A.A. Bondy

Nobody remembers if Gladys Broussard won the bingo game by going across or down. She might have even won by going diagonal, which has always been kind of like cheating to me. Anyhow, they had to give her the prize: two 33 and 1/3 long playing albums. The first was a Kiss record. They looked awful, very dangerous. The other album was the Village People's Cruising. It had a few men on the cover, relaxing on their toys. One had a big bulldozer, one an army jeep. Of course, the troublemaker had himself a chopper.

Gladys knew exactly what she was going to do with them. She gave this Kiss record to the Pegue boys who lived down the street and who were always getting in trouble. They couldn't drive the family's one working car in or out of the driveway without screeching the wheels and holding their middle finger up at their siblings left on the front porch. The Pegues played the record for about a month straight. Then it was stolen by the neighbor boy behind them. That boy was always lighting fires and torturing animals. Can't believe what he confessed to. We don't talk about him. His parents were always in church and they kept clothes spotless.

Thank god Gladys sent her grandson Cruisin.' Otherwise, he might have ended up like some kind of weirdo, dressing up in some crazy costume pretending to be somebody he's not.

ENDERNESS, A.A. Bondy's first album in eight years was finished the day before a wildfire burned his house down. He recorded and played everything himself.

We’re all in this together.
All of us are constantly monitoring the ever-changing situation with regard to COVID-19. As part of the community, we’re sad that we can’t do what we do best…host some great nights of live music. We know what an emotional uplift music provides at times like this. But what’s most important for right now is for us to follow all guidelines regarding large gatherings -- mandated or recommended -- until we are told it’s safe to re-open. We need to do our part as good neighbors to help lessen the impact of the coronavirus. Right now all of our shows through the end of May are officially postponed, but governmental timelines at all levels are constantly being reassessed, so unfortunately ours remains fluid while all of this progresses.
We’re still hoping that we are able to reschedule as many of the postponed events as possible, so hold onto your tickets! They will be valid for rescheduled dates. We know you have questions about refunds for rescheduled shows, and we’re working through that too. We’re in uncharted waters, so give us a minute and continue to check back here for more info as we have it; this is where we will be making any announcements. Hang in there and stay safe, everyone. We miss you all and can’t wait to see you again!
