Adrian Belew Tonight

LL and I are headed out in a bit to see the Adrian Belew Power Trio at the Natick Center for the Arts with my adviser. It turns out that he and I have very similar tastes in music.

This is the first concert we've been to since we saw Marcel Khalife back in November and only the second one since waaaaay back when we saw The Cramps in St. Petersburg, Florida. That's when we were living in Tampa — somewhere around four years ago, I guess.

That's kind of pathetic. When we lived in the San Francisco Bay Area, we used to see a lot of shows. Of course, we had a lot more money back then and there was a lot more music in which we were interested. There wasn't much in Tampa Bay and nothing at all while we were in Tallahassee. One good things about living where we do now is that it's close to Boston, a big city and major market, so it gets a lot more of the kind of music we're into. Then again, we're still relatively broke students, too.

Last time I saw Adrian Belew, he was playing live with the Talking Heads while they toured for Remain in Light, or maybe it was Speaking in Tongues. Yes, it's been a very long time!

I wonder if David Byrne will be in the audience tonight. It's possible...
