i fight fire with words

random pieces of musical information

You can order Ani's documentary through RBR (here). I'm a fan and have added it to my wish list.

She's doing another solo tour this fall and will be at the Avalon, Friday November 22. Tickets on sale now. Should i go? I've seen her live solo once, and $35 is eek pricey.

Ooh, Christine Lavin is at Sanders Theatre October 12. That's the Saturday of Columbus Day weekend, so i'll be home anyway. I've already seen Christine Lavin live numerous times, but i love her live. And yay for $22/$26 tickets. Also, i think Sharon and Laura should come visit Boston, so if they came that weekend and went to the concert it would be fab. Any thoughts, ladies?
you think you know...

i'm just a fountain of pop culture this weekend

So i got my hair cut yesterday and it was not traumatic. It's a bit shorter than i had intended (my hair goes just below my ears) but it'll grow and i like it.

I figured out who my haircut reminds me of when i look at myself in the mirror. Buffy in the play in Willow's dream in "Restless." Yes, this is only because i saw that episode last Sunday. I also am reminded a little of Ramona. But mostly black-haired Buffy.

I went to church this morning, and numerous people complimented me on the haircut. Shannon said i was brave. :) I got at least 10 inches cut off, so i'm, sending it to Locks Of Love.

After my last post i decided to do some tour searching.

I learned that the Indigo Girls will be performing in Northampton September 17 (that's a Tuesday -- someone tell me Buffy Season 7 won't have started yet; taping episodes is such a hassle) at The Pines. (They'll also be at Brown, in Providence, that Friday.)

Antigone Rising, whom i think I remember hearing great stuff about from Melissa when she went to WAMfest, will be at Pearl Street September 21 (Saturday). Only $10. I'm so there. Oh, they'll also be in Cambridge, August 15, at TT The Bears, 10 Brookline Street.

Catie Curtis will be doing a free show Thursday, August 15, as part of the WBOS/Copley Summer Music Series in Boston. That's the same night as the Antigone Rising show in Cambridge. Here i learned that "The WBOS Summer Concerts at Copley run on Thursday nights from July 11th to August 22nd (except August 1st). Shows are FREE and begin at 5:30pm in front of historic Trinity Church in Copley Square Park." If the concert's that early i could probably still make the Antigone Rising show. Oh, i'm working 6-9 that night. Nevermind then. I've seen Catie Curtis live twice already, and i'm not a giant fan, so it's no big deal.

According to this i could see Melissa Ferrick for $20 at the MFA courtyard, Wednesday, August 28. I think i'll pass. [Also, who knew Boston had Bastille Day celebrations?]

According to this, Suzanne Vega will perform at the Friday, August 23, "free Copley Square Park summer series finale " and "will sing songs from her upcoming album, Songs in Red and Grey, due Sept. 25."

I really should stop and go finish my NYC trip post.

Anyone else i should look up next time i'm online?
evil hand

forking a...

Why has my computer (my personal one, not the family one which is hooked up to the Internet) decided that it doesn't want to recognize floppy disks? This ruins my whole system of getting stuf between my computer and the Internet.

It doesn't help that this heat is giving me a headache (i'm thrilled that the rest of the week is supposed to be cooler, and even if it's not i'll be in air-conditioning at work) and we're having tacos for dinner.
you think you know...

This is the plan.

Tonight i will finish reading Lord of the Rings (only 100 pages to go).

Tomorrow i will be a whirlwind of productivity.

Then i will work all day every day for the rest of the week.

On Saturday i will head to Philadelphia to visit Laurel and will return the following Wednesday. (Laurel, when is a good time for you to come pick me up on Saturday, and take me back on Wednesday, so i know when to plan to arrive?)

The rest of the summer will consist primarily of working and getting ready to go back to Smith. I hear rumors that we may go up to my mom’s boss’s lakeside cottage in New Hampshire Labor Day weekend. That means i have to have all my packing basically done and ready to go before we go since i return to Smith the day after Labor Day. I think i may start stressing about this whole packing go back thing soon since i have so much crap to go through. But right now i’m going to read LoTR.
