It's been a long time...

So, we've majorly slacked off on updating this thing. We've been super busy doing all kinds of fun stuff. Here a quick list of what we've been up to over the last month or so:

Nicole-

- Elvis Costello at the Ryman. This was my tenth time seeing him and coincidentally my tenth year of fandom. Since I am really lame that was kind of a special show for me. He played for a long-ass time and pulled out a few rare gems such as "Beyond Belief" and "You Belong to Me".

- Dining Club. I'd been talking about starting a dining club forever and this month I finally did it. So far we've eaten Vietnamese food at Pho Yen Hoa and celebrated Seis de Mayo at Las Cazuelas. Both meals were kinda hit or miss for me but we had an excellent time just hanging out. I hope we can have many more meetings this summer.

- The Hives at the Wildhorse. This was seriously one of the best shows I've ever seen. The Hives have more energy than is humanly possible. High kicks abounded. At one point I turned into a 13 year old girl and had to touch the hand of Howlin Pele Almquist. Only criticism I have is that the guitar player has really freaky eyes. I can't explain it but he really creeped me out.

April-

I'm so sorry that we left you without a dope beat to step to! I will make a greater effort to update this blog at least once a week, even when things get crazy. Scout's honor.

-The Kids in the Hall at the Ryman. Fabulous. Wonderful. Completely orgasmic. This Canadian comedy troupe were easily just as adorable as they ever had been (and, incidentally, were just as funny as they ever had been, too). They delighted me with some completely fresh material and brought back some of their most beloved characters (Buddy Cole, Gavin, etc.) in hilarious new situations. They also did one of my favorite skits word for word: the Chicken Lady as a phone sex operator. My face hurt at the end of the night from smiling so much. One of my favorite nights ever.

-Southern Girls Rock and Roll Camp. Both Nicole and I, as Assistant Directors, have been extremely busy contributing to this amazing organization. It is always the absolute funnest week of my summer and I am completely honored that they allow me to become more involved with the camp each year. But, sister, it's a lot of work! We are always in need of volunteers. To find out how you can contribute or to learn more about the organization, visit http://www.sgrrc.org/. Be sure to come out for the showcase at MTSU's Tucker Theater on Saturday, July 19th!

-Carmen's Taqueria. I know I already did an entry on Carmen's, but Jesus Cristo, it just keeps getting better. Their empanadas are, for lack of a better term, da bomb. Just go there. You'll probably run into me.
