The National Parks (September)

The National Parks (September)

So my work buddy Joe and I were feeling old (even though he’s like 15 years younger than me, so take that as you will) and decided we needed to find a concert to go to. A band he likes, The National Parks, were playing at the Songbyrd near GWU, so we decided to get tickets! We went early enough … Continue Reading →

ELO Concert (July)

In July, Doug and I went to go see ELO in concert in DC – I was really excited to see Jeff Lynne’s ELO since I love ELO’s music. And he’s also a Wilbury. AND George Harrison’s son Dhani was opening for ELO. I enjoyed the show? But I wasn’t wowed like I expected to be. I had one friend … Continue Reading →


What I Was Up To – September 2018

Moving on to September, I feel like we’re dangerously close to actually catching up! Freshly back from our trip to England, we had Stephanie babysit for us, while Doug and I checked out First Aid Kit (prob my fav band right now) at the Anthem, a newish venue in DC. It’s totally hipster (you can get lattes) and I am … Continue Reading →


What I Was Up to – January 2017

On to January – I’m only 7 months behind, I can still catch up, right? Doug and I headed to National Harbor for dinner. Baby! We met Janine and Ron for dinner – in DC at Zengo. I believe Diana and her husband joined us too. We didn’t manage a group photo, but we did get our twinsie Rey boots: … Continue Reading →


The Return

Just a short post with a couple of pics from seeing The Return last January. Always love a chance to see the guys, though we ended up not being able to work out dinner again. At least the weather cooperated this time – I managed to miss them plus a makeup show because of ice! I didn’t have a great … Continue Reading →


What I’ve Been Up To – July, Part 1

I’m way behind on pretty much everything, but here are some July pics, because I have to start somewhere! With Amber and Jody – two smart and awesome ladies who also work on JWST! We had lunch to talk about outreach stuff! My friend Unni sent me a care package from Norway and it had this nice, mild brunost (brown … Continue Reading →


What bands have you seen the most?

Our friends Kevin and Jenna are very big BNL fans now – and I was the one who got them into the band. The best part is they took it and ran with it and while my fandom waned a bit, they went on 2 or 3 BNL music cruises! Which we did not go on, but at the height … Continue Reading →


Barenaked Ladies, Baltimore Arena, 2001

So here is something I never blogged about here because it happened a long time ago – and also all my pics are film. It was pre-digital and also I didn’t want my camera getting confiscated just in case, so I bought a point and shoot disposable camera. Worked out really well! And thank goodness I had a camera! Here … Continue Reading →


Fleetwood Mac Concert

So Doug and I saw Fleetwood Mac at the Verizon Center last Friday. I’d never seen them before but with Christime McVie touring again, I really wanted to see them! And when they added a second DC show (I couldn’t make the first), I splurged on good tickets. We ended up in Row V on the aisle, which ended up … Continue Reading →


Greensboro Adventure, part 2 – Paul McCartney

So when I last posted, we were going to try to surprise Janine with Katie’s appearance at the Paul McCartney concert. Despite the fact that there were multiple pay lots near the Colliseum, somehow we ended up in the same lot. We hid Katie behind everyone else, and Janine walked towards us apparently thinking “why are they all just standing … Continue Reading →


First Aid Kit

We were lucky enough to get a second chance to see First Aid Kit recently in DC. They played at Lisner Auditorium at GW University in DC. I was able to snag 4th row seats so we had a pretty good view, though not as close as we were for the 9:30 Club. A lot less standing, which was good … Continue Reading →

A while ago (after a tortured ticket-buying experience, wherein advertised pre-sale codes were withheld, except for a secret fan club few people seemed to know about, but wof hich I am now a member) I bought Neil Finn tickets for the Lincoln Theater in DC. Oddly, they were general admission. This is odd because the Lincoln Theater has seats, unlike … Continue Reading →
