My Social Scene is Broken
But at least I have managed to make a few good friends here and see some good music now and then. It seems my goal is not only taking advantage of traveling opportunities this year but also of good live music. I took Bri along with me last night to see Broken Social Scene, a band from Canada that I have been following for a few years since they released their first album You Forgot in People and they have now released a second, self-titled album. I teased her that it was our Valentine's date since we have both once again found ourselves single in the last month or so (although I refuse to believe in that Hallmark holiday- I secretly wish for admiring cards). What can I say, except best live performance I've seen in sometime. My only disappointment is that I did not get a hug from the primary male singer during his rounds (There's like ten of them in the band and they all do all sorts of stuff, hence the word primary and not lead.). If you have not heard of them- LISTEN! If they come to your town- SEE THEM! If you have any music taste at all- YOU WILL LOVE THEM!
