A Swinging Time

Ah, summer in San Jose.  Who could ask for anything more. 

First, a noon concert featuring classical guitarist Steve Lin at Le Petit Trianon

Then in the evening, a blast from my past, a chance to see Big Bad Voodoo Daddy!  Thanks to Target Summer Pops.  I was decked out in Target attire.

A long time ago, when I worked at Adobe, a co-worker introduced me to this band.  I think we went to the F/X Club to see them.  Remember that place!  The old porno Pussycat Theatre where I watched Twin Peaks and ate cherry pie.  This article sums it up nicely.

So tonight, friends and I enjoyed listening to BBVD.  A man asked me to dance with him.  What a swinger.  We had a swinging time.

Are you furloughed every Friday now? I notice that you've taken several Fridays off.

I'm at my work vacation cap. Let me know if you'd like to cycle this Friday. It would fun to ride from Milpitas out to Pleasanton for lunch, or to climb Diablo.

I caught BBVD opening for the Pretenders perhaps 15 years ago. Speaking of oldies, I went to see Smithereens last night in SF with my concert-going buddy.
