- 11/2 : Nightwish at Slim's in SF. I know some other people were interested in going, but I'm not sure who if anyone has tickets yet.
If any of these sound good, or you're already going, ping me if you want to meet up. I definitely want to see more live music now that I'll be living in the Bay Area with free time on my hands, so suggestions are welcome. Also, if you're interested in anything at The Catalyst in Santa Cruz after September, I'm almost certain to be up for walking across the street to join you :-)
On a related musical note, Wycelf Jean gave an amazing performance at Google today. I didn't care about the Fugees one way or another when they were popular, and that's partly why I'd written this guy off as just another washed up R&B singer. It turns out that he's incredibly intelligent, well-spoken, and he can freestyle beyond belief. The video isn't up on YouTube yet, but I recommend you all to keep an eye out for it.
(I need a better music icon than "iPod ad Avani")
