Going out

Got to see Whispertown 2000 last night at Doug Fir. It’s been a while since we’ve been there, I’m trying to figure out when the last show we saw there was. Matt Sheedy opened.

Whispertown 2000 was great as usual. They played mostly stuff off of Swim, which I am less familiar with as it is new. I didn’t remember how much they switch up who is playing what, which is fun. They had a great t-shirt that looked like a 70s workout shirt with Swim on one side of the v-neck and Whispertown 2000 on the other. The crowd was a little weird. No one was really watching the show for some reason, and I’m not sure too many people had heard them before. Brian thought it was because they were there for the headliner (Maria Taylor), but a good number of people left before that. Very strange. They played Restless, which is one of my favorite songs.

Brian and I argued about the value of blogging in between sets. He’s decidedly against, both writing and reading.

Tonight Katie and I are going to wander up to Last Thursday to look at art and see what we can see. It’s suppose to be nearly 70, so it should be a pleasant evening. Wish I was in a position to buy a piece or two, although last month’s Last Thursday didn’t have as many people showing as I’d expected.
