Happy July 4th and some more California (Dreamy) Guitar Trio with Julie and Eric Slick

Happy Independence Day -- oh that I really felt free, but let's not even go there now.

There is much to to talk about -- such as last night's brilliant Project Object concert at World Cafe Live where I met my first real world Twitter friend...and by the way Project Object continues their tour with @mrericslick (Twitter, twitter) on drums at a place where it appears you definitely should not drink the Kool-Aid, a/k/a The Church of Universal Love and Music...also, the fact that @julie slick (I won't do the twitter, twitter thing again...uh oh, just did) is coming over later today to cook up a very unconventional gourmet holiday feast and yes there will be photos and lots of descriptions posted later along with pics of last night's Project Object concert.

But in the meantime, when I got home late last night, I noticed a comment on my blog which lead me to a whole page of You Tubes from the California Guitar Trio with Julie and Eric from their show on June 20 at the Sellersville Theater, and really, I've been so engrossed watching them all morning and shaking my head in awe that I want to post them here now for your holiday viewing pleasure. Cool? Cool!

First up, "Echoes" -- complete with amazing light show about half way through...



Next we have the brilliant "In the Middle of Nowhere in the Middle of Texas", which was written at Pat Mastelotto's house, by the way, in the middle of nowhere in the middle of Texas (ha ha, you can thank me later, Pat)...



And how about a little Larks' Tongue in Aspic Part II...



Oh my! I really can't stop watching/listening.

Okay, Earth to Robin. Erm..where was I? Oh yeah. July 4. Whatever. God Bless America on this July 4...more importantly, the fact that Sarah Palin is at least temporarily gone from government but I don't trust the bitch. (Though I do hope it's because nude photos of her having sex with a moose are about to pop up although that thought just made me throw up a little because oh, that poor moose). Anyway, I'll be back tomorrow with the promised concert photos, Project Object show review, and hurrah, lots and lots of food porn!

Oh yeah, did I mention I live right down the street from one of the biggest fireworks display in the entire United States...and that said fireworks will include a free concert by Jeffrey Gaines, The Roots, and Sheryl Crow? Erm, on the one hand, it's very cool that is happening in my neighborhood; on the other hand, it means 2,000,000 obnoxious "tourists" (a/k/a people who do not live in or normally visit downtown Philadelphia) will be invading my space and leaving their collective mental and physical litter. Ha! Oh well. I think I'll watch the concert on T.V. and head outside just for the fireworks. But of course that will all depend on what Julie wants to do and how much of her deadly home made Sangria we drink...

Later,
xo

Oh man... Larks gives me the chills watching it! It's not just the musicality of Eric and Julie that gets me, it's their versatility and adaptability. I'm beginning to think there's no music they couldn't play.

Oh yeah, and the Trio were okay too. ;) :P

Loved your comments on Sheryl Crow and Sarah Palin. We're forced to suffer through her awful music and many others like her because some moron in a suit gives her a record contract. These sorry groups of untalented musicians(?) and entertainers(?) permeate the airways and tv screens, at least the government took away my tv signal so at least I don't have to watch them anymore. Converter box my ass, but that's a whole other rant. As for Ms Palin isn't that how she bagged her first moose? Threatened it with beastiality and the poor animal took it's own life! I have to disagree about Philly having the best fireworks in the country, nothing beats the Macys fireworks display in NYC. Hearing the pyrotecnics exploding and echoing thru the skyscrapers and bright colors reflecting off the tall buildings is unparalelled. Maybe next year the Trio can tour BB Kings during the Fourth and see for yourself.
