This Weekend: The Blues and Crab Legs

Afternoon drinks alongside the slowly gentrifying Nhieu Loc-Thi Nghe Canal.

Beer for the boys, Sinh To Bo (avocado smoothie) for me.

Brooklyn based singer-songwriter Shawn Waters @ DeciBel Lounge (79/2/5 Phan Ke Binh, Q.1).

Mr. Waters plays original compositions that showcase a unique, avant-garde take on the Delta Blues.  His visceral, baritone growls explore dark, relationship-based subject matter and leave the floorboards shaking at his most rousing moments.

Bad lighting, good blues.


DeciBel was also hosting an analogue photography exhibit by Nikki Bisenieks.  Great work by a former colleague of ours.

On Sunday night, a seafood feed @ Quan Oc Oanh in the sordid, bustling streetscape of District 4.

Spicy crab legs.

Raw oysters.

Ghetto-blasters are alive and well on this island.
