Mahler’s Symphony No 6

Last Thursday (4/23) Kathleen and I went to see the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra perform Mahler’s Sixth Symphony with her boss and her boss’s husband. Donald Runnicles was the conductor. He’s the Chief Conductor of the BBC Scottish Orchestra, so that’s pretty cool.

I really enjoyed it, and will have to start taking advantage of Kathleen’s job to go see more shows by the ASO.

Her boss treated us to dinner at Atmosphere beforehand. Which was awesome of them. And the food there was really good.

Kathleen and I went to Athens to see Wilco last Monday night. I honestly hadn’t thought about the coincidence of the show being on 4/20… Oh well… Had a good time. They played for a little over 2 hours.

And they mostly played old stuff, which really made me happy. Not that I don’t like Sky Blue Sky, but this was the first time I’d seen them live.

Venice is Sinking

Kathleen and I went to see James’ band Venice is Sinking last Friday night. It was a CD release show at Kavarna in Oakhurst. They were great of course.

Today, I found out that Merge Records XX festival tickets went on sale today, and they sold out today… that sucks. I was really wanting to go. I’ve never seen Superchunk in concert, and they don’t tour much at all these days… oh well…
