I'm a Groupie

Last night I got to see one of my favorite bands live. Bright Men of Learning.

It's true that The Mr. is the drummer. But even if he wasn't, they would still be one of my favorite bands.

I love their music: The sounds. The rhythms. The subtle stories that are told through song.

They are their own brand of cool.

The stars aligned and they played at Rudyard's. It has amazingly good sound. And $2
Lone Stars on tap. That place is filled with good memories.

The evening was spent with friends old and new. Lots of talking over the music. Laughing at inside jokes. Did I mention the $2
Lone Stars on tap?

The boys put on a great show. I left with ringing ears and a nice buzz. I felt like I was 22 again.

I awoke this morning with a headache, dark circles, a hoarse voice, and jeans that smelled of stale smoke and last night's fun.

And I've been smiling ever since.
