The dark circles on the wall are paintings done on 12" vinyl records (Bela Dubby is a cafe and gallery; it also serves beer). My favorite non-musical part of their set was during one of the segments where the saxes drop out and the guitar and drums duet. Darius Jones stood over by one of the walls in front of one of the record paintings, and it looked like he had a black halo...

Opening were the duo of Dan Wenninger on tenor sax and Nate Scheible on drums:

Rounding out the show was Mike Forbes (also of Tiger Hatchery and the Forbes/Young/Walter trio) on tenor and J. Guy Laughlin on drums:


Coming up at the same venue:
