Late Night

I should have written this afternoon because we had tickets to a concert in Birmingham tonight. I told myself we'd be in plenty of time to do an update.
Well, it's 11:20 p.m. and we just rolled in. The concert was incredible. The opening act was Jason Towns Earle who is Steve Earle's son. His band was almost Rockabilly. They put out a really good sound with a female bass player and a fiddle player.
The headliner was The Swell. The group consists of Irish singer Glenn Hansand and Czech pianist Marketa Irglova. They were in the independent film "Once." Jilda and I saw the movie last year and it blew us away.
This is the first concert we've attended in some time and it was well worth it. The venue was the Alys Stephens Center for the performing arts in Birmingham It was designed as a music auditorium so the sound was incredible.
Anyhow, we both blissed out all the way home.
Have a great Thursday.
