After you have taken care of your taxes on Monday, stop in at The Big Easy Blues on Kirby and take in some great Blues jams. If you are getting a refund of your money, throw a few dollars in John’s tip jar, or pick up a CD. If you have spent the last several days stressing out, this is a great way to let off some steam, enjoy a few beers and some live, local Blues.

Monday night, December 17, is the final chance to catch John Egan live at The Big Easy Blues in 2012. John will be back at The Big Easy after the fist of the year, but with the following two Mondays being Christmas Eve and New Year’s Eve, it’s a good time for John to work on some new music, finalize the vinyl pressing and prepare for Memphis (more on Memphis in a later post). Anyway, head out to hear John on Monday night, and follow him on twitter @GinDiaries to be kept up to date on all his appearances and other news.

If you get out to one of John’s shows, be sure to let us know what you think, either here or on twitter @ParkhurstGroup, especially if you take pictures.

Houston blues musician John Egan was featured in this article about going to record stores recently in the New York Times:

John Egan, “Phantoms” (Gin Diaries)

The son of a former Houston Rockets point guard and coach of the same name, Mr. Egan is a regular presence on the Houston club scene, playing dark but rich-sounding solo blues on a resonator guitar.

“He’s been kicking around Houston for years and just starting to get the credit he deserves,” Mr. Bishop said. “He’s a stomping, hollering bluesman. But in a lot of ways, along with the blues, it’s also got an outsider-folk element to it, like it’s cut from the cloth of a classic Tom Waits record. It’s a really dark and masterful album.”

Texas Road Sign Can Double As Advertisement

Texas now has a few select roads where driving 85 is allowed by law. So, that leads me to wonder if this sign might be featured on upcoming versions of Texas tourism brochures, pamphlets or tv commercials. And Chamber of Commerce officials might want to take notice, this is the sort of thing that can lure people away from traffic-ridden places like California. Texas is advertising, just by displaying its mandatory road signs.

John Egan Played Monday Night

Houston blues artist John Egan performed once again Monday night at The Big Easy. John put on a great show, as usual. If you haven’t made it out to hear him yet, you’re missing out. If you have ever been to The Big Easy, you know it is not a well lit place for photography. One of the patrons last night (@psedillo), took and tweeted this picture. There was probably a flash involved, and then probably an app such as Instagram or Hipstamatic. Anyway, this is cool and you never know when a fan or a friend will step up and do something cool for you, like take a great pic. And something like this can make for a nice advertising piece. The performer might even add it to their website or their next CD insert or cover.
