Were you at Rhythm & Roots?

Hey I was there, made it two out of the three days.  It was a good time.  I got in a lot of exercise this weekend, Friday the walk to the car was more then the few times we walked State St.  There was so many different things to eat. If you weren’t hungry before you got there all the smells surely would make you. And there were lots of people funny though I didn’t run into anyone I knew.   Out of all the music I did get to hear Tift Merritt would be my favorite pick. I really enjoyed her performance.

Have You Ever Done Something Silly? Here’s one of mine.

Having a Blast

Ever do something silly? I did back last year. Bristol TN/VA has concerts throughout the summer on State St in the Farmer’s market section. Country music is predominate in this area and the bands that perform twice a week are either country or bluegrass. Last year was a bit different with four tribute bands on the listings to perform.The first three were Aerosmith, Journey and the Eagles and they all drew a larger than usual crowd. Maybe people just wanted to hear something different.

But this gave me an idea. AC DC was the last of the tribute bands to perform on Sept 8 and I had a book signing coming up on the 11th. My friend Karen and I went to State St wearing signs of my up coming book signing. Security approached us and wanted to know what we were doing. Since it was only to promote the event they allowed us to pass out the flyers.

My sign was the size of a poster board and it hung touching my calves making it difficult to walk. Karen should have been wearing that one because she’s close to six feet tall. People must have thought we were flakey but it was fun just the same. We only did that for about an hour, put our supplies back in the car and went back to enjoy the show.

Doing Something Silly

I hope they continue to have some rock bands there again this year. What do you think?   Did you go to any of the concerts? Have you ever done silly stuff like this without it being Halloween?Happy having some silly fun,
Monica

Childhood taste — how much has yours changed????

When I was in my early teens my musical taste was pretty bland. I only listened to a few artists: The Osmond Brothers, The Partridge Family, the Rolling Stones, The Beatles, David Bowie & The Who—Pretty lame! It was my younger brother Gary who was only five at the time saw a commercial advertising a KISS concert and decided he liked them. So I wanted to hear the music, too, and “Rock & Roll Over” was the current album out. I bought it and we listened to it. That album opened the door for me expanding my realm of artists. And with the birth of MTV more artists we able to be seen as well as heard.

As a young lady I saw these bands regularly on MTV and was hooked. Motley Crue was the first to catch my eye wearing leather, makeup and lots of hair; it was very visually appealing.

People that I had never heard of I started listening to. And to this day my taste has not changed my passion is still Rock music, from what is considered Pop, or soft rock, to Heavy metal. If growing up means giving up my music then I vow never to grow up..

Happy listening,

Monica
