See us shaking

Posted by Katie Johnston Chase August 14, 2007 10:17 AM


Don't know what you're doing on Saturday night, but I'm going on my very first booze cruise -- er, make that my very first Rock and Blues Concert Cruise in the harbor. The Samples are playing -- a jam-band-flavored alt-rock band that takes me right back to my early '90s college days in Boulder. Sean Kelly's (above) high voice straining through "Feel Us Shaking" is like the soundtrack to those first years away from home: "I'd like to stay, but I couldn't stay with you. I have to go, I have a lot I want to do." I don't have it on CD, but I do have it on a well-worn mixtape. Sigh ...

If you have the same nostalgia for the Samples, go to rockandbluescruise.com for more information about Saturday's cruise. Maybe I'll see you onboard.
