Let the festivities begin!

So I have the rest of the week off. This has been planned for almost a year.

Last year, rosepurr and I went to the Americana Music Association Awards show at the Ryman. It was a fantastic night of great performances and sitting in the midst of famous people. At separate points in the evening, John Hiatt and Joan Baez walked past me, just inches away. Tomorrow night, we will again be in attendance.

The awards show is part of a four-day festival, full of producers, performers, songwriters, and other music industry types, attending workshops and such during the day and then hitting the bars for music at night. After the awards last year, rosepurr and I both had to go home to work the next day. She has an unavoidable training the next day so she will be doing that again.

But, since it's a relatively quiet time in my job, I just took the time off to sleep during the day and do some barhopping/music-listening at night. The last show of each night doesn't even start til midnight, and they're some of the bands I'm most interested in seeing - in particular, the Bottle Rockets and Reckless Kelly. This link provides a complete list of the evening shows. You buy a wristband for $45 and it gets you in all of them. Sadly, beer is not included in that $45, but it is available, of course.

Obviously, I wish rosepurr were able to take more time off to go with me. For instance, tonight she's still out of town for work, so I'm on my own. It'll still be fun.
