Last night I went to see Paul & Storm from Da Vinci’s Notebook with We’re About 9 opening at Iota. I’d already seen We’re About 9 several times, so I was ready for them. What I wasn’t ready for was the new P&S songs. I brought Dave and Carl along (Carl’s here for the week from Minneapolis) who were completely unfamiliar with them, and they were doubled over laughing as often as I was. Although the consensus was “My Maggot Baby” was funny, then not funny, then a little funny, then unfunny. The show was great, and I listened to their new CD on the way home. I loved the commentary tracks, definitely “chock full out of value”.
Friday, LRS and dada are playing Friday Night Live. I love their songs “Dim” and “Dizz Knee Land”. Hopefully I’ll be up to it after the farewell lunch for me & Aditya at Ned Devine’s, but I’ll show up late at least (it is free).
Sunday we’re checking out the Dave Matthews Band for the first time in two years, and I’m really psyched. They’ve got five new songs (that I just burned to a CD), and the set lists for the tour are looking sweet. Actually we’re catching them Sunday at Nissan and Wednesday at Merriweather. Galactic opens both shows.
Man, I can’t believe how much crap I’ve got on this computer at work I want to bring home – not to mention how much time it’s taken because some idiot had the bright idea to include CDs with most of the wedding invitations.
I’ll hopefully head home before 9.
