Lafayette Park '07

Originally uploaded by dehmystic
So the 6 of us....yep, we're growing the groupies one assimilation at a time,...headed down to Lafayette to catch the full band at the park.

We were ill prepared. BYOB? Chairs? Blankets? Damn, good thing Kurtis and Mr LJ headed out to locate provisions! But did they have to drive all the way to a Schnucks??? There was some debate over that...but the improtant thing is that we got to lay beneath the stars, drink some suds and rock out to JM!

After, we grabbed some mexican grub and went to 1111 for some drinks and to chat with JM and Dave Aholt (piano master).

Great night! A Big Huge THANKS to Kurtis for driving the Big Green Machine so we could all ride together! When is the bar getting installed?!?

One old groupie + One new groupie

Aren't they sweet?! Hangin' out at Lafayette Park!

Jammin' at the Zoo

HOT HOT HOT...but the beer was cold!

Here we are at the Zoo, checking out JM with a mix of musicians. I have to say the piano is a great addition. We heard it at Finale previously....and we like it!

We tried a new organic beer, a hefeweizen, and some Amber Bock...all AB products.

Rockin' the animals!

Live on the Levee '07

Originally uploaded by dehmystic
Our fab four headed down to catch Javi at Live on the Levee in STL...

Great show, not too hot, slight breeze and dinner at Schlafly's Tap Room afterward. In spite of our grouchy waiter.....the dinner was good.

We then decided that since we were "in the neighborhood" we would check out the Chocolate Bar in Lafayette.....uh...yeah..we thought we knew how to get there! After MrsLJ called them for some assistance...we made it!

Kurtis & Tiphani at Seven Gables

Another Javi evening at Seven Gables in Clayton, MO. This time we had dinner with Kurtis & Tiphani at Seven Gables. Later on MrLacubriousJonez joined us...but not until after he munched on some grub right across the street!!! Even the manager at Seven Gables had a turn at harrassing him...skunky wine, anyone?!

Wine of the evening was a Rosemount Shiraz...

On Top of the World!

Originally uploaded by dehmystic
The picture to the right shows Mr. Lacubrious Jonez playing "On Top of The World" with Carlito for the sound check at the Riverfront Cultural Society in New Haven Mo.

Javi took the stage at 8:00pm. This was an AMAZING show!!! The place was packed! We don't know the exact numbers, but we estimate 100 people in attendance. If you count the people outside dancing in the street, I am sure that it was more like 120!

Another highlight was meeting Trevor Snarr, a friend of Javi's from his Trekking for Kids trip a few years ago. It turns out that Trevor is a part time movie actor who was in the movie Napoleon Dynamite. He played the jock boyfriend of the cheerleader.


Javi and Carl really rocked the place.


The RCS is really a pretty good music venue. Until this show we had only seen it from the outside. We had heard both good and bad things about the place. It is a very "rustic" 80 to 100 year old building with a creaky floor, and no two tables or chairs the same. Although they didn't have a sound guy, Javi managed to figure out the board in no time and the sound through the really nice JBL speakers was incredible. The really cool thing about RCS is that they are a non-for-profit organization that is run strictly by volunteers. You can bring in what ever you want to eat or drink, you only have to pay the cover charge so that the bands, rent, and utilities get paid. The cover for Javi's show was only $7!


We had a lot of friends and family join us including uncle Ed, his friend Rick and Rick's son Josh from Connecticut. In total the Lacubrious Crew brought out eleven guests to the show.
