Paul and Lorraine This Weekend!
Let's start with my favorite picture of King Lear, taken by Neverwear's Cat Mihos. I love this shot, and posts should have pictures. Keep reading and see just how cool this shot IS.
It's -17 out right now. Warmed up some since last night. Heh. It doesn't stop us here tho, in fact, people go to great lengths to prove how hardy they are here. Some people are happy as they can now go Ice Fishing.
This is an activity where one hauls a little house onto a lake, complete with a heater, and cuts a hole in the ice and fishes. Not oddly, I believe alcohol also plays a large part in this activity. I don't do it myself, but judging from the number of little houses now on the lake, it is a popular pastime here.
Many people here, the really cool ones, go out and hear music in lovely warm pubs. Which brings me to a point.
My band, Paul and Lorraine, is back at Charlie's Pub, in Stillwater MN this weekend, Friday and Saturday, 7:30 to 11:30! We've had some time off this fall, and I am VERY ready to rock! It's warm, it's cozy, the food is great, the beer flows freely (well, not FREE) and most importantly, I will be there!
If you haven't been to a Paul and Lorraine show, come down. It's more like being in your living room with your coolest friends and a bartender, than anything else. You will make new friends. You will have a great time. We play Irish music, but not the stupid kind. If I tell you the history of a song, it will not be true, and will be entertaining. If there's something you want to hear, we'll give it a shot. (Especially if you buy Paul one)
We will also be there on New Years Eve! More importantly, the place is also a really wonderful historic old hotel, you don't have to leave at the end of the night! And as a bonus, we will also be playing the night of New Years Day, Friday and Saturday BOTH. You can spend one night of wild rumpas, and then the next day nursing your hangover in your private hot tub, then come back to the pub and laugh at everyone from the night before. How perfect!
Speaking of cool things, this came for me the other day! I will shoot it properly once I have it all framed, but here's a quick look. A Bengal painting by Rachael Rossman! I love her work and was so happy when she told me she wanted to paint my Bengals. I'd seen her work when she did Amanda, with horsie Glorious, and then again when she painted Cabal. The girl is GOOD! And I have wonderful art. Thank you Rachael!!
I think I will end now, as it is time for me to go OUT (And at -17 one COULD end if one is not careful) with another shot by Cat Mihos, this one of Mim, whose eyes seem to be saying it all:
"You are an idiot. I am staying IN by the fire"
Love and Gigs and Art and Cold,
