100th Post!!

Many thanks to those of you who have stuck it out to see my 100th post! It's not really surprising that I've been able to write so much, since I love to talk, and I love to talk about what I love. Here's to many more 100th posts! *clink*

Now let's talk about this Friday. It feels like summer -fest season already. You have five stellar shows to choose from, and that's just the first day of the weekend! Your choices:

Two for the Price of One!

I went to two shows last week, so you know what that means...PIC SPAM!

First, a few words about each.

On Wednesday, I went to see Leopold and His Fiction. I was super impressed! Their song "Golden Friends" is amazing and moody and sounds just as good live as it does here. Each of their three members has wonderful stage presence, so their show was engaging to watch as well as hear.

I bailed before Black Lodge took the stage...so I'll have to catch them soon.

Saturday I went to see a show at the Elbow Room, which is famous for birthday shows for people. This one featured Chris Bathgate, Greg McIntosh, Tim Monger and Drunken Barn Dance. It felt like everyone's birthday!

Midweek

I'm going to this tonight. I'm anxious to see if Black Lodge can slay me again, the way that they did at Blowout. I'm also interested in Leopold and His Fiction. They do this kind of dark, intense, crooner thing, and it's pretty intriguing.

Also, this Saturday, at the Elbow Room, Drunken Barn Dance is back in town! Let's carpool!

It's full disclosure time, folks. I've got a second job. I'm working part time at Green Light Go Publicity right here in Ferndale. It's music publicity. I don't doubt that I'm going to be exposed to a LOT more bands, which is good for everyone, right? Rest assured that this space will still be dedicated to (mostly) local music, shows I go to, and most importantly, the library and the community of Ferndale. You'll still see the things here that you always have, so don't worry!
