AROTR 2008 – Monday

Monday was the last day – we watched a friend of Janine’s play guitar – he was awesome! I thought of Joe, because he played a bit of flamenco!

AROTR 2008 – Sunday

On the 9th floor, when the doors of the elevator opened up, this was the view. Only at a Beatles convention!

AROTR – Saturday, Part 2

We met up with Laura today, which was great – she took us to an awesome Louisville joint for dinner called Lynn’s Paradise Cafe – the restaurant had all kinds of kitschy decorations – it was really cool. I had a fried green tomato BLT. It was yummy. ETA: In 2012, Laura took her own life. It’s really sad to … Continue Reading →

AROTR – Saturday, Part 1

We spent a lot of the afternoon gardening – putting in some vegetables we bought at a local place, and I planted the cosmo seeds I’d saved from last years plants. We also bought a small rose bush and a rhododendron – I’m not sure … Continue Reading →

Crowded House at the 9:30 Club

Tonight I saw Crowded House at the 9:30 Club and it was AWESOME! I love the 9:30 Club – it’s small, with a balcony, and no seats. So you get a really personal show, tickets are cheap, and if you’re in the front of the floor, you’re literally like 7-10 feet away from the band. There’s not big gap between … Continue Reading →
