Don't Ever Get Sick
The Metro show was AWESOME last night! And not just because we got a little table upstairs, which was such great luck and our reward for getting there early. It was fun to watch people come back to the area we were in, all excited-looking thinking there were tables, only to realize that the remaining seats were all "reserved." Suckas. Like there would be an empty seat halfway through the show that nobody had discovered? We met two youngsters in line to get in, they were adorable and reminded us of how old we were. I personally thought the chick wearing the Tigger fleece headband, no makeup, and who talked about going to House of Blues to see Hanson was super-cool.
- The M's - I love them. This is the first time I have seen them live because I don't really go out much anymore, but I was just so impressed! They sound like their CD, and everyone takes turns and shares the singing. Yay, M's!
- Rogue Wave - I love them, too. I like the fact that they are all 100% average looking guys and I like their sound a lot. The only weird thing was that they did a lot of "OK now the keyboard guy's going to play drums and the lead singer will play keyboards" - it didn't seem that necessary. It reminded me of the onstage antics of Melochrome, who did that a lot.
- New Pornographers - YAY! They are great, even with no Behar (and therefore no Jackie dressed in cobras.) Neko Case pulled it off, and I felt good about the fact that our ticket revenue was going to pay the bass player's medical bills from when his appendix burst.
On the way home, in the cab, we passed two guys standing on the front lawn of one of those mansion-like homes on Wilson east of Western - one guy was puking and the other guy was like, holding him up to help him lean on the tree whilst he barfed. It made me not so envious of those homeowners. Can you imagine puke on your front lawn instead of the garden variety dog crap that's all over?
OK, back to being sick. Scratch's friend is coming over to play Axis & Allies, while I lay around and read, and maybe make a celery hat for Scratch (see knitting pictures below.)
