something to look forward to March 6, 2007

Filed under: calendar,music — sp @ 9:50 pm

on sunday night, instead of doing some extra badly needed reading in preparation for the next day, i was contemplating my lack of a life and current anhedonia.  so i decided to mosey on over to Live 105’s and KFOG’s sites to check out the concert scene and was happily surprised to find out that Ben Gibbard of Death Cab for Cutie would be doing a solo show at the Fillmore in May.  tix had just gone on sale that morning, and i was lucky enough to score a pair as the show now appears to be sold out.  good music, good venue, good price – yay!

i LOVE dcfc and was lucky enough to see them in concert last March with another fave band, franz ferdinand.  not sure if ben is doing a solo project, but based on his work with the postal service and dcfc, i’m sure i’ll love the solo show.

here’s one of my all-time favorite songs:

wish i could upload my own files to the site, as there’re so many dcfc songs to share, e.g. a great cover of “Earth Angel”….  yes, i’m also a big fan of oldies music, and of course, the especially sappy songs.

p.s.  please excuse my limited vocabulary and repetitive word choice as 1) i’m post-call; 2) the goal of medical language is to use as many acronyms as possible; and 3) i read an average of 2 non-medical books a year.
