What a weekend. Friday I biked with camping gear down to Pickathon for about 24 hours. Biked home for our annual block party. Took a nap in the middle of it then rallied in the front yard with Cuban cigars, aged tawny port, and Alchemist beer until 1am. Sunday morning Lizzie and I took the Frankenmoster swimming then I went back out to Pickathon for another 7 hours of music.

The band above, My Bubba, was the easy winner for me of the fest. I caught both My Bubba sets and am smitten. These women are talented and funny and talented.

Bands I saw/heard:
Patrick Watson
Mac Demarco
Alvvays
King Sunny Ade
Open Mike Eagle
Yo La Tengo
Town Mountain
Boulevards
My Bubba
10 String Symphony
Hurray for the Riff Raff
Dan Deacon
Cory Henry
Jeff Tweedy

We’ve been crazy busy and I’ve neglected this corner of the internet for some time now. But I’m motivated for Music Monday because Lizzie and I went to an amazing concert of Arvo Pärt music last night by The Ensemble of Oregon. It was a rare pleasure to hear his music live in a small room performed by a small (but talented) ensemble.

Music Monday – Leap Year Edition

February 29, 1976: Ned Rorem’s “Book of Hours” for flute and harp is premiered at Alice Tully Hall, NYC. It’s performed on this recording by Fenwick Smith and Ann Hobson Pilot, both long-serving Boston Symphony Orchestra members I was fortunate enough to hear play weekly for many years.
