Absolute Blue Invitation 11/17/16 - 11/19/16
Absolute Blue Givesthanking
So it was late and we were about out of options. We had run through just about every place we could think of. What with the tabasco fiasco at Chili’s, the melee at Chick-fil-A, the fling at Burger King, the funkin at Dunkin’, the hassle at White Castle, the scrape at Steak n Shake, the fray at Chipotle and the many rows at Domino’s we couldn’t find a place that would have us for Thanksgiving. We were acting peculiar at the brand new Carl’s Jr, had too many parties at Wendy’s and Hardy’s, crashed the computers at our local Hooters and were unable to get a pardon for that time at Olive Garden. So imagine our surprise when the Yearty’s invited us over, provided we brought a dish to share! We were so thrilled that we penned the following to commemorate the event:
Over the river and with canned goods
To old Billy’s house we go
There’s no way to say what we’ll bring that day
It could be some Twinkies and Ho Ho’s
Might bring some liver through neighborhoods
Where we never thought we’d be
To eat with the few who like Absolute Blue
So it might be just you and me
An early holiday presentation for us as we have just one performance before then, which is this Thursday at The Avenue in Viera, from 6 to 9. We’ll be in the middle of the Quad, conveniently next to World Of Beer…

The votes have been counted and the results are in. It may not be what we expected but one must have faith in the system that has been put in place specifically for this purpose. Believe us, next time it will be different. At this point there is nothing to do but accept what is before us and move on as best we can. Sure, we can debate on many different levels how we got here, the internal logic that determined the course of the events or the actual strategy invoked, but those that are in disagreement need only wait until next time. We at Absolute Blue could take issue with a number of aspects but will remain steadfast. After all, Michigan at number 3 when they clearly have a strong case for 2 and Ohio State being shut out when the selection committee make a clear case for strength of schedule over record for non-ranked opponents? Boggles the mind…
It’s a double header at Keith’s Oyster Bar at Cocoa Beach Pier Friday and Saturday 6-10…
Then it’s our last SBI of the year, Sunday 1-5…
Absolute Blue Invitation 11/04/16 - 11/06/16
Absolute Blue Politicizes
This week we take on the subject that everyone’s talking about. But it will be the last time we mention this again. At least until next week. Of course we speak of the historical event that is imminent and will affect us all for years to come. But we have heard so much about it we don’t know what to think, resulting in what in only be called electile dysfunction. There are tuition hikes for the Electoral College. There is even an effort to redistrict farm land known as Dairymandering. Even the Jewish faithful have agreed in part to be rabbipartisan. The NRA is counting on the bullet ballot for their support which really puts the pain in campaign. It's not only a lame duck it's the same duck, when what we’re really looking for is a caucus that will rock us. Once again it’s the consistent constituency against the redundant incumbent. There is so much negativity between the participants that we call them Can’tidates. I mean, there is so much emphasis on the Poles, but what about the Lithuanians and Czechoslovakians? So say we as the infuriated unaffiliated…
This week we can be found at Squid Lips in Melbourne from 7 to 11 Friday…
Then Saturday, we take the stage at Siggy’s in Palm Bay from 9:30 to 1:30….
Absolute Blue Invitation 10/21/16 - 10/22/16
Absolute Blue Sustains
We met with climatologists, environmentalists, ecologists and some Hooters girls to determine the total footprint of an Absolute Blue performance. The goal was to remain diverse and productive indefinitely while minimizing what we actually had to do. Previously we tried carbon dating, but carbon only wanted to be friends. The result was a plan for sustainability and some very tasty wings. This required us to carefully evaluate the resources required by Absolute Blue and how these are transformed, however in attempting to measure the resulting by products we found that methane collection was not only exceedingly embarrassing but highly combustible and we also wound up with 5 gallons of sweat that has been classified as toxic waste. Other ways we are becoming resource independent:
-Absolute Blue only uses locally sourced, organic, free range notes with no antibiotics, except those routinely administered to the band.
-Words used by Absolute Blue, while seemingly random at times, can be used again and replaced with synonyms from Icelandic or Slavic based languages.
-To meet our ever increasing power needs, Kevin has configured a small but exceedingly dangerous nuclear reactor out of an old toaster, a few buttons and some mayonnaise, using the beef from a 7-11 burrito as fissionable material. We should be fine as long as the duct tape holds out.
-But by far the largest consumable sourced to the band takes the form of beer. To ensure we replace what is ingested we have developed a lumberjack inspired creation called Logger Lager, a pale ale created by our drummer we call a Billsner, a German heavy beer we call Kraut Stout and that most pedestrian of ales, the ambler bock. One thing’s for sure, we put the pee in IPA.
Make sure that you make plans with us this weekend as we take the following week off for personal reflection and Zoomba classes…
Friday check us out at Malabar Mo’s from 7 to 11…
Saturday we can be found at Tiki Bar and Grill in Sebastian, on Indian River Blvd, just south of Main Street….
