'09 was fine! That's my chant for the end of the year. Here's what happened in personal music in '09:
I went to three of the Riverfront Times top ten concerts: Guster/Live on the Levee, Coldplay, and Leonard Cohen (Number One! Number One!)
Pete Seeger led a group singalong of "This land is your land" at the inauguration
Gary missed a five-day long concert because he forgot his passport
Steven Page left BNL
Bought a steel drum, which is currently doing double-duty as a sock catcher.
Big Red G concert
All American Rejects concert
Elton John / Billy Joel concert
Carbon Leaf concert
Bought a bass
Watched Mama Mia, horrible
Leonard Cohen concert announced
Nothing! And it was my birthday month and all. Tellingly, this is the month I got sick.
Lions of Hazelwood concert
BNL in Vegas
Leonard Cohen concert
Bruce Hornsby concert
Cowboy Mouth concert comes in just under the wire. This must be one of the few times Gary and I have left the house on NYE. I think the last time was during the Y2K turnover when he had to go to work.
Clearly, I need a monthly concert. BNL is on tour this coming year, so that'll be handy.
