October Live Music Radness

Chilly lately, right? Which means perfect weather for chili. And hoodies. And new fall shoes. And your annual physical to make sure your S.A.D. thwarting anti-depressant prescription is all set.

The old Bachelor has been a busy little butterfly lately (a bitchy one, too), but all that should stop soon (well, not the bitching). The month from hell officially just ended, and while my downstairs is a sea of unpacked boxes, I'm officially ensconsced in the new pad, having fled the suburbs back into the friendly confines of Clevo.

Right now, in fact, I'm sitting in my otherwise empty old apartment, waiting for the gas man to come and shut my service off. Until then, it is just me, this laptop, and a few periodicals and a Mulisch novel to kill time with. And then goodbye to Cleveland Heights, hello Collinwood. I'm super excited about this, and even more excited about the fact that by this time next week I'll be back in the swing of things, with all the time I need to do the things I want to do. Which will, of course, include seeing shows. Speaking of which ...

No clue. I think maybe once a couple years ago, before my time, but I'm not sure about that. I am sure that I'll be there for the show, though!
