Bound to Ramble

I'm off to Cali for 2 weeks for work and fun. I'll be in San Francisco April 3-7 and 9-13 with a stop in LA in between. Unfortunately, I'll be missing John Butler Trio again. Hopefully, I'll get sent back to San Fran the last week of April where he is doing a 2 night stand at the Fillmore.

Once I get back from the west coast, I'm heading to the good ole BC for Easter. I'm in dire need of some good home cooking. I'll be in town for 2 days then its off to Orlando for my company's user's conference for our clients.

The summer concert season is upon us and I just bought my ticket to Bonnaroo. Yesterday, tickets went on presale for Ben Harper at Merriweather Post Pavillion and I scooped up a few. If anyone needs lawn tickets I have 2 extra.

DMB tickets go on sale next weekend for the summer tour. Nissan lucked out and got a Saturday show. The band is doing a few two night stands that are well worth mentioning; they are at Fenway Park in Boston July 7, 8 and at Randall's Island in NY August 5, 6. I'm definitely going to try to get tickets for the Fenway shows but the Randall's Isle shows fall on the weekend of the OBB, so that one is out.

Anyways, here's to the summer concert season and all the greatness it brings.

Wine Glasses

The Gizmodo gadgets weblog posted about a set of interesting wine glasses. They are made of blown glass but shaped to look like solo cups on a stem. They scream let's forget class and sophistication and shout let's just booze it up. Perhaps if these had come out while I was in college, I would be more into wine. They are a bit expensive at $43 a pop, so let's hope Solo comes out with a plastic knockoff.

See their article on the Sommelier Wine Glasses or purchase them at Thorsten Van Elten.

Mardy Bum

Tonight, I'm going to see the Arctic Monkeys at 9:30 Club with Britto, Owens, Matt, Zoe, and Angela.

Britto first introduced me to them a month or so back. He informed me that they had the fastest selling single in UK history. I went to their site and some fan sites and started listening to them.

They have a good Brit Rock sound that reminds me at times of the Beatles, the Stones and Oasis with bits of Sublime intermixed. The 4 piece band plays quite well together despite playing together for such a short time. Hell they aren't even 21 yet.

Stop making the eyes at me, I'll stop making the eyes at you
And what it is that surprises me, is that I don't really want you to

So I've been out in San Francisco all week for work. Unfortunately, I've done nothing but work and eat at nice restaurants. I got put up in a pretty nice hotel in Union Square which is cool but I haven't had any time to check out the rest of the city. I'd really like to check out some shows at the Fillmore or a chill little bar.

I took a few pictures from my camera phone from the hotel that came out pretty decent. I took more with my regular camera and will post them later.

You can see the bay in the background of the first two.

As luck would have it, Guster is playing the 26th at the Fillmore. I'll be back in town for that week of work so I'll have to hit that up.

I took some pictures of city hall and uploaded them to Yahoo! Photos. Check out my San Fran photos.
