Metrojam

So thanks to these two guys...Bob and Tom...we have a very fun FREE music event every year in beautiful Washington Park downtown. It is so much fun and I always look forward to it. This year the headliner was the Knack. You know their song My Sharona. They were really good but I really liked the band that played before them...The Redwalls. When they announced the lineup a couple of months ago they also let us know that they were going to be on Leno soon. I stayed up late to watch them and was really impressed. I love their sound it is very different than anything out there. Unfortunately I forgot to get the CD that night but I am hoping my friend Jim at Dr Freuds has it there. Anyhow one of the perks of knowing those two guys above is that I got to sneak in and get my picture taken with the band. They were really sweet guys and they smelled good. I of course made a fool out of myself and said stupid things when I was talking to them but oh well.
After the music we went to The Riverbank. It is a fantastic little martini bar that is smoke free. It is nice to come home smelling like nothing. I had my first mojito. I think I like them. Actually I am thinking of having a mojito party for my birthday. Yum.

A good night all around...good tunes, friends, libations, weather, cigars, and the obligatory drunk-guy-at-concert-who-needs-an-ass-whooping ...what more could you ask for.

How's Glen's soul-patch coming along?

i must say, the dancers at the front of the crowd are typically nearly as entertaining as the musicians, particularly as the evening progresses. i almost peed my pants giggling at the full-body flailing during "my sharona". bless them.

Sounds like lots of fun and cool that you got to get up front and personal with the rocker boys :)
