Announcing a new Meetup for Austin Objectivists!

What: Bobby Whitlock at the Saxon Pub

When: Sunday, June 6,[masked]:00 PM

Where:
Saxon Pub
1320 S Lamar Blvd
Austin, TX 78704
[masked]

There is a generation (and I'm in it) of whom you can assume at least a passing knowledge of every track on the Derek and the Dominos' 1970 double album "Layla and Other Assorted Love Songs". According to wikipedia this album "is often regarded as Eric Clapton's greatest musical achievement". Following are links to some of the 12 tracks on the album, along with the composers.

Bobby Whitlock, one of the Dominos, is playing at the Saxon Pub Sunday, 6/6, at 6:00 p.m. for $10...a pittance compared to the value of the show. He may or may not be accompanied by Coco Carmel, but he said last Sunday that he'll be doing more songs from the Layla album in the upcoming show. I don't expect him to perform Layla, but I've seen him do the first three songs below in Saxon Pub shows, and the rest I threw in FYI. Enjoy and I hope to see you Sunday! Be prompt...Bobby will be.
