My apologies for my lack of postings as of late! I've been seeing quite a bit of live music lately!

On Saturday, January 20th, Amber and I went to see the Subdudes, at Irving Plaza. The Subdudes are "originators of a gumbo of roots music that melds soul music, gospel music, Louisiana music, blues and good old rock!" (I borrowed that line from their website because its worded much better than I would have said it myself! They are five men in their 50's and 60's from New Orleans. They put on a great show! It was my first time at Irving Plaza and I have to say--the place was really full of some good, positive energy! One of the highlights of the show was when the band played "unplugged," in the middle of the audience. They unplugged their instruments and played totally acoustically. How cool is that?

This past Wednesday, I went to see two great bands play at Warsaw, in Brooklyn. Essex Green is a Brooklyn-based band thats play pop, reminiscent of the 60s. Camera Obscura is a band from Scotland that plays music with a mellow vibe which sorta reminded me of Jenny Lewis. The venue in itself was pretty cool. Warsaw in a live music venue inside of Brooklyn's Polish National Home. The place was crawling with hipsters!

My Whirlwind Trip to Louisiana

My loyal readers, my apologies for the lack of postings! Right before Christmas, I took off 3 days from work to fly to Louisiana for a good friend's wedding! On Wednesday, December 20th, I flew from Newark to Dallas, then Dallas to Shreveport on a tiny turboprop plane! Of course, I hit delays and turbulence but otherwise, made it in one piece! Wednesday night, once I arrived, was spent at the Olive Garden and Target, then chilling at Jaime's and Corey's apartment. Thursday was spent decorating the reception site...then the was Friday. It was a lovely ceremony and a fun reception, followed by some two-steppin' at the Rockin' Rodeo Bar! Saturday morning, I had a delightful breakfast at Shoney's with Jaime's uncle then once again, spent too long waiting out delays at various airports...But all in all, it was a lovely trip! Congrats Jaime and Corey!
