Star Witness

Guess what? Nope, I'll just tell you. We saw the New Pornographers last night.

I don't often like doing fun things. Unless your definition of fun (like mine) includes sitting on your couch with your feet pressed to a space heater, watching episodes of Newhart and eating chex mix. But, more traditional fun things, this time of year? Count me out. It's cold, and everything feels far away, and I'd just rather stay home.

But, a friend of James's got him tickets as a gift, and...VIP wristbands. You can see it in that top picture. The camo one is so I can drink (thank goodness), and the blue one is for the VIP section. Walking past the bouncer and flashing my wristband was pretty rad (I don't think it needs to be pointed out, but this was my first VIP experience).

Truth be told, it was cold, and it was far away (at 59th, past 11th Ave, people), but it was pretty great. I've never seen Neko Case in concert, and she was everything I wanted her to be. That voice... If you're not sure who I'm talking about, go here. She sounds just like that in concert. Just like.

Ok, I have to go. I've got an episode of Newhart cued up.


  1. So, Mary and I saw them in concert this summer. It was fantastic. Neko is amazing.

  2. Yeah, she is. They've got a weird on-stage patter, however. It was pretty awkward, and it went on for too long, so, of course I liked it.
