GO GET YOUR BIG CHIEF

I was at Unified Indian Practice at the Handa Wanda club at 2nd & Dryades on the evening of Sunday, January 27, 2008, when I decided to whip out my compact Olympus 320M digital recorder and take down the proceedings, which were centered on Big Chief Little Bo of the Wild Magnolias, Big Chief Roddy of the Black Eagles, and assorted Indian singers who took over the mike from time to time in front of the massive drum choir on the stage behind them. I recorded again the next Sunday, when it was “Two More Days” until Mardi Gras, and then chopped the results down to an hour’s worth of Wild Indian music recorded in context just before Carnival Day.
