What Are You (Woo) Doing Here (Woo)?

Tuesday, June 3rd, 2008

Yesterday I filled in on bass with Aric’s band, Divebar (minus Aric, who was in Washington.) The show was outside of Cellular Field playing for White Sox Fans as they came to the ballpark. Despite having to kill 2 hours with 90 minutes worth of material and my lackluster bass skills, we had a good time and the show went pretty well.

Our sound guy — a friend from another band — said when they played the same stage, Ronnie Woo Woo showed up. Sure enough, about halfway through our set he showed up for us too. He was probably our best fan, singing along with songs he didn’t know and dancing around. Ladies would dance with him briefly while their boyfriends took pictures. Guys in Sox gear would pose giving his Cubs outfit the thumbs-down while their girlfriends took pictures.

As we were packing up, the lady who booked the show came by to say thanks.

PROMOTIONS LADY: I just wanted to let you know that you were really well-received.
KELLY: Ronnie Woo-Woo seemed to like us.
PROMOTIONS LADY: (A little upset) Oh, he was here again? He comes here a lot.

I don’t know if the Sox folks don’t like Ronnie coming around because he’s so associated with the Cubs (and came dressed in a full Cubs uniform) or just because he can be a little annoying.

PROMOTIONS LADY: I guess he just really likes baseball.

On the way home Kelly asked if Ronnie Woo Woo has a Wikipedia entry. He does.
