What a wild and crazy week with GISHWHES in my life! The international scavenger hunt really pushed me out of my comfort zone, altered my perspective on what is possible, and renewed my affections for this amazing city I get to live in.  Since proving the existence of ghosts last weekend, I photographed moon fairies, gave life to a Garbage Patch Kid, apologized to Sweden, and attended a coleslaw party so wild that the cops were called.

I really intended to focus my time last week on the hunt, but I still managed to make it to a show…or two…okay, three!  Next week is Echo Park Rising (http://epr.la/).  I hope to see many of you there, especially Thursday night for The Diamond Light’s final (forever? for now?) show at The Lost Room.

Amanda’s SD Concert Calendar 8/7-8/13

Posted on by .

I’m still in NYC but only for one more day. It’s been an absolutely amazing time here with good friends, good food, and good musicals. If you ever get the chance to see The Great Comet, I highly encourage you to do so! I also went to a midnight film screening of 68 Kill starring Matthew Gray Gubler, who came and did a Q & A before the movie. That was a truly unique experience. We don’t get a lot of film screenings in San Diego, let alone with a Q & A from a star in the movie. I am looking forward to coming home though. As much fun as this has been, I miss my horse, my dog, and my gym friends.

 

Monday:

Tuesday: James Vincent McMorrow @ Belly Up at 8pm
AND: Diana Krall @ Humphrey’s at 8pm
AND: Neil Diamond @ Valley View Casino Center at 8pm

Posted on by .

This week, I’m participating in the Greatest International Scavenger Hunt the World Has Ever Seen (GISHWHES).  I’m in an amazing team with a diverse group of fun people and, so far (and it’s only been two days), it’s been a blast! Today, I ventured to a ghost town to prove the existence of ghosts…we shall see what tomorrow might bring.  But, on this note, if anyone has access to a storm trooper (or any Star Wars character) costume, clothing with a banana/s on it, or an inflatable couch, let me know!
