The John Sid Band @Bar 169, May 12th

Great way to close out the week -- caught kung fu classmate John Sid and his band play a small bar in the very lower Lower East Side called Bar 169. A ton of us came out to cheer on John, who sounded sharp as usual.

And now that this was my third time seeing John play, the songs sounded more and more familiar. Some of the other girls and I had a blast dancing our asses off in front of the band and screaming at the top of our lungs

At one point there was a tall drunkish asshole who loudly complained that John was "no Eddie Vedder" and that he "sucked" but then all of a sudden he had a ton of us kung fu people turn around and stare at him. If he only knew that we could have all caijiaoed his butt into oblivion. He's lucky that he caught us all in a good mood.

I think John's Band got the crowd going -- even the non-kung fu folks. A cute guy who I talked to for a bit compared John's singing to that of Jeff Buckley. Whoa!

All in all, it was a fun night, tho it got a little sticky towards the end, but I'll spare you the gory details...I'm just thankful that Ji was there to help pick up the pieces.

I'm glad I went. It is a night like this one that reinforces why I love USA Shaolin Temple. What handsome beautiful people we are!

And I trained the morning after too -- MORE CHI! TRAIN HARDER!
