Hootie & the Blowfish

My wife was reading the other day in some free local magazine that Hootie and the Blowfish would be in town in a couple of weeks. Not at the Arena, or at some local club or other venue, but at the local Wal-Mart signing copies of their latest album (I didn't know they had one either). Now, I was never a big fan or anything, but it seems to me like only ten or so years removed from having a multi-platinum ablum and having several hit songs, you should still be able to get a better gig than a Wal-Mart parking lot. I guess we'll be seeing at least one of these guys on The Surreal Life soon.

UPDATE: Ok, so I looked it up and apparently they're going to be at the Wal-Mart in conjunction with a date at the Florida Theater. So I guess that's not so bad, except it looks like they're going to Wal-Marts all over the place, so I guess Wal-Mart owns them now or something.

One of the funnier scenes in Jerry Maguire, when the kid comes up to Rod Tidwell and asks, "Are you Hootie?"

That Hootie guy goes from hocking Bacon Cheddar Ranch burgers for BK to Wal-mart. Hope he's makin' serious cash.

One has to be able to make money somehow. I guess if one has a family to support...a gig at the Wal-Mart is as good as the next. It beats getting one's money from being a nation's leader that defrauds his people though...eh?

Wal-Mart owns everything.

Didn't Wal-Mart have the same type of deal with Garth Brooks when his live album came out?
