Kingsteen Rocks!

Well, I've been meaning to post a bunch of stuff about all my interests- music, art, food and wine. It took my ol' buddy Gary to bring his new band (him and his young nephew) to Norfolk the same weekend I happened to be heading down. It was cool to see some folks I haven't seen in a while but best of all- Gary's new songs were terrific. Very promising stuff. I was dead tired after 8 1/2 hours of travel so I skipped out after his set. Luckily the ride back the next day only took 3 1/2 hours. Check out their songs on my space under Kingsteenrocks.

Random notes:

Really taken with the music of St Vincent. Amazing textures and instrumentation. The songs are good to great and her singing is right on.

Went to First Fridays in Dupot to check out some galleries and had a wonderful dinner at Sette. Not cheap by any stretch but certainly worth it.

Went to a old favorite restaurant in Va Beach, Athens Pizza. This great place used to have excellent, reliable pizza. I guess I should have figured something was up when they were only about 1/4 full at 6:30 on a Saturday. Bland pizza, inattentive service- Should have went to the better Greek place, Chesapeake Pizza, just down the road.

Really excited with my work- so much that I'm going to exit out of here and get down to the studio.
