Nothing says romantic like spending the entire Valentine’s Day holiday in bed…..with kleenex stuffed up my nose, cold medicine on one side and cough drops on the other, with enough blankets on top of me to melt Antarctica…..said NO ONE EVER!
That’s my story and I’m sticking to it
Good thing, my wife and I planned ahead.
We won’t be celebrating this day until next Saturday.
There is a concert that will be playing here in middle of nowheresville.
One that we are both excited about.
That, in itself, is quite a feat.
Because, we never see eye to eye when it comes to the pleasures of the ears.
Rather than rehash an old topic on a new post….
Read the old post called Audio Estrogen.
Good, let’s continue.
The concert we are going to is Justin Furstenfeld (try saying that name 10 times fast).
Yeah I couldn’t do not either.
He is the lead singer of a band called Blue October.
He is on a solo tour called- “An Open Book”.
We will not only be enjoying the show. We also are gonna delve into the meet and greet before hand.
He will be playing an aucoustic set, where he explains the meaning of the songs he writes.
Kind of like the storyteller series.
Here is a sample of what we are to expect- “Fear”
He is an intense songwriter who shares his triumphs and struggles in life through music.
A lot of his music centers around recovery.
The band’s first album- “Consent To Treatment” is one of my all time favorites.
I can relate to what he is relating to…in a relative sort of way.
Now that I have been out of bed long enough to write this, I can hear the kleenex calling me back from whence I came.
I hope yall’s Valentine’s Day has been rosier than mine.
