Pat's Weekly Diary: 10/26/2020
We had nothing this past week. But we do have something this coming week. The Topcats will return to Rock n Bowl on Friday Oct. 30 for a Halloween party. And yes… to answer the question… people will be allowed in… “And people will come, Ray. They'll come to Rock n Bowl for reasons they can't even fathom. They'll turn into the parking lot not knowing for sure why they're doing it. They'll arrive at the door as innocent as children, longing for the past. "Of course, we won't mind if you come in and dance", you'll say, "It's only $10 per person". They'll pass over the money without even thinking about it: for it is money they have and peace they lack. And they'll walk into the bar on a perfect Friday night. They'll find they have reserved seats somewhere along the dance floor, where they sat when they were younger and danced to their favorite bands. And they'll watch the Topcats and it'll be as if they dipped themselves in magic waters. The memories will be so thick they'll have to brush them away from their faces. People will come Ray. The one constant through all the years, Ray, has been the Topcats. America (New Orleans) has rolled by like an army of steamrollers. It has been erased like a blackboard, rebuilt and erased again. But the Topcats have marked the time. (Check out the Chronicles Page of our website.) This band, these songs: it's a part of our past, Ray. It reminds us of all that once was good and that could be again. Oh...people will come Ray. People will most definitely come.” Hoping to see you there. Who Dat!!!
