Curtis Cottrell is THE shit

Notice the important semantic subtlety there. I generally fall into the category of A shit. Curtis is THE SHIT. As in, the MAN. See, there's a big difference. He has uploaded a ton of flyers to gigposters. They're mostly from New Orleans shows, but there are a few Lafayette ones. I completely killed our ripway bandwidth for the day uploading all the flyers, so here are some Lafayette ones. Two are from John's, which we think was the place that later became a transvestite club by the underpass on University, and the other is from Jerry's which was later Haricot's and then a Subway (sammiches, not a train). All of the flyers should be working sometime tomorrow at the flyer page. There are also separate pages for Baton Rouge flyers and New Orleans flyers. I resized many of the flyers that were already there and some of the new ones to save storage space, so if anybody wants larger versions, either check on gigposters.com or email me. There are probably more flyers on gigposters that I missed. (The site is not very easy to search.)

Curtis has links, poetry, and a great video clip of himself as a priest on his site. Check out the clip here. Jenkins said it's from some movie. We're not sure of the name. Curtis also sent all kinds of info on bands ranging from the 60's up to the 80's. Like Bernard said, he's like a Louisiana music encyclopedia. He even sent garage band photos from the LHS yearbook.

When Curtis comes to yo town, bow down.

I made the two flyers; Butthole Surfers and Marching Plague. . . Reality On Trial, was my band in the interim. . . between Toxin III and Otis. . . Danny Hall and Ricky Williams. . . were hangin' out at these shows. . . Danny witnessed me clothes-lining a guy. . . for knoking over the PA. . . Butthole Surfers show. . .

Was John's the place that was on the left shortly after you passed the underpass on University? By the time I heard of the place I'm thinking of, it was a transvestite bar. The Lafayette High football goon squad used to cruise by there so they could "kick some faggot ass, brah." They were such enlightened fellows.

Yeah. . . but it has always been a gay-transvestite bar. . . oldest one in Lafayette. . . used to be called C'est l'gere. . . "Thats war". . .

Had a cool 'dance hall' built on the back. . . we did all age shows. . . as the dance room was completely separated. . . from the bar. . . elevated-stage. . . plus two dressing rooms. . . Swank!

Because of the transvestites. . . the bands traveling through. . . thought Lafayette. . . had 'pretty' punk rock chicks. . .
