Socrates didn’t have to look around to see the boarded-up businesses and stores; the poor black faces and brown faces of the men and women who didn’t have a thing. Iula’s diner and Tony’s garage were the only working businesses on that block.

And he hated bringing bottles and cans to the Ralph’s supermarket on Crenshaw. To get there he had to walk for miles pulling as many as three grocery carts linked by twisted wire coat hangers. And when he got there they always made him wait; made him stand outside while they told jokes and had coffee breaks. And then they checked every can. They didn’t have to do that. He knew what they took and what they didn’t. He came in twice a week with his cans and bottles and nobody ever found one Kessler’s Root Beer or Bubble-Up in the lot. But they checked every one just the same. And they never bothered to learn his name. They called him “Pop” or “old man.” They made him wait and checked after him like he was some kind of stupid animal.

— Walter Mosely, Always Outnumbered, Always Outgunned

As doubtless you will note, with the merest gloss of what lies south of this sentence, still another stellar (given prevailing circumstances) Saturday night at the Purple Bat Lounge has been documented for your listening pleasure. Though ‘stellar’ might not be the most appropriate descriptor to quantify DJ Lee-Roy’s interaction with bartender/dominatrix LaWanda through much of the evening. It’s kind of a story. I’d say you had to have been there but now you can be, in the comparative safety of your own home. G’head, click down below and hear for yourself…
