Holy my lordies!
I love Mike Geier! He's the monologist this week at Doug Dank. Push Push Wednesday at 10pm.$5
He's the giant guy who fronts the band Kingsized!
He works with the Dames Aflame
, as well. Excellent singer. He's married to one of the dames. The one who wears little clothing and the demeanor and mask of a monkey. It's pretty cool.
Mike used to operate a cuban restaurant at night
in Candler Park out of the Gato Bizco space which only does breakfast/lunch. He cooked me some damn good fish, black beans, rice, and plantains.
Here's some press from the kingsized site:
