The Evens Show
Tonight we went to see The Evens with the Locas folks and friends Aileen and Katie. Luckily Ian MacKaye requested that everyone sit on the floor, it was nice. It's hard to see bands when they're playing at The Space, so it was all cozy, but our asses fell asleep. There was a lot of great banter from Ian, a sing-a-long and some whistling from the audience. The Evens were really dynamic, Ian had a nice Danelectro baritone guitar that he played amazingly. I enjoyed it when he played "bass-y" parts. The drummer Amy is exceptionally talented and is a wonderful singer, even though she said afterwards that she was in a total fog from being really sick. You couldn't even tell.
Here's an intimate pic of us peeps on the floor:
After we hung out to say hi to Ian. William knows him from way back when playing in CIA and 76% Uncertain. Bjorn was very shy, but he gave Ian some Locas in Love CDs and I managed to snap this pic:

Skipping Stones Records hosted a Pie Party for Niklas, Bjorn & Stefanie, visiting from Germany to mix their album for Karpatenhund. They love a good American pie and I was obliged to make an apple pie from scratch. It's been many years since I've made a pie crust, but I did some research and I dare say everything came back to me in a snap!
Here is Stefanie, Bjorn and Locas with many pies! Our friend Karen brought no less than THREE pies, shown in the photo. They included; pumpkin pie, cherry pie and a yummy rum cream concoction.
I made quite a mess, but it was a lot of fun. Here's a pic of the pie operation. I love to cook, so I got pretty ambitious and made several other kinds of pie, too, including a Greek spinach pie with phyllo dough and an amazing leek tart. I found a beautiful website with some great recipes at Simply Recipes. This is where I got the great pie crust recipe! The leek tart had a homemade crust with roasted leeks in olive oil, mushrooms, shallots and fresh sage. I wish I had made more!
Here's my stove with good things:
We had our guests overnight and today was a wonderful day of nothingness. Waking up to fresh coffee, bagels, sitting around and talking, reading magazines (when do I ever have the time to do that?) and ... more pie!
