The other day we were hanging out at the bar. This old guy wobbles in from the street, sits down at the bar and immediately starts insulting the fellow sitting next to us. He screams, "I slept with your mother!" The bar goes quiet and everyone waits to see what will happen next. The guy again yells, "I SLEPT WITH YOUR MOTHER!" The other fellow says, "Go home Dad, you're drunk."
Just a day in the life. Speaking of "A Day In The Life", this Friday, Jan 21, we have a Beatles tribute band called 3eatles playing at 7:30pm. $6 (the same price, incidentally, that it was to see The Beatles at Red Rocks in '64.) Our old friend Amy Kitteringham is singing jazz standards at 5pm for the free Friday afternoon concert and DJ Chonz rounds out the night at 10pm.
Saturday at 4pm the Music Train Family Concert Series presents: Kutundara (African Marimba ensemble). $7 adult/ $3 kids. Great thing to do with the family.
At 7pm Saturday we have a CD release party for a band that is dear to our hearts, Wonderlic. All the members of this band have been friends of ours for a years and we're excited that they have come out with their first CD. It's a beaut, with funky grooving style all its own. Also playing, in support, will be The Riot and Five In The Wheel. $5 suggested donation (no one turned away).
Sunday morning come out for a little meditative music at 10am with Adam DeGraff, Melissa Ivey, Brittany Williams and others. You are free to listen, join in, or practice freeform yoga.
Then at 11am we have The Mello Cello Brunch, with Monica Sales on Cello. The breakfast pizzas are amazing if you have not been in to try one yet.
Next Tuesday night at 7pm we have a special performer from Hawaii playing, Mango Stephens. There will be hula dancers too. No cover. This guy is the real deal and has a beautiful sound. Another great thing to bring the family out for.
There is a lot more going on too. For the rest of the schedule, check out www.dnote.us.
Extra Credit: Here's a haiku from the 17th century Japanese poet, Matsuo Basho. We found it in David Mura's book "Turning Japanese".
Coming home at last
At the end of the year
I wept to find
My old umbilical cord.
