    I know this will reach maybe 4 people.... but does anyone want 2 tickets to the Lake Street Dive show at the Civic tomorrow (tonight, I guess... Saturday. that's it)? My wife's grandmother died today and we can no longer make it. They're GA tickets with balcony access.

    Asking $25 (face value minus fees), but will honestly take whatever to make sure they're used. Let me know if you want them ASAP and I can email them to you!

    EDIT: Sweet Crude is opening (awesome local indie pop/folkish fun times band that dips in and out of Cajun French)

    Here's a video of Lake Street Dive to help convince you...

    Those are some good trailers, Paw-paw.
    We have been known to pop into Picayune now and then, mainly for BBQ related stuff, but Paul's pastries is wonderful. They did our wedding cakes.

    Haha. Paul's Pastries is amazing. Everytime I need a cake done, it's always through them. I work a lot so it's hard to find time to stop by and get food.

    I was recently looking into opening up a small shop in that shopping area. Have been researching and making a plan for a while now. Between New Orleans and Hattiesburg, there are no record stores(hell, nothing great in MS period)

    I've been wanting to go hunting in Mississippi for a while. I know there have to be some lost collections out that way. The old stuff in NOLA has been picked and priced down to the bone.

    I used to spend A LOT of time in Picayune. My ex's mom lived in some weird gated community in Picayune. We'd go out there about 1x a month from the city. Is it still dry? We used to have to bring several boxes of wine to the mom, since it was dry - at least back then.

    Still dry as hell out here. Sort of. We have an Applebee's that serves alcohol but they get mad when you put it in a to-go cup, ha.

    I have to go to Slidell to get my scotch and wine. It's a hassle but it gets me out of this town for a few.

    There really isn't much here. Other than your typical F.Y.E. or Barnes and Nobles. They have T-Bones in Hattiesburg and a big house in Jackson, which in my opinion are over priced. Got a couple little things from there but won't go out of my way. That's why I want to open one here.

    the first record store I ever loved was BeBops in Jackson. I used to work a summer camp about 30 minutes south of Jackson and I had just started buying records. I would go between sessions every now and then. Then they closed :(

    When did they close? I lived in Jackson in 2005-2008 and never saw that store. I would loved to have gone there.

    I worked the camp from 07-09. I think the last time I went to the shop was the summer of 09. I had a friend who lived in Jackson who said it closed maybe a year or two after that.


    But after a Google search it looks like they did indeed close "for good" but then have since reopened. So who knows!?!
