I am officially out of school as of last Thursday. I had a monster of an art final to complete but I’m happy to report that I received full marks for my effort. Yay! We have our Christmas tree up and decorated as well. There are already some things under it too! How speedy.

Shows are rather scarce this week and I’m guessing it’s due to the upcoming holidays. It picks up come Thursday and Friday in time for the weekend. I guess you can spend your Monday and Tuesday shopping or something.

Happy December! I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving. Mine was quite tasty and enjoyable. I’m still noshing on leftovers which is nice. Kind of a later post than normal today as I was out at the barn getting ready for all this rain we are supposed to be getting tomorrow and through the rest of the week. I’m kind of excited about the impending rain as we really need it but I’m less than excited about having to drive in it. But the rain shouldn’t keep you away from the music! In fact, that’s when you need to go out and support because people have a tendency to stay home. Here’s what we have for the week…

Happy Last-Week-of-November-and-Where-The-Heck-Did-the-Year-Go?!?! In all seriousness, I hope everyone has a wonderful and bountiful Thanksgiving. As it is the week of Thanksgiving, shows are a little on the scarce side, especially compared to last week. That’s a good thing for me as I’m fighting off a cold at the moment. Not the best time to get some minor congestion but I’ve been surrounded by sick people so I guess it was inevitable? I blame the weather.

Can you believe it’s almost time for Thanksgiving again? Wasn’t it just March or something? I can’t believe it. Also, this is my first year having to do a gluten free Thanksgiving so that means we are testing out some recipes to see which is the best. Also. we made a sourdough starter last night and I’m really looking forward to having some sourdough bread! I’ve missed that a lot. Also, cornbread stuffing and gluten free pie crusts! Before I get ahead of myself with food, let’s talk music for the week. There’s a lot of sold out shows this week (7!) but a lot of other options in case you’re a last minute planner like a lot of people I know. No excuses. Go support the scene!

I’d by lying right now if I said I didn’t have “Shake It Off” by Taylor Swift stuck in my head right now. It’s kind of an awesome little mantra I have going on right now. I spent my Friday night in Pioneertown at Pappy and Harriet’s to see Transfer and it was pretty amazing. I stayed the night in a cabin up there and ate at this wonderful little place called The Natural Sisters Cafe on my way out of town. I have a 4 Day badge secured for Comic Con next year thanks to a friend who got in the room during pre-registration (I’m pretty sure I wouldn’t have been called in) so, score! And to top it off, after having a serious case of the dropsies for the last 4 days, I somehow scratched my eye. That might be a little TMI but it’s a first for me. Oh, and I’m pretty happy to have Tuesday off from school so I can catch up on my art homework. So, that’s what’s new in Amanda-land. Enough about me though because there is a lot of music this week!

Happy Monday! I hope everyone had a wonderful Halloween and Halloween weekend. I had probably one of the best Halloweens ever and I’ve still got that inner glow. I’m hoping to maintain that for as long as possible. Also, I’m loving the colder weather and the bit of rain we had. I heard it’s supposed to get back up to 80 degrees again this week though. Can we just have winter already? Speaking of winter, how many of us really needed that extra hour we got? I sure did and it was a wonderful excuse to catch up on sleep. Ok, enough yammering from me….
