While we seek mirth and beauty and music light and gay

Musical update: None!

Week before last we missed this: Son Volt at Exit/ In (The kicker is that we actually HAD tickets and didn't go because it was a school night, and ALL the way downtown, blah, blah, blah, we're old, blah, blah, blah...

And, last night we didn't even bother fooling ourselves into buying tickets for Steve Earl (this video has some really good mama belly shots!), but of course I am kicking myself remembering how easy it used to be to go through life a little tired from dancing all night to some live music..

And, I am not sorry that I'll be missing this, though mom is going, and she can tell me all about it. This was my first CD. I loved it. Maybe if I'm ever in Jersey, I'll check out these guys instead.

Rock on dudes.

You are going to wish that you had gone too. I wish that I could take Friday off after I go "Down in a Blaze of Glory", but I guess I'll just have to "Keep the Faith". Maybe I'll spend the whole day Friday (Research Paper Turn-In Day) "Livin' on a Prayer." I'll "Raise my Hands" and hope that I don't get "Shot Through the Heart". "I'll Sleep When I'm Dead" and the "Blame It On the Love of Rock & Roll".
