Sometimes, the bands that play at 323 are pretty good. Occasionally they’re not. Usually though, they’re just nice background music to your dinner and drinks.
On Monday night, patrons at the Main Street restaurant had good reason to actually listen.
Aztec Two-Step — the folk-rock band that’s been a cult favorite since 1971 (!) — lugged their equipment, plugged in and played a full set.
It wasn’t totally random. Westporter Dodi Pettit married Rex Fowler — the band’s co-founder — in August. (Nearly 40 years ago, she played guitar and sang on their 5th album.)
Still, it’s pretty cool to have such a legendary group performing in such a down-home venue.
You never know what a restaurant’s Special of the Day will be, do you?
