When your favorite performer no longer performs, you take what you can get. I was able to get tickets to a Bowie tribute show at the Metro. My wife scrutinized me with wrinkled eyes when I came downstairs in my worn Aladdin Sane t-shirt. I sent away for it in the mail when I was in the ninth grade.
“You look ridiculous,” my wife said. “I can’t believe that thing hasn’t torn apart yet.” I put on my jacket and grabbed my keys. “You’re going to be the only one your age there, you know. One old guy in a sea of young people. They’ll positively loathe you.”
Sorry I didn't write one yesterday. I worked from home, so I wasn't on public transit at all. I would have written about someone on the train today, but I caught a train that had sort of strange timing. So there was pretty much nobody on it. I decided to go with someone that I saw at the concert instead. It was a really fun concert. Chris Connelly does a fantastic Bowie vocal impression. Here's a video I took of the band singing "Sound and Vision." And here's one of Shirley Manson from Garbage singing "Boys Keep Swinging."
Today is my one-year Friendiversary with the lovely Gena. Drinks at Violet Hour later to celebrate...
