Miz Wanda Jackson!

Wanda Jackson, the Queen of Rock & Roll.

This was the opening weekend for the new music venue Marathon Music Works in Nashville. DJ Johnny getting everyone warmed up for the openers . . .

Pretty bad photos, but a really good show. She's an amazing 74 year old rocker! I  kept waiting for Jack White to show up on stage because he's the one credited for bringing Mz. Wanda back onto the scene (and The Black Belles record on his label). I love that. Just what Bonnie Rait has done for the old blues' players.

A fun moment of the evening (among many) was parking next to Mr. Mike Wolf of American Picker fame. He's recently moved his family to Nashville, and has even opened a store here. I'm dying to go, but I'm trying to stay away as long as I can! ha. Anyhoo, we pull into the parking lot and this old VW bug parks right next to us. I look out and it's Mike Wolf! How funny. A really nice gent when we asked about the bug. He stayed in the VIP "loft." Fa fa fa. Probably where Jack was, if he was there. I wondered if Mike helped with the outfitting of some of the items in the place. It was very industrial feeling. I suppose they wanted to keep that warehousey feel because it was once home of Marathon Motor WorksWho knew there were cars made in Nashville in the late 1800s into the early 1900s? Not I.

Oh, and PS, the aligator bracelet I wore last night (photo in previous post) was a birthday present from  my brother! Is it not kick ass?!
