Tales of the Wild Wooly West with Davy Jay Sparrow – Episode 2

Our good friend Davy Jay Sparrow hipped us to the fact that, in addition to entertaining adults of questionable moral fortitude in the honky tonks of these here United States, he’s also entertaining the bright shining youth of this fine nation with his new web-series “Tales of the Wild Wooly West.”  As we all know readers of PE to be especially potent, we imagine more than a few of you out there have little ones who could use a little education in the history of the last American frontier (not counting Alaska and Hawaii).  Or maybe you’re just a kid at heart who likes a good story.  Either way, pull a log up to the campfire and enjoy the yarn spinning.

Frank Turner @ Calgary Folk Fest

Nothing says bad-ass like a tiny texas tattoo

As we noted in yesterday’s Stars post, we haven’t been posting much because we were up in Alberta at the Calgary Folk Festival having a grand time.  Most of the grandness came from hanging out with our old pal Frank Turner and blowing all of our souvenir money on booze.  It was not all for naught however as we captured some sweet video of FTHC.  Below are three vids.  One from the main stage, one from his side stage appearance the next day and one from the back yard of some kids on the north side of Calgary who gave us a party and enough Pilsner and Jameson that we don’t remember any of their names.  Good dudes and dudettes though.
