Live Music in the Living Room

Wednesday, July 9th, 2003

Scarlet Runner String BandWell, I got home from Habibi Dancers’ practice, and the Scarlet Runner String Band was rehearsing in our living room. What a luxury!

This is a band Brian has been in since long before we ever met. They usually play for contra dances in East Lansing, for the Looking Glass Music and Arts Association. We actually started dating after I went to a dance they played about 7 years ago, when the dances were still at Foster Center. A bunch of us went out after the dance for some food, and Brian and I talked until 1am. But I digress…

The Scarlet Runners, since they usually play for dances, usually play *tunes* rather than *songs.* In other words, they don’t sing. But this weekend they will be playing at Altu’s Restaurant and will be not only playing tunes, but some of their songs. I really like it when they sing. Show is at 6:30-8:30 on Saturday the 12th if any local person is interested. Oh, and Brian and I are playing as The Fabulous Heftones, on Saturday the 26th.

But, wowie, do I feel wealthy when I come home and there is this fabulous live music right here in my house! It’s just wonderful, and after many years I still don’t take it for granted. Lucky me!
