I immediately realized that my preconception of a sedate folkloric evening was all wrong and that it was a mistake to leave my earlove plugs at home. Whatever, that all fell by the wayside and I opened my eyes and ears wide to take in the new Lila. She opened with a woman-centric remake of Black Magic Woman, belting out "Don't turn your back on me baby, I just might pick up my magic stick!" Recordings never really fully reveal a singer's vocal power, so I hadn't really expected that voice - a voice with enough wattage to light up the audience all the way to the back of the theater. We cheered wildly for that first number and all the rest.
I used earth day as an excuse to get up early and walk to work, instead of cycling. I noticed a huge lot full of wildflowers on the corner of Market and Water. Anyone notice it's full of borage and poppies? For those who don't know what borage is:

Seems like it's because I'm always too tired to write, but I suspect it's also partly because I feel dumb when I try to write about music. I will perservere, though.
