my decadent weekend

I was out past midnight both Friday and Saturday nights! Usually my life is so tame so I'm in bed waaay before then.

Friday bona and I went to see Ben Lee at the Double Door. A great show. Ben Lee is a performer who performs great pop music and truly loves doing it. What I didn't love however were the frat boys and trixies who were at the show just to drink and talk (grrr), even through a Lucinda Williams cover.

Saturday brought a late lunch at Friday's and then costello1177's birthday party where we drank powerful but yummy drinks, finally met michael_lucid and then drove home in the pouring rain. We did enjoy a break at the O'Hare Oasis for some caffeine and a massage in the massage chair.

This morning we had an early lunch then I dropped bona off at the choo-choo and now I'm at work :(

I have "Awake is the New Sleep," but haven't formed an opinion yet.

What Lucinda Williams song did he do? I love her.

I never liked Ben much before this year, but "Awake is the New Sleep" is in the running for album of the year for me. It's happy, but in a good, sincere way. Plus, "Catch My Disease" is the song of the year.

He covered "Yellow Firecracker" in a duet with opening act New Buffalo. It was quite purdy, but only the second-best Lucinda cover ever done by Australians.
