Music Weekend

Friday, July 11th, 2003

Well, today is Friday and there is a lot of music coming up this weekend.

“Wally Pleasant and Carl” will be playing at the Temple club (corner of Cedar and Old Grand River in Old town) tonight. “Carl” is the name of the band, made up of two guys, neither of whom is named Carl. That is so Wally! He just has to twist reality a little.

Brian has played backup for Wally on his more familiar acoustic gigs, for several years. The addition of Carl means that Wally now has a set of music that is more appropriate for a dance venue, a bar, a rock and roll gig. He says he will still be doing the solo acoustic gigs as well, but tonight should be fun. I can’t go, because I am teaching knitting at JoAnn Fabric (I am so excited) but it would be worth checking out. Wally’s website is http://wallypleasant.com

Tomorrow Scarlet Runner String Band plays Altus, 6:30-8:30. My mom is coming. This is cool because for some reason my Mom and Altu have not met yet. I am not sure how that happened, but I’m excited to introduce them. Last night Altu got to meet my friend JoDee, who is the mother of my Goddaughter Sara who I talk about here from time to time. Altu met Sara but not JoDee, until yesterday.

Oh, and for those willing to drive a bit, the Michigan ElvisFest is happening Friday and Saturday in Ypsilanti, near Ann Arbor. That could be SUCH fun!!!

Ypsilanti is a good town for food, too… they have a great Vietnamese (I think, or maybe it’s Thai) restaurant in downtown not far from the volunteer theatre where my brother Eric and his wife Diana, do theatre shows from time to time.

ElvisFest will include Elvis Autorama, lots of entertainment (Elvis impersonators and musicians who are booked as friends of Elvis), and a barbecue in the park. Gotta be good. The fest is 5pm-Midnight Friday and 10am-Midnight Saturday, in Depot town, a beautiful historic area.
