Paula Nelson is Kicking

On March 19, The Paula Nelson Band was performing their usual Wednesday night set when a patron approached the stage. Watch the video to see what happened next.

In all my years of attending shows, I don't think I've seen the band defend themselves, although I would like to see video of Pete Townshend hitting Abby Hoffman with his guitar at Woodstock.

This created some action last week, legendary Austin country station KVET and our friends at KGSR were talking about it.

... and by the way Sirius Outlaw Country added the record last week before all this came out, along with many other Americana folks.
