Oh -- I went to see Johnny Mack play at Tazza this evening. He recently hired CMonti as his bass player, and Chris thought he might be playing bass tonight, though he wasn't sure. In the event, I didn't get to see Chris play, but I did see Johnny put in a solid (though still with a dollop of the chaos that Johnny tends to bring to his shows) set with another bass player, a drummer, and a fiddle player. Pretty cool!
(Chris is probably playing a few songs in the second set, but I decided sleep was a higher priority.)
