review: “Agave Maria” from Lost Abbey

by Reviewer Rob

So I was at this cozy little neighborhood bar called Live Wire tonight, having an arty short glass of “Agave Maria” (like “Ave Maria”, the song?) from Lost Abbey brewery.

Its taste is strong and thick, like molassesey cough syrup with a hint of stale bong water. A bit more medinciney than I usually drink but I like it.

At first Matt said it’s like 7 or 8% but after doing some online research he came back and says it’s a 13.5 and that it’s “aged in Agave barrels”.

On another happy side note: Matt Strachota from BARTENDERS BIBLE, Live Wire bartender and Americana old-timey music style aficionado, will be headlining TOMORROW NIGHT, Wednesday, 1-11-17, at The Office (ye olde Scolari’s Office for you long-time SD barflys) for a dance-tastic night of Americana music where he turns the joint into “The Grande Old Office”.

Should be interesting and I plan on being there to take some photos. Then on Friday night, his other band BARTENDERS BIBLE with Matt Parker and Jason Corbin will play The Black Cat Bar in City Heights.

And it’s Friday The Thirteenth. So knock on wood before you step out for a drink and some great country-bluesy-bluegrassy type music. ~RR

Candye Kane Has Left The Stage


On Candye Kane

Reviewer Magazine shared Annie Sprinkle‘s post.

by Reviewer Rob

Noted San Diego Blues singer Candye Kane has died. In the late-1990’s saw her play at the Belly Up once and she really took control of the stage and lit up the house with her big smile. I was up close during the show and while on stage during the performance she looked right at me and held eye contact while she said a comment about working hard to make more money to spend on partying and drinking in bars. I laughed because at the time I working every day and then going out shooting photos at night in the San Diego clubs but was telling people the exact same thing and knew that was a problem I had (youthful lack of self-control) but I was saying it jokingly like it wasn’t a fault. But for Candye it seemed like she was totally okay with it. That’s a committed person right there. Respect. ~Reviewer Rob

P.S.: I’d also like to say that her crossover status as a well-loved blues performer who gained fame AFTER being a porn star who started at barely legal 18-yearold status during the GOLDEN AGE OF PORN (up until the mid-1980’s) is amazingly impressive. ~RR

Saddened to hear that my bosom buddy, award winning blues singer and former sex worker Candye Kane (Candice Caleb) left her sweet body and has gone on to her next gig. She was the” toughest girl alive,” and kept pancreatic cancer at bay for years. Her Wikipedia page lists the many amazing albums she made, along with songs she wrote, as well as the many XX movies she appeared in. She played the piano with her large bobbies (a great performance art piece!), sang about being 200 lbs of fun, and bisexuality. She will be missed by so many fans, friends, and her devoted grown children and family. Thanks Candye for years of inspiration and sexy fun. You did a lotta good in the world. Rest up.
