Simien sizzles while

Guy

lays

backn

BY BRIAN BONET
Without question, the rowdiest back-to-school bash
took place downtown at the Blind Pig Thursday night.
An unlikely place considering all the front porch
partying and wasted wandering that takes place each
new school year? Not if you consider the hosts for the
evening - zydeco demons Terrance Simien and the
Mallet Playboys.
Terrance Simien, a 22-year-old accordion player and
vocalist from Mallet, Louisiana, has assembled the
hottest thing to come out of bayou country since extra-
spicy jambalaya stew. To date Simien and the Play-
boys have yet to release an album, but have released a
single, "You Used To Call Me," featuring Paul Simon
on backing vocals (Simon discovered the band while
researching zydeco music for Graceland) and have two
songs on the Big Easy movie soundtrack.
Thursday night, Simien and Co. treated Ann Arbor
to a little Louisiana cooking of their own - zydeco
style: Regional French dance music that is a free-
wheeling potpourri of rowdy blues, accelerated
accordions, percussive washboards, and funky bass
lines. Needless to say after a three-course, er, three-set
meal (three and one half hours long), everyone left with
full bellies.
-If you are ever in the vicinity of a Terrance Simien
sh6w, do not miss it. You will dance, you will sing,
ybu will sweat, and you will leave smiling. The
Payboys boast an energetic rhythm section which
inludes rubboardist Earl Sally (a rubboard is a metal
t'rast plate with the surface of a washboard that is
ijAyed with spoon-like metal utensils). Sally's playing
a nd stage presence was frantic and simply did not allow
feet to stand still.
oThe Playboys also boast guitarist Sherman
kobertson, who occasionally assumed the role of
vocalist (usually on their blues-oriented material) and
constantly played the role of entertainer, always grim-
acing and exchanging nods with the dancing crowd.
Sherman, who is also an inspired guitarist issued a
Wvarning during one bluesy solo. "If y'all see Robert

Cray, tell him a Louisiana boy is looking for him."
And people are looking for Terrance Simien and the
Mallet Playboys as well. According to drummer
"Chubby" Carrier, a debut album from the band is in
the near future, but first they have to choose among a
few interested record companies. Carrier said the band
almost signed a record deal with Alligator, but then
Polygram voiced interest and so did Warner Bros.
Still think Saturday night's gamenight guzzling was ,
the premature party hit on this crocked campus? Forget
it. Remember, you were listening to Brent Musburger.
Thursday night's Blind Pig crowd was listening to(
Louisiana lightning.
If you went to Friday night's Buddy Guy and Junior!'
Wells show with a desire to hear more of Wells than
Guy, you probably enjoyed the show. If you went to
the Blind Pig solely to see Buddy Guy, you were pro-
bably disappointed. With two great performers sharing"
the same stage for a midnight set that lasted about an
hour and twenty minutes, it's inevitably difficult, if
not impossible, to get your fill of both.
Guy began the show without Wells, and served as.
vocalist as well as master guitarist blazing through
frequent solos with ease and a smile. The stage was his,
and so was the crowd, singing and clapping "Baby
don't you want to go" (from "Sweet Home Chicago")i
and often voicing lyrics before they left Guy's mouth.,
The guitarist responded to the anxious crowd by teasing,
them with short riffs and an occasional shake of his
head, saying, "S-h-i-i-i-t."
But then Wells and his harmonica took the stage and
Guy's rapport with the crowd quickly deteriorated as hew
assumed a backing role as a rhythm guitarist with an.
occasional solo, while Wells dominated the stage.:
Wells' performance was impressive - he strutted
around stage with an attitude, hitting harmonica solos"
and voicing both tales and vocals to the crowd. But for,
Guy fans, seeing their man in a backing role for the,
majority of the set was frustrating.
