Whatever: Musical wish list

Sometimes, I am a teenager. At least in my mind. The mirror tells me otherwise (wrinkles, grays, pounds) but my mind and my ears tell me I am still 18. Take for instance, my year's wish list of music to see. My musical taste runs the gamut from bluegrass to full on rock n roll.
I want to see several big acts (Bieber is not one) and I am willing to go without to see them. I don't have posters on my wall of my favorite lead singers, but I do have a pin board, which is way cooler.

I have been pretty lucky that I have seen a lot of music in my day. My girlfriends Stacey and Nikki are probably the only other girls that I am friends with  that have seen as much cool music as I have. Last night at dinner, for instance, Stacey dropped Aerosmith in their heyday like she was saying she saw the latest episode of Downton Abbey. I love Aerosmith, so I am "totes jealous" as my teenage daughter would say.  Totes. Nikki, well she is another story that is too long to tell.

Nikki saw the Dead with me

Chattanooga has a vibrant music scene and a score of twenty somethings that beat me to the cool music (Jack White,for instance) and so I have to be on my toes.  Luckily, my husband is as into music and seeing live music as I am. We make a decent team.

There are so many cool genres of music to hear in town that I really could just go out almost every weekend and hear a new band. For instance, I am going to hear Little Country Giants in a few weeks with the  local singer/song writer Tiffany Taylor who I personally think is the one of the coolest girls in town.  So, in lieu of spending every penny I have on big time music acts, I will get to see up and coming acts and discover new music loves.
Totes cool.
See ya in June, Justin!
