I’m not a Nashville country music kinda guy so I wasn’t aware of the Bluebird Cafe until last night. If I’m ever in town I’ll be stopping by.

LIMF 2nd night. As I said in my last post its great we have such amazing spaces for music. Some great DJs on last night. I was really hoping Norman ‘the cat’ Killen, who used DJ in the original Eric’s, would do a set. He didn’t but the main guys played some awesome tunes.

Another year and another rainy Pride Festival. I think the rain just makes people have a more fun time. To quote my wife, “You can’t have a rainbow without rain.” The rain killed my X100s.
