The Lou Reed Concert At The Calvin Theater

This happens to me every spring - I get rock and roll fever.

Some of you know that I went to see Lou Reed on Sunday at The Calvin Theater (there's a link here somewhere that tells you about the theater) We had great center isle seats in row H. No one too tall sitting in front of me. Perfect night. No dope. Just high on life. It doesn't take much to ammuse me these days. :-) So, if you're a Lou Reed fan, amuse yourself by following the link to the review of the show I attended on Sunday.

Except for the winters, I love living in Western Mass. Having had very bad experiences of various sorts in Vermont, I'll take The Happy Valley any day!

Anyway, I have things to do that will take all day so I don't have time to create a stunning post. Those three of you who think my posts are stunning will have to go somewhere else for your art fix. :-)

It's niiiiiiiiiiice out. On the cool side. The wind from the river makes the air, at least, feel like San Francisco Bay. Beautiful.

See you soon,


  1. I'd be jealous if Nick Lowe weren't coming... I's SO looking forward to that!

  2. I's REALLY looking forward to that! :lol:

  3. Sounds like a great evening! Until I discovered C.R. and you, I had no idea how wonderful Western Mass was.

    Hope you enjoyed the day!

  4. CR: I can't wait to see Nick Lowe! It will be good to see Gary, too.

    D: This is such a great area. Thurston Moore, from Sonic Youth, moved to Northampton with his family from NYC for all the area has to offer without the crazy of NY. He opened for Lou Reed and was AWFUL but that's beside the point!
    I like it real loud sometimes but I do require a touch of melody in my music. All that guitar noise grates on my nerves. Ugh! And this from a person who is very open-minded about music. Ugh!

"When the Amherst sphinx styled herself a pagan, she meant she didn’t believe in the biblical God. What sort of deity, if any, she did believe in is hard to pinpoint."
