A roundup: Happy Good Friday!

Nothing much happening tonight... a bit tired and fingers are hurting too much for now to continue on the cello, so gonna pour some hot tea and surf around for a bit before going home to spend the weekend...

The Sadies at the Dakota

While looking around the net, I stumbled on to the Dakota site and saw an unannounced Sadies show Wednesday night... I found out around six, and the doors opened at nine... Perfect timing after the Future Bikes show. The Sadies did not disappoint, starting at around 10:30 and didn't finish until after 2... with two breaks in there. With the short notice I ended up going alone, but K.B. showed up just before the second set and helped me take a few of the almost 600 shots I came home with... a few below... I love this camera and I'm so happy I went with the Nikon cuz I don't think these low-light indoor shots would be possible without it.

Highlights included There's a Higher Power, First Inquisition pt. IV, and I Still Miss Someone. They play again at the Horseshoe on the 30th, and I wouldn't mind attending... they are fantastic, live and on record.

Went to a party last night, everybody showed up tight, drinking wine and having fun, everybody came undone...

The future bikes

I went to the Future Bikes exhibit at the Steam Whistle Brewery on Wednesday... Here's a sampling of the art.. it runs through May 5th.
