Tonight at World Cafe Live, Philadelphia -- Adrian Belew Power Trio!

Okay, obviously that's Eric and Julie on stage -- but if you peer behind them, you'll see Adrian Belew talking with their dad, who really has the hippie thing going on these days in like every way imaginable. Yay, Gary! The guy to the left of Eric is a musician from a French Zappa cover band.

Heart be still, The Adrian Belew Power Trio plays Philadelphia tonight. I'll be the one jumping up and down screaming and fainting up at the front of the stage. Funny. As I'm typing this, I'm remembering another conversation Gary and I had at BB Kings Tuesday night with Adrian Belew and his engineer, John Sinks. Gary and Adrian both saw the Beatles live (can you imagine?) and talked about the audience going into one long extended scream and it was the same way when A Hard Day's Night was released into movie theaters. Girls fainted and shouted throughout. Never having had the, um, privilege (gag) of attending boy band concerts, I wonder if that kind of thing still exists. Probably, huh. Bah! I want to hear the music!

Anyway, last chance to buy tickets for tonight right here. Show starts at 7:30 p.m.

But meanwhile...

I can't believe it's only 9:45 a.m. Ten more hours to wait! Arghh! said...

Hey Ms. Slick... Im sure youve got more going on then reading your blog right now, but just wanted to say Im very excited to see Adrian (and your kids!) perform tonight in Philly. I happened to see their kickoff in Indy, so this is a wonderful opportunity for me.

But not as wonderful as it is for you. As a parent, I just wanted to say have a GREAT time tonight, expect a friendly, enthusiastic crowd, and I cannot imaggine how proud you must be of your kids.

Best Regards, Ill see you at the show :-D

That's a wonderful photo! And how cute is Gary?!

Speaking of boy bands, the other night I met a guy who used to be a dancer for Marky Mark and the Funky Bunch. I laughed so hard. Why do I have a feeling he'll make a dancing appearance on my blog?

I'm leaving town tomorrow and will stop in to see how the Philly gig went.
