Bass & Concert...

Yesterday, when I picked up Mister C. from his last day of Cross Country Running camp, he had this on his back...


He has been playing the Electric Bass for a few years now and this past week he received some lessons on this beauty! It is very different and difficult apparently and my god, the amount of noise that comes out of it! But sooooo cool don't you think?!  {smile}
I wish he would play some Rockabilly on it but so far he has not shown much interest in that music genre... :-(

That evening we went to seeMark Lanegan in Concert....

His warm-up 'band' were Sean Wheeler & Zander Schloss and they were actually really good! Sean (the thin guy in the black suit) looked like an 'handsome/ ugly' man (that's what he called himself  ~wink~) and looked like he'd had a rough past but his voice was excellent! Very entertaining I must say...

But then Mark came on and Man, did he blow us away! His voice is soooo low and so intense. He seems very private and was almost shy on stage, even though he has been performing for more than 25 years now. Very 'endearing', if you can say that of a man of his posture and being in his late 40's...

All these pictures were taken with G.'s cell phone, hence the bad quality....

The Neptune, an old cinema recently transformed into this venue, was amazing. A small and very intimate setting. Definitely a place to return to. It is located on 45th and University in the U-District for those of you in the know. It really reminded me of the old Scala Cinema in Utrecht (near the Neude)...

So, a good night was had and we slept in until 9:30 this morning! Unheard of for me... Today it is raining and cloudy and blah. A good time to get serious about our upcoming trip to Europe and do some real planning!

  1. So lovely that you had a night out. I think you son looks like you!!

    I'd be packing for that trip to Europe and then sit at the front door until the day to leave arrives. That's it. Just sit there!! Bags (and camera) waiting!!
