The second concert actually happens first on Sept. 15th... also in P'land. That's yes, you guessed it by the video... Flogging Molly, who you have experience here before if you were interested enough to do the video. I love both bands... but Flogging Molly happens here fairly often. The Pogues do not. This is a huge treat for me.
I must say, my life has been sitting in a cultural vacuum. My town has some wonderful points. I find it very easy to hide here and be the hermit that I have become. But that's self-defense.
I grew up going to plays and to museums in San Francisco or in L.A. There were lots of concerts in my world. Zoos. The art world and beaches of Carmel and Monterey. Summers in L.A. or Santa Cruz. There were things to see and experience and learn. I miss that so much!
I suppose one could argue that The Pogues and Flogging Molly are not exactly the pillars of culture. Phooey! For once I have something to do! It's not a pot luck. It's not a church function. It's not the class given by the local extension office. It's not work related and I do not have to be responsible for everyone's kids. Yay! Food for my brain and my soul.
Today I am grateful... big time. So here's to starting up a friendship with the curious gas bitch!Here's to hearing from friends! Here's to having something to look forward to doing! Here's to having some sort of life! (It's about fucking time.)
Oh... and here's to Dude... and "knowing he's out there takin' her easy for all us sinners".
Big grins, folks. Thanks for coming by... and HI ALL YOU LURKERS!
Sorry there's no video. This had the best sound. The words matter to me. ;)
