Yeasayer and Washedout

My friend Chris happened to buy tickets to see the band Yeasayer at the Bluebird. Despite feeling crappy, I decided to go and boy was it a blast!  I think I lost about 5 years worth of hearing, but it was totally worth it. I’m going to have to start getting out more and listening to more live music around here.

I was a bit suspicious at first and felt out of place. Everyone was decked out in fedora hats, skin tight jeans, plaid shirts… it basically felt like an Urban Outfitters had decided to upchuck in the venue while I looked as if I had walked out of a Banana Republic.

I knew it was all worth it when the opening act came out. I will totally be checking out their new music and listen to more of Yeasayer now.
Thanks for the invite Chris!

    Glad you like the blog. My posting has become more sporadic as I get busier and find time to do less interesting things but I'll keep trying to find something substantial to post about.

    How are you liking Chicago and the grad school bit there? I've been meaning to visit the city but wonder what I'd do. If I'm in the area I'll have to get in touch with you.

  4. I love Chicago and grad school at the Univ. of Chicago is wonderful; love my lab, my labmates, and fellow classmates.

    Please let me know if you plan a visit to the city. I would love to show you around, and you're welcome to stay at my place (the view is amazing!) If your parents ever want a visit that would be wonderful too. Good luck with science!
