Oh lordy, what an awesome day. So first I worked eight hours in my cube at the Star Tribune, but I got to wrap up assigning a really cool (um, I hope it’s cool? or I hope *you* think it’s cool?) illustration for our Halloween cover. You’ll have to wait to see it, but man, I’m pretty excited.
Then? Then I got to head over to St. Paul and watch P.O.S. play a super small show at the local music college and hear a ton of his new music live. Woot! Love hearing the new songs! And you guys? The kids in the crowd were singing along to every word. To the songs on the album that ISN’T EVEN OUT YET. They knew all the words from the internet leaks! And it was so fun!
And then I left there, crossed the street, and got to see an incredibly intimate show by Conor Oberst! Yeah, yeah, yeah. I know he’s polarizing, but I’m a girl and I love his music. LOVE IT. And he played so many old songs and it was lovely
I mean seriously, how many times do you get to see two of your top five artists play BACK TO BACK across the street from each other in the same town. And hear new music from both? I’m a happy girl, I tell you.
And? AND? Besides all of this, my two dear friends Stacy and Carl got engaged today! Seriously happy for those two. So, so happy.
