Concious Evolution and the Man of Constant Sorrow

Last night was a bit of a live music coup for my group of friends. We had tickets to “Down From the Mountain” and were fortunate to have them. The show sold out in 48 hours. We had pretty good seats, too. Dr. Ralph Stanley wasn’t far away at all. Jerry Douglas was scaring me with how well he could pick his guitar. Allison Krauss was sick and couldn’t sing. Union Station more than made up for it. Kudos to my wife for getting on the stick and buying those tickets when she could.

That’s not the coup, however.

After the show was over, we hopped in Emilio, drove from Spartanburg to Greenville and caught the last set of the Donna the Buffalo show at the Handlebar for free. And if you’ve never been to a Donna show, catching the last set is a lot like seeing a whole concert. We got there at 11:30 and left just before 2AM.

The only bad thing…I slept until noon-ish today. I’m very well-rested and as a result, not very creative. Plus, I’m distracted by the game that’s on TV.

Regardless, it’s been a nice weekend.
