Next Entry

First entry! Woo hoo!

I could spend my first entry talking about things. But I won't. There's time for all of that stuff later.

I just got back from seeing David Byrne in concert. He was awesome. We missed a good chunk of the show...the tickets were misprinted. His band was pretty darn awesome. His bassist sang just about all the backing vocals as duets (and did so while playing a 5-string bass). He had both a drummer and a percussionist. And, right as we showed up, he added 3 violin players, a viola player, and 2 cellists. They added quite a bit to the quality and complexity of the music. If he's coming to your town, I highly recommend you fit in the time to check out this show.

And we had good beer. Mmm...beer.

Less topical stuff later.

David Byrne came to Pittsburgh a week or so ago. I considered seeing him, but didn't make it work out with finances and timing.

I am sort of terribly jealous. I love David Byrne. But concerts are usually too crowded for me, which is why I'm only *sort of* terribly jealous.

Re:
The 9:30 club was pretty packed. I had trouble seeing, and I'm 6'2". However, we got there late, so I suspect it was easier to see if you were there at an appropriate time. *shrugs* We'll know better next time, and call the club to check on show times.
