I mean it! Damn, I sometimes feel I need to break my jaw so that I won’t be able to eat. I guess I’d still be drinking too much beer so that’s not the answer afterall.
Singing, Friends And Photos, What More Could I Ask For (how about good beer?)
Last night’s Main Event was my friend Dejie‘s CD release party at the Red Chair. I spent an enjoyable evening hanging with (in order of appearance) Maigh (check her site for photos as I left my camera in the car and was too lazy to go and get it), her lovely friend Kim, some guy named Jonathon who apparently has seen every play on Broadway, and two of my favorite people in the world — Stacey and Andy, with an occasional appearance by Dejie’s friend Jennifer.
I had never visited Red Chair before. I was surprised by their (lack of) beer selection (far too limited for this beer snob) and menu (which was surprisingly good and fairly cheap). I’d go back for dinner, but given the establishment’s regular clientele it probably would have to be with a group. Not that there’s anything wrong with that…
My night was capped off with a fantastic performance by Dejie and some of her musician friends. Dejie’s music is about 180 degrees from the shows I list in my side galley. However, if you like the show tunes and standards, sung by a woman with much talent, I highly suggest you check out Dejie’s music.
So Many Shows, So Little Time
There are a few shows coming to Atlanta that I am on the fence about. One big reason is that some are at Ticketmaster venues and I really hate doing business with them. Can anyone give me advice on these?
- 19-Sep: Of Montreal (TBA)
- 26-Sep: Bloc Party (Tabernacle)
- 29-Sep: Decemberists (Tabernacle)
- 17-Oct: The New Pornographers (Variety Playhouse) — probably will go, if tickets ever go on sale
While I am at it, can anyone suggest an alternative website to Pollstar for finding out what concerts are coming to town? I am sick and tired of Pollstar’s allowance of popup advertisements. (I am using Firefox on Linux, but some dickhead developers found a way around their popup blocker).
Sadly the reason I need one is to remind myself that I should be eating for one. Who knows, maybe it will also help me stop drinking more than one beer as well. With this sort of crazy logic I might actually start losing weight…
Oooh, He’s A Little Runaway
I’ll be making my much heralded return to exercising tonight (weather permitting, of course). Care to cheer me on? Want to make sure I don’t order the bacon bleu burger with fries, or drink more than one beer? Then show up George’s bar in the Highlands tonight for the Wednesday night running. It is Wednesday today, right?
And now for some ideas stolen from LiveJournal…
Current Mood – Pear shaped. ‘Dunlop’ diseased. Headed toward becoming the next Dewberry.
Current Music – Sirius Satellite Radio, channel 26 playing Scissor Sisters — “Take Your Mama”
Website Of The Day – Poverty is real, find out more about the ONE campaign. I really wanted to post a website that matched wristband color to charity/cause/organization, but couldn’t find one.
Off to work….
