Fraggle Rock

Fraggle Rock is the name of the basement apartment I live in. We just learned that the house above us was broken into two weeks ago.

(May as well mention it while I have it, since I seem to be actively destroying it.)

The fact that even though the boots I have for the play hurt my feet, I don't need to wear them more than a little bit. Having a small part is good!

Second chances.

The obvious song lyric of the night. After class (more on classes someday, maybe) I rushed off to Virginia to meet Marie at IOTA and see Erin McKeown. Rushing off was the first comedic error of the night, as I was under the impression that the venue was seated and would fill early, when neither of these were true. But we got to grab two of the very few bar seats, and the ones right by the stage. There was yummy food for good prices, and we got to watch set-up and sound checks. We had a copy of The Onion and stories to tell, and Marie had me to make fun of, and we had a good time.

The opening band, The Proclivities, was so-so but solid, and for the most part they improved as they went on.

Erin was fantastic, of course. It was a different show from her, as she played us "about 70%" of the songs from her not-yet-released album, which was pretty cool, and had some time left for older stuff. Apparently Erin is going through a rough patch, because we got some pretty emotional numbers, including breakup songs both old and new. There was also a little block of classics, including Rhode Island is Famous For You, White City, Blackbirds, and more. White City deserves special mention, because I requested it before the show. Erin started it with a warning that she didn't remember it all, and in the end it was the line "heights of greatness" that she had forgotten. After she asked for help, and I provided it, she obliterated the rest of the song, ending it by leading the entire audience in a surprisingly good three-part round using bits of it. It was beautiful.

The final fiasco occurred when I skipped the encore to get to what turned out to be the second to last train of the night. Doh! But it was a great night.

It occurs to me that I did not make a gratitude post this morning. Didn't even make it a week! Seriously though, I just didn't have time to post. These posts are half to maybe shape my day and half to have something to look back on (hence the tags), so there isn't necessarily a point to doing them just to do them. I will try to make gratitude posts when I can. Tonight I have two things, which are both pretty obvious:

Music. In my first year of law school I lost track of music a little, especially live music, because I was in a new place and meeting new people and a little overwhelmed. This year, I hope to continue the reversal of that trend.

and

Marie. Not really a lot to say here, except to point out that this was the Last Concert for the two of us before her departure. We will both go to lots of concerts in the future, maybe even together sometimes, but this is the immediate end of a series of excellent outings that have occurred on-and-off for two and a half years. So I am thankful for Marie, my concert companion, event suggester, tireless mocker, and dear friend.
