Date night!

I don't know if it's because he has a Music Production and Engineering degree, or if it's because he surfs the web a lot, but my husband seems to ALWAYS find these incredible new artists.  Take the Barenaked Ladies, for instance.  Now, I'm not saying he's DISCOVERED them... rather, he knew about them and was listening to them before they even had RADIO time!  I remember being in a little obscure music store in London, Ontario, where we met and went to college/university, sifting though cassette tapes (Yes, I'm THAT old) when I heard him exclaim, "I found it!"  IT turned out to be the demo tape of the Barenaked Ladies and on it was their first number one hit, "If I Had $1,000,000".  Not the souped up, choir-backed version you hear on the radio today, but just a raw acoustic version.  Which in my opinion was so much better.

But I digress.

Gary managed to get tickets to this next duo, who are playing at the Royal Oak Music Theatre in Royal Oak, Michigan tonight, just across the border.  Rodrigo y Gabriela . Here's a clip of them when they performed on The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson:

If you're wondering, there's NO percussion - that's just Gabriela Quintero beating her guitar to death!  I'm so excited to go see them!  Not my typical choice of concert, but I can't wait to see them play live!

Which brings me to the point of my post - I have to jump in the shower and get ready, after a particularly vigorous "Drums In Motion" exercise class (more on that later!) so I am extending the deadline to my blog RAK to tonight!  I will pick a winner in the morning (or early afternoon, depending on when we get home! :)) and will post!  So leave me a comment on this post for a chance to win a copy of the Spring 2010 issue of Canadian Scrapbooker!



  1. Wow, that is exciting!
    Have fun at the concert, don't forget your camera!!!

  2. Hope you had a great time!! We've seen the Barenaked Ladies in concert a couple of times and thoroughly enjoyed both times!!



Thank you for your comments - I appreciate the feedback!
