Setting: BJ’s (dive) bar in the bywater, New Orleans
Man: hey I’m Josh
Emily: hi I’m Emily
Man: where are you from?
Emily: New York
Man: city or upstate
Man: do you know Johnny Dowd?
Emily: ………….are you fucking with me?
Emily: did you look at my wallet or something?
Man: no….you’ve had it in your pocket this whole time…..you know him?
Emily: umm my name is Emily Dowd. I’m his niece.
Man: tell him the following, “Morning forty federation, saxophone and vocalist.” I totally butchered the song. He told me I sang off key and he was right. He’s a straight up guy. I’m an expert in obscure music and Johnny Dowd is my fucking hero.”
yo to josh—morning forty was one of the best live bands i’ve ever seen–there record is amazing–i hope all those guys are still making music
