The Svens - Pendelton Show at Bombs Away Cafe

It was a pretty amazing Svens show at Bombs Away in Corvallis, Oregon (Saturday, May 21, 2011 aka "The End of the World As We Know It"...right!).  What a festive and fun audience - they really kept the band going...we pretty much played until it was useless (as Zappa might say).  Moods were light (in-spite of the absurd threats of doom and gloom, which never happened) and a great new story, Pendelton, was unveiled, wonderfully told by Viking.  Sven (and I'm talking "the" Sven, aka, Mike Rhodes) played his final gig with The Svens (but don't worry, he's done this before and he'll be back someday soon!) and that made it all extra special.  Here's Billy May's "Green Hornet Theme" or as we call it:  The Green "Flugel" Hornet:

The Svens are Viking (leader, guitar, narrator, sound clips), Saxy (sax/flugelhorn), BasSven (bass), StickySven (drums), Sven (guitar/keyboards)
