I did make it to the Chris Cornell concert at Stubb’s the other week. I enjoyed it, although it was a late night and Tuesday hurt. I also cut my finger trying to crush a can into the recycling bin. Grrr.
Last weekend, my friend Chris wanted to know if I wanted to see the Plain White T’s at Antone’s. I like a couple of their songs and it was only $20 so I was in. Danger Radio, from Seattle, opened. They have a very cool tech streak and really enjoyed themselves. Not bad- even though the set was only about 45 minutes. The Plain White T’s are also a pretty fun band- they did a three part show calling a “Three Part Harmony” where they separated their sets into a intro set, an acoustic set, and then a final set. We were out by 11pm and back to my house well before midnight. The next day didn’t hurt as bad.
There were more kids there then I could count. Tons and tons of 16 year olds. Another friend described it as “almost as bad as a Switchfoot concert”. I can’t disagree.
The Gaslight Anthem is playing at Antone’s later in the month. Tickets are cheap too. I saw them on Dave Letterman awhile back and do got the album off of iTunes, so I will probably try and make that one.
This weekend is the Masters. I got to watch/listen to a bunch while I worked at home yesterday but won’t get to see much today. I certainly will be watching Saturday and Sunday. I don’t have any Easter plans, but will probably do a Sunday dinner. Saturday night is Blue October at Stubb’s. I have seen them a couple of times live now so when I heard this concert was coming up I was on it. They are doing two sold out nights here in Austin- so you know it will be crazy downtown.
Oh, and Sunday is also Mom’s birthday. Happy birthday Mom!
I got a Nokia E71 yesterday. Time to jump on the smart phone bandwagon and I didn’t want a new contract to get an iPhone. It has G3 Web, GPS, Media Player, an Radio, and does WiFi. I like it so far. Hopefully I like it a lot because it wasn’t cheap.
