Wild At Heart
Not sure about you guys but we were about a day or so from having all the snow in my yard melting to about 8 inches of heavy, wet snow falling and covering everything. Just when I thought winter might be over, we got hit one last time. I'm hoping the 60 degree weather can melt some of this stuff because I am tired of seeing and want to start doing some yard work which is now delayed another week or so. Guess that new edge trimmer will have to stay in the box a bit before it can be used.
I am keeping it short this week because Yahoo is not working that well right now and I got to go through some emails. Have to go back to classic mode to even get close to reading them. So to keep it short, here are some cool shows coming up:
Tuesday (4/1) - Carmen Souza @ the Ark
Wednesday (4/2) - Mindless Self Indulgence @ St Andrews Hall
Thursday (4/3) - Chick Corea and Bela Fleck @ Motorcity Sound Board, "Experience Hendrix" feat Billy Cox w/Buddy Guy and Jonny Lang (also Kenny Wayne Shepherd, Dweezil Zappa, Doyle Bramhall II, Ana Popovic, Bootsy Collins, etc)
Friday (4/4) - 1592 @ Smalls, Blood Sweat and Tears @ Macomb Center For Performing Arts
Saturday (4/5) - Sonny Landreth @ Callahans
Sunday (4/6) - St Vincent @ Majestic Theatre, Taking Back Sunday and the Used @ the Fillmore
Monday (4/7) - Emmylou Harris w/Daniel Lanois @ Royal Oak Music Theatre
I saw Carmen at the Rochester Jazz Fest last year and was very impressed. Born in Lisbon to Cape Verde parents, she starting singing at 17 in a gospel choir and later got introduced to jazz and other genre which she has blended well into an exciting mix. A wonderful talent to catch in such a nice and intimate venue.
