Musically giving thanks
I am thankful for too many musical things to list here, though initially that is what I intended to do in this entry. Instead, just a few things from the last week or so:
-Parties at The Cedar put on by local brass band The Brass Messengers complete with stilt walkers, roller girls and costumes.
-Nomo's existence (check Mama E Dub's report on their Cedar appearance that she wrote just days ago)
-Seeing Russian Circles with coworkers who dance the polka afterwards
-Listening to a friend's punk record at hyper speed while dubbing tapes
-Being asked to teach someone to read music
-Being asked, "Is this Burl Ives [playing]?!" while watching Fantastic Mr. Fox and being able to answer, "Yes, I believe it is."
In a couple days I may be able to ad "seeing Fool's Gold and Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros" to that list, but will be for another entry.
