At Bass Hall

Another time my youngest brother invited me to an excellent show was in the winter of 2000 to see The Flatlanders at Bass Hall in Fort Worth. Joe Ely, Butch Hancock, Jimmie Dale Gilmore and the rest of their band gave a hell of a good performance, but another memorable part of that night was a couple sitting nearby so enthused by the performance that they could not resist commenting exuberantly throughout the show with complements like "Better than Jello Pudding".

Surrounding audience members were getting upset at the couple for their loud commentaries and kept shushing them. Jeff finally got fed up with the shushers and commented rather loudly that the couple making comments were "the most real people there".
