HotWingJones


DJ Caterina absolutely loves the wit and wisdom of HotWingJones, especially after reading a couple of their MySpace bulletin posts promoting their upcoming gig with Tommy Conwell at Gullifty's Underground:

Date: Nov 15, 2007 8:03 AM
Subject: Tommy Conwell, The Barnstormers, and HWJ
Just a reminder that HWJ will be appearing with Tommy Conwell and Quentin and The Barnstormers tomorrow night (Friday, November 16th) at Gullifty's Underground in Camp Hill.

I promise you that this show will kick ass. Tommy is one of the baddest-ass guitar players you will ever see anywhere...

Date: Nov 16, 2007 9:49 AM
Subject: Emergency Announcement

The owners of Gullifty's in Camp Hill wanted us to make an emergency announcement. Those of you with heart conditions, lower back problems, or are subject to the gravitational pull of the moon: you will need to step outside into the lobby when Tommy Conwell takes the stage tonight. Those of you who do not heed this warning are deemed to be proceeding at your own risk. Injuries to your legs, ears and asses may occur, resulting in permanent injury, heightened states of euphoria, or at least a sure fire trip to the emergency room.
For
the rest of you rowdy drunks and rebel rousers: TONIGHT!!!!!!

Tommy Conwell and the Little Kings T-Shirt

This weekend DJ Caterina was wearing one of her favorite T-shirts when someone in an elevator struck up the following conversation:

Guy #1: (Looking at DJ Caterina’s T-shirt) What does that say? Tommy Conwell and the Little Kings? Is that a band?

DJ Caterina: Yes, it’s an album cover.

Guy #2: Oh….

DJ Caterina: (Sensing a non-recognition of the Conwell name) He’s a guitar player based in Philadelphia.

Guy #1: Oh! Are you from Philadelphia?

DJ Caterina
: No, I’m from Texas. (Elevator door opens, walks out.) If you go to the iTunes [Tommy Conwell Store], you’ll find some of his music. Check him out!
Buy your very own Tommy Conwell and the Little Kings shirt at Café Press and Sunset Music Store.

(Note: As of 5/20/2008, Sunset Music no longer sells this t-shirt!)
