Weekend Report

Well, it was a busy week­end, and I was look­ing for­ward to a qui­et Mon­day. I did­n’t get it, but it could have been much worse.

Fri­day night, my mar­velous fam­i­ly host­ed a birth­day par­ty for me. curiousmay9 and I stayed up way too late mak­ing music with mrp­syk­lops, but if we’d had the ener­gy we would have sung for many more hours.

Sat­ur­day night we went to Fid­dler’s Green for Mike Ray­burn’s year­ly appear­ance there. 

As usu­al, Mike was incred­i­ble. I thought mrp­syk­lops had seen him before, but I was wrong. The man was absolute­ly poleaxed. I believe his phrase was, “I did­n’t know god was going to be here tonight!”

The open­ing act, The Bril­liant Inven­tions, was also fun. Two young local guys, they have a sound that reminds me a bit of the Bare­naked Ladies. There were five peo­ple in our par­ty who live in two house­holds. Four copies of their CD went home with us.

Their song, “I Had a Dream About Your Girl­friend” is a must-hear for fans of Car­la Ulbrich’s “What If Your Girl­friend Was Gone.”

If you enjoy live acoustic music, you real­ly need to go to Fid­dler’s Green. I have nev­er, in $deity knows how many years, seen one bad show there. The acts are var­ied, and some aren’t what I would have cho­sen to go see—but if they’re in that venue, they’re worth hearing.

Sun­day was more bor­ing. Well, it’s bor­ing for you. I was quite hap­py with it, myself. Sam and I gamed, and I fin­ished clean­ing out our clos­et while he took the girl to her speed-read­ing class.

More about the clos­et when I have pic­tures to explain what a tri­umph that was. I’ll put today into a new entry.
