Kinky Friedman w/ The Village Irregulars
Paradiso ( main hall, seated)
19th May 2008
Little Jewford- keyboards
DC Washington Ratso- guitar
Kinky Friedman, with musical friends, Little Jewford and Washington Ratso, made a stop in Amsterdam during their European tour.
It was ten years that Friedman and friends played the Netherlands.
Due to touring expense and his hectic schedule in the US, it's not clear yet if Kinky will make it back
across the ocean for another tour for some years to come, so having been at this show was very special.
This was no ordinary musical show; it was over the top entertainment!
The show was cabaret-style, featuring lots of music by great musicians.
In addition to Kinky's classic songs, Kinky read passages from his latest book,
"You Can Lead A Politician To Water But You Can't Make Him Think,
Ten Commandments For Texas Politics"
The book chronicles his adventures along the campaign trail and shares uncensored thoughts on what's
wrong with government and how it can be fixed.
After the show a signing session took place in the foyer, where Kinky signed anything except bad legislation.
Unfortunately CD's and T-shirts were sold out quickly and I did not manage to get something to be signed.
Fortunately I have a better souvenir: this recording!
