I was talking to my home skillet in Baltimore recently. We are both Cancers (born exactly 2 weeks apart) so perhaps we clicked at Hampton because we are the only ones that understand each others mood swings. 🙂
Anyway…she was complaining about not having anyone who would want to go with her to an Alpha Cab this weekend…that got me to thinking about concerts (probably because I will go to a show alone if I have to!)…so I hopped on Ticketmaster and looked around while on the phone…
The Roots TWO SHOWS ON FRIDAY @ THE APOLLO (wth? I have yet to attend a concert above 59th St)
I haven’t been to a concert in forever (well…3 months…but it FEELS like forever) so I get CRAZY excited! Luckily my rational friend was on the phone and calmed me the hell down
Rational Friend: Clu…stop…put the credit card down!
Clu: But why?
RF: How many times have you seen The Roots in the past 12 months?
Clu: err umm…3?
RF: And you saw Bilal when?
Clu: August ::grumbles::
RF: yeah ok…Ima need you to stop. I am going to need you to only see the show of an artist you have never seen before OR if they have dropped a new album since the last time you saw them
RF: stop it!
Sigh…so I am ONLY going to go see Raheem DeVaughn! I play his new album all the way through AT LEAST twice a day at work…so I must go and pay my respects.
I really didn’t need to go see the Roots or Bilal again did I? poo
