One for the Road: Andre Williams and the Sadies

Whenever the Sadies are in town it's a safe bet that Mekon Prime Jon Langford will take the stage for a short three song set. If Langford's bandmate Sally Timms is in the audience, she might convinced to come onstage and sing a couple songs, as well.

And you can guaran-Goddamn-TEE that Andre Williams will blow up the set with a high-octane run through one of his signature songs: "Agile, Mobile and Hostile." This video was taken from a Sadies concert at Schubas in June 2008. even at his advanced age, Williams looks exactly as the song's title suggests.
