Its funny how music takes you back

So last night I decided to pop in an data disc that had a group called Foreign Exchange on it. For those who are unfamiliar with the Exchange, they are a fantastic, not too well known hip hop group that never really got big. I do recommend finding them on Itunes and buying their album. While listening to them, it brought me back to the Winter / Spring / Summer of '05. A time when I was very close with the guys from Tracy Street (which then it was East Main Street). Back to when (in my old apartment) Chris and I would have random people over at random hours of the night. Also back to when I was Dj-ing on the regular. And also to the time when I met Hillary. This album really brought me back.....strange how music will do that to you. Im really looking forward to going home for the holidays and seeing everyone. 05' was one of the most eventfull crazy years ever, and I find it strange that I still think about it now. As you get older the chapters of your life are so detailed and you can always remember them as if it were yesterday.

As for life is going well. I just finished Midterm week and have 4 A's an one B+, so Im really satisfied in my school aspect. Hillarys 21st birthday is right around the corner and Im excited to celebrate that with her! And Outback is still the same old Outback. Well its time to get moving and get ready for work. I have to be at Outback from 4:30pm - 11:30 (ish).

One of the best shows I've seen in a long time

A overview of last night...... So it was a pretty rainy night October 11th. Hillary and I took the train into Manhattan and took the Subway to Webster Hall. The tickets were at the Will Call, however the line seemed to move fairly quickly and we didn't really wait in the rain too long to get in which was nice. We got inside and set up shop in the front row. On the left of us were these really nice girls from Ireland, and to our right we two girls (which one had asked if we at Jamiroquai last year b/c she too was in the front row). And behind us were two really annoying girls who bitched about how Hillary and I were in front and just bitching and being annoying in general. A group called the Double opened for the Jaxx. They are a rock group, whose music only pierced Hillary and my ears and sounded nothing close to what Basement Jaxx plays. Soon enough though they were finished and it was approximately around 9:45pm. The Jaxx were supposed to come on at 10:00pm, they hit the stage at 10:15pm. Then with a burst of energy the music came on the the performers came out. They opened with "Good Luck" off their Kish Kash album. The outfits were absolutely crazy but th performers pulled off the feel of the show very well. Basement Jaxx then performed "Romeo". But the songs I were looking forward to were: Hush Boy (Which wasn't performed at all), Oh my Gosh, Everybody and Bingo Bango. After Romeo they performed "Oh My Gosh" which sent the crowd crazy...and yeah well myself haha. I really like the live band aspect of the show to. They had brass players as well as a: guitarist, drummer, and percussion. One of the highlights of the night though was during the performance of "Red Alert", one of the female performers put the microphone in front of Hillary, and we sang part of the chorus with the group. Basement Jaxx really knows how to get the crowd involved and they really know how to put on a show. Before we knew it however the show was just about over, and the encore song was "Bingo Bango". At the end, the stage hands were beginning to clean up and one of them gave Hillary the setlist for the show. Pretty Awesome if you ask me. Those crazy Brits put on a damn good show for sure!

Basement Jaxx tomorrow night!

Well its finally here.....the Basement Jaxx concert is tomorrow and Im really excited. I've never seen them before and their only playing two U.S. tour dates this year (NYC and LA). It should be a great show and I will definately have pictures posted Thursday sometime throughout the day. Also next monday Hillary and I will be going to Crobar to see Danity Kane. That should be an interesting show.....hopefully it wont be too too ghetto. Anywho, that's it for now details to come later after the show!!!!
