We had so much fun at the show tonight! Chris Koza, who if you haven't heard of him, is a highly acclaimed local artist -- check out the link WAY down on the right. He plays folksy rock, and has two CDs out. He is talented enough to play the guitar and harmonica at the same time, (and as Christine added, "well, so did Bob Dylan," but I continued, "well, since I don't have the talent for either, I'm impressed!",) and has both the ability to write beautiful ballads and rock your brains out.
The location was superb as well. The show was at the Mill City Museum, in Mill Ruins Park -- an outdoor space surrounded by ruins from the old flour mill that burned down eons ago along the Mississippi River. So, so cool. I definitely want to go back and check out the museum sometime -- it supposedly chronicles the history of Minneapolis. Christine went with her dad when he was in town, and she said it was pretty cool.
The people-watching was also spectacular -- I've never seen more thong-buttcrack coupled with "muffin top" flab in one sitting before. Sheesh. Pull up yo' pants!
My only complaint? Sitting on rubble for a two hour concert -- my tushie was numb by the end of the show! We agreed -- next time, we'd each bring our "chair in a sack."
This weekend is shaping up to be pretty busy for me. I may go to an art show tomorrow night, and then on Saturday, I am planning on visiting my friend Janelle, who just had a baby. Saturday night . . . Tapes 'n Tapes at First Ave! Wooooo! And man, I have to make time to get to the Wedge. SO, if you don't hear from me, have a great weekend and I'll post about all of the insanity on Sunday.
