A much needed day off

I have been so busy with paperwork, reading books and articles on tape for the kiddos to use for their research papers, getting ready for ITBS and grad class nightmares that I needed a day off!

It just so happened that the guitarist and bass player of Cracker were playing an acoustic concert last night at the Redstone Room.  We knew about it for a while and decided to make a go of it.  I took a personal day today just in case we didn't get home until late.

In a word the concert was awesome.  The sound was great, the setting small and intimate.  We were surrounded by aging hipsters and former college hippies.  We had the best time.  I took a short video clip of one of their more famous songs Low.

I was surprised at how reasonably priced things were too.  $15 for tickets and $15 each for drinks and tip.   Guiness for $3.50, AWESOME!  We are definately going to be looking for more concerts there in the future.

And happy early b-day to the hubby.  Last night was all my treat.

  2. Hey, that band is pretty good. I think I need a night of good music :)

  3. Hi from Fx4 and thanks for checking out my post today!

    Definitely try the cheesy olive bread - it's awesome! And if you like knitting, check out my Lizard Ridge project. I have to admit it is derailed at the moment, but it's going to make a grand comeback...one of these days, LOL! I truly love the pattern and look forward to completing the afghan.

    Happy weekend!

  4. Guiness? Did I read Guiness?

    I'll be right over.


Your input would be greatly appreciated!!!
