The English Beat keeps touring so I keep going to see them, apparently. Always awesome! Such great tunes and it was nice to see them mix up the playlist. The Showbox at the Market in Seattle is a great venue where you can get up close and personal with the band. I was there, front and center. The place was packed and it was obvious that everyone had a good time.

I got to see Natalie Wouldn’t, a local ska band, again last night at Darrell’s Tavern in Shoreline. So fun! Had a great time. If you live in the area and haven’t seen them yet, you need to.

I was able to see Janeane Garofalo last night at the Parlor Live in Seattle. It was quite the show. She is still as snarky and unique as ever. I enjoyed her rambling style as it made it a little less like a memorized joke delivery. She also came up with a fun phrase, “Don’t Febreeze me”, which refers to the unbelievability of the Febreeze commercials which depict obvious actors who claim to not be able to smell the bad odors of the situation since Febreeze was applied. Her phrase thus means she knows when she is being sold something/being deceived. Clever and smart. It was fun to see her.

I was able to see David Gray last night at Marymoor Park. Great show, great weather. It was really a nice evening.

I know it has been forever since I last posted. There were many legitimate reasons: Divorce, work projects, life. Anyhow, I’m mostly back to a more normal cadence, so I had a chance to go to a concert recently (finally). I saw Portugal. the Man and Grouplove at the Marymoor park in Redmond, WA. Again, great summer venue and yesterday was gorgeous. Portugal. the Man was awesome and Grouplove, who I like a little less than Portugal. the Man, was good too. Anyhow, I had a good time. The picture was my view of the stage from the lawn. Not up close but could see and hear everything just fine.

Had a good time seeing Blondie perform last night at the Marymoor in Redmond, WA (an outdoor venue). They rocked the old hits many of us love and some new songs I hadn’t heard yet that were also really good. Yeah she’s older now, but she didn’t show it in her performance. The night was a bit chilly but at least it wasn’t raining. Also, the X opened up for them, so it was a fun evening of older punk/new wave rock. I had a nice view but my phone camera couldn’t zoom in enough to get a good picture, so none attached.
