Saturday night I thought about not going, but I knew I had to find the fun. I don't go to shows all the time these days, duh I have kids, and I'm getting old so I get tired at like 6:30. But David was having a record release so I got a babysitter and drove through the snow (yes, snow! I just about turned around) to the King Cobra. It only took me about 45 mintues to find parking on Capitol Hill (harumph) but my soccer mom kids-these-days grumpiness went away as I walked to the venue, past Neumo's where loud goodness was pouring out and past the Comet where more loudness and fun people were and I was suddenly so glad to be here. I'm so in love with this city! Thank you Jesus in the sky for such fun friends and good music everywhere. Here are some pics of that night by Sound on the Sound. David sewed this outfit. By hand. G-g-g-gay! It's pretty fantastic.
Pillow fight during the last song.
I'm still finding feathers everywhere five days later.
Oh - their new album is called Are You There, God? It's Me, Tennis Pro. hee hee
