While the mood might have been sedate at the Bunkhouse following two excellent but downeriffic sets by ex-panda Louise LeHir and duo The Ku, a large bald guy I suspect may be an off-duty metro cop sure seemed to be having a great time. "Awesome!" the man screamed as The Ku's Lucas F. Johnson plugged away on his acoustic with a fancy antique lamp in the background.

"Hey," the guy screams, "Do you do any Neil Young songs!?" Johnson doesn't reply. Moments later the dude is helping carry out his gear. Weird guy of the night though he may be, a little help taking gear out of a venue is the best way to become friends with any band.
