devils' food

The Savannah Civic Center offered up the usual concession stand food; but thanks to derby promotions, we were served a more original and tasty fare last night as the Savannah Derby Devils took on the Richmond County (SC) Regulators.  From championship bbq to a full bar to free candy, there was something for everyone in the largest crowd ever for a Savannah bout.  It was fun to have my buddies Will and Ken there for their first live derby bout.  Will caught on quickly.

The BBQ General was gracious enough to set up a tent in the civic center and hand out free samples of his bbq and his "most excellent" world famous sauce.  One taste of Mr. Wiley's and you'll understand why he has so many cookoff trophies on the wall of his Wilmington Island restaurant.

Free Candy for dessert.
Self-described as "Psychobilly, Rockabilly, Alternative, Punk, Surf, and Garage Rock all rolled into obnoxious, costumed craziness" which really also describes everything related to the whole derby experience.

The after-party was at Congress Street Social Club, but since JC and I had stopped off to listen to Josh Maul at Molly McPherson's we missed the free pizza.

Felony Melanie sings "Total Eclipse of the Heart" to her adoring fans.  Another highlight was Irene singing "Rock You Like a Hurricane" in honor of the current hurricane Irene.
Next Bout:  September 17

Please pardon the cell phone photos.  There's no excuse for this.
