing club membership card if you’ve been there recently).  Also, they have more parking on 18th half a block west of Yale, if the main parking lot is full.

On this day in 1930, an airplane was launched from an airship for the first time.  While most people can make the obvious connection to dieselpunk, the connection to Texas singer-songwriting is less well known but equally valid.  After all,

If Ford is to Chevrolet
What Dodge is to Chrysler
What Corn Flakes are to Post Toasties
What the clear blue sky is to the deep blue sea
What Hank Williams is to Neil Armstrong

is there any doubt you should be hanging out with us tonight?
