Here's To Bobby Too Tuff

Word comes now from local blues professor Steve Balkin that Maxwell Street blues legend Bobby Too Tuff will be feted on Sunday on the occasion of his 80th birthday.

The party will be held at the Polk Street Pub from 5 p.m to 9 p.m. House band Lowreen and the Maxwell Street Market Blues Band will provide the entertainment, with "a lot of legends from the old Market sitting in."

If you're unfamiliar with Too Tuff, here's a little taste:
