Stupid Little Club
What song do you play to end a 10-year gig?
"Why does everyone drink at a funeral?" one longtime music head said to another Tuesday night, as the two bellied up to the Turf Club bar and ordered a couple of whiskeys. It was a good question, if slightly off the mark. For there was nothing remotely funereal about the party that took place on the intersection of Snelling and University in St. Paul, partly because the Turf is not being razed and music will still fill the room. And also because the people responsible for the era that everyone came to eulogize wouldn't have it.
