Amanda’s SD Concert Calendar 2/19-2/25

Posted on by .

I am currently en route to Tuscon. Or I will be shortly after this gets published. I’m so thankful for scheduled posts! Anyways, this post was written in a bit of a stupor after a veeeeeeerrrry long day at the barn and a packing flurry. I promise to double check everything when I arrive to make sure I didn’t miss anything. In case you’re wondering why I’m going to Tuscon, I’m visiting friends and we are having a Harry Potter party complete with feasts and movie binging. I’m very excited but almost sure I’ve forgotten something important. Since I won’t be in town this week, you’ll have to get out and enjoy the music for me!!

As a side note before I continue with the calendar, I saw on the news this past week about Tay Watts and although I never got the chance to see him play at Tin Roof, I’m still very sorry about his passing. Thoughts are with his family and friends…

So, I’m still recovering from my cold. I’ve been left with a lovely cough but hopefully, it will go away soon. I almost made it out to see Judah & the Lion but I was slow to get tickets and the person whom I was supposed to get tickets from decided to up their price on me so I had to bow out. I’m super bummed I missed them but it was probably for the best since I’m still not 100%. But this is a fresh week so hopefully, I can make it out and about. Maybe I’ll see you at one of these shows if I’m not home watching the Olympics…

I spent this past week in recovery mode. I’m almost at optimal but I still get tired and feel like I need naps. I did manage to make it out to sit and watch The Gary Lekas band, which was super fun!

I had an absolute blast at the Get Back Loretta show on Saturday. It was like one giant family reunion with some people I hadn’t seen in years. It honestly felt like I was taken back 7 years or so to “way back when” and “the good old days.” I’m hoping Get Back Loretta decides to start doing more shows again but I suppose I shouldn’t be too greedy.

I’m currently on my way to Boston to visit my friend and her whole little family who I haven’t seen in over a year. I’m not really sure what we will get up to during my stay but I’m doing my darnedest to be ready for the cold weather. I know there will be lots of singing and eating involved so everything after that is just icing on the cake. Let’s see what I’ll be missing out on…

I don’t have anything much to report on my end here. I had inventory at work for two days and that was a thing. I’m super bummed that tickets to Botlerock sold out before I got a chance to get my own and I’ve been eyeing Paleyfest as well. I have a trip to the east coast coming up this month. I’m on a quest to find some snow boots or anything that will be waterproof and warm. I’ve been to NY in January and Chicago in December so I’m guessing this might be comparable but I don’t know if I can handle weather in the teens so we shall see how that goes. But I’m still here this week so let’s see what’s going on this week…

How was everyone’s first week of 2018? Mine was good. Pretty uneventful in terms of anything new and exciting going on. I’m currently finishing binge watching “Longmire” before it leaves Netflix and I’m not ashamed that it’s been my main evening occupier. We are supposed to get some rain on Tuesday which I am more than ready for. I think I will celebrate by making butternut squash mac and cheese but let’s see if this rain turns up first.
