Turkuaz New Year’s Run

December 14th, 2019

If you’re one of those bah-humbug people around this time of the year, I get it. Thanksgiving was just a few weeks ago, and it’s already time for another big family gathering. Hopefully everyone has gotten over your brother’s latest girlfriend giving your grandma a piece of her mind about throat tattoos. Now, you can look forward to respectfully nodding through your uncle’s life advice while strategically avoiding the eggnog sloshing out of his coffee cup since you only own three nice shirts.

Collidoscope at Pearl’s/Your Mom’s House

January 30th, 2018

The better the band, the later they play. This sometimes-inconvenient reality dictated that the band I was going to see didn’t start until, technically, the day *after* the date stamped on the ticket. I found myself shivering on an ice-caked sidewalk at half past midnight, clutching a ticket and thinking seriously about the wisdom of late-night shows after the age of 30.
