Jukin' and Capitol Viewin'

Saturday we went to Teddy's Juke Joint, a small club near Zachary, LA and there we saw blues musician Eden Brent play. Teddy was present, in his cowboy hat. The club is the house that Teddy grew up in and where he has been operating his joint for 32 years. These colored lights surround Teddy's dj booth where he plays records between sets and romances you in a low-toned voice. Click here to view pictures of Teddy on his site!

Earlier on Saturday we went to the state capitol building, which has an open observation deck on the 27th floor. Two elevators got us up there and we could see everything from LSU to the Spanish arsenal in the park beside the capitol to the vats of boiling oil farther down the river.

That last one is the Pentagon Barracks, the original site of LSU. There were five buildings but one burned down.

And here's a picture of Doc Watson who performed wonderfully at Jazzfest in New Orleans on Friday. He's the one on the right.
