Live at the Spotted Cat: CD

After many years of performing, we decided to do a recording that represents us live. The only place to do it was The Spotted Cat in New Orleans. We've been playing there every weekend since February 2002. This is us live, no overdubs, studio tricks, etc. So if you can't see us live somewhere, put this CD on and start the party!
