Last night after we played an online My Friend Lisa Show we hauled our asses out & to see Steph MacPherson & Michael Benard Fitzgerald play at the Biltmore. Man! What a great show! :) Steph MacPherson and her crew put on an awesome opening act complete with banjos! (everything is better with banjos) MBF also put on a stellar show! this was the first time I have seen him play live with a backing band. Previous times have always been him solo with a looper pedal. The double drummer thing he had going on was spectacular to say the least! I didn’t get to many (aright it was just one) photos of MBF mostly because I didn’t want to elbow my way up to the front, that and I may have been just a little drunk. :)
On the way home (thanks Shan for driving!) we stopped at the McDonald’s on Main street near terminal. What a horrible idea that was in so many ways. The first being that I hate McDonald’s & rarely eat it. In fact the only two times in the last year that I have eaten McDonald’s I was drunk coming home from the Biltmore. Curious :) However, that said what an awesome place McDonald’s is at 2am on a weekday. We somehow (I say we but really I mean Me) managed to offend a trollish woman to the point of leaving, eat a whole Big Mac on an empty beer filled stomach, and start up a random conversation with a sun glass wearing, (it was 2AM) safety vest clad, cart pushing, hobo who insisted that we invited him in to the McDick’s (which we didn’t do) and that he had a lot to add to our earlier conversation about E.T.s (which we didn’t have) In which he Insisted that Sarah Palin was in fact an E.T. and that given a moment or two he could prove it. We didn’t give him his moment, we instead left, quickly, after loudly clapping our (my) hands one last time in order to wake the odd man who was sleeping face down in the corner booth.
All in all it was a good night :)
Ya I know that I said that this wasn’t going to be the norm of this NaBloPoMo but yup, I am busy so you get old recycled content! From the Patrick Watson Show that D & I went to at the now defunct Richards on Richards.
So Darren & I went to see Art Brut Rock out at the Biltmore! It was fun. These photos are not nearly as awesome as the ones that I took at Richards On Richards a few years back but they are OK. The Show on the other hand Royally kicked ass. It helped that I was 2 feet away from the band. Despite the group of drunken, barely of age, hipsters girls wearing large framed 80′s spectacles with the lens pop’ed out that were bound and determined to bounce me out of their way.
It was here that he started telling us that we should form a band. I wanted to yell back that after the Richards On Richards Show in March 2006 we did. this was the Show that made Darren & I start our musical exploits that resulted in My Friend Lisa
I heart these Cuff links. I want Cuff links that say my band name :)
I was so bloody close to the guy! I sorta wished at the time that i Had brought a 24mm lens. I am glad looking at these that i stuck with the 50-1.2
