My dog had an anal sac rupture on thursday so the major theme this weekend was “watch dog sleep, clean dog, give dog pills, annoy dog with sprays and wipes”. However, I did lay out our new raised beds in the front yard. I also abused one of the serverbeach boxes into coming back up only to promptly fall back over :(. However, I was granted a reprieve from the non-stop dog-watching fest by the girl. She said it was okay for me to take off and go see Vienna Teng in Raleigh last night. So, I did.
The show was in a little bar in Raleigh. I was surprised I didn’t get lost trying to find it. The bar was very much a bar. It was the rough shape of a tunnel and had about the same acoustics However, the folks who ran the place were clearly very respectful of the performers and the audience. It was quiet, not-quite-smoke-free but close.
The show included Alex Wong another musician she’s played with before and with whome she is currently working on a new album. They were quite amusing with banter going back and forth.
All in all a pretty good show, I’m glad I got to hear her in concert, finally.
