Went to the first show at the newly rebuilt Georgia Theatre in Athens on Monday night to see The Glands, and Madeline opened.
It was a great show. The Glands haven’t played a show in forever. Kathleen and I had seen them play a long time ago at the now closed Echo Lounge in East Atlanta.
Brent was supposed to go with us, but bailed at the last minute. Oh well. We had fun, but late nights and week days don’t go over as easy as they used to.
Kathleen and I saw the Rosebuds play at the Earl on June 16.
William Gibson, one of my favorite authors, recently came to Atlanta on a book tour for his latest book Zero History. I ended up getting two books signed, because they said you had to buy the book there, so I had that one, plus the one I had already bought and brought with me. Oh well.
Gibson’s work has been a big part of developing my enthusiasm in reading over last few years. I hadn’t been much of a reader as I was never introduced or made to read anything of any interest in high school or college. Kathleen and I decided to start a book club in late 2007, and since I have read every Gibson novel to date, except for this newest addition, Zero History (it’s in the queue), and dozens and dozens of other books.
Saturday night Kathleen and I went down to the drunken unicorn to see Madeline.
