On Friday, I took KFP to a concert at the Twentieth Century Club in Lansdowne. My outgoing little guy made friends with an older girl who treated him like a cute younger brother. So sweet!

Unwigged & Unplugged

Last night, my husband, The Gryphon, and I saw Spinal Tap in the Keswick Theatre. They were on their "Unwigged & Unplugged" tour, where they were playing acoustic versions of their songs, along with songs by The Folksmen, the folk group followed in the mockumentary, A Mighty Wind, directed by Christopher Guest. Since it stars a lot of the same people, the movie is considered a cousin of Rob Reiner's famous rock mockumentary, This is Spinal Tap.

See Me, Hear Me

When we were in high school, my brother owned a lot of albums by The Who [SITE HAS MUSIC]. He let me listen to them, which I did frequently. I loved how their music blended pure rock with both silliness and a poet's sensibility.

So when I learned they were coming to Philly, I suggested that my husband, The Gryphon, and I go. The concert was Sunday at the Wachovia Center, in the same complex as a World Series game between the Phillies and the Rays.

Metronomic Underground

The driving drums and keyboards fueled my movements as I bounced up and down, back and forth to the space lounge sound of Stereolab. Red, blue and yellow lights flashed, punctuating the music. I could see the lights through my eyelids as I let the music carry me.

The evening was ending much better than it had begun.
