A Weekend of Chaos — Or a Weekend in the Life of KJStJ

frazzled_tag_magnet-r1351250078e04833aaeab0f1f0a9f163_x7js9_8byvr_324It’s amazing when there are weeks when I look forward to having a moment to sit back and relax….at my cubicle. It’s Friday and I’m already tired of what’s going to be happening for the next 72 hours —

Saturday starts off with a visit to Skin Beauty Bar (@SkinBeautyBar), my favorite relaxing oasis. Some time, and laughs with the ladies there before Bonnie and I rush off to the Taste of DC (note to self: Check your calendar before jumping on a Living Social deal) and then it’s home to get ready for the always awesome Miss Adams Morgan Pageant with the crew.

Then Sunday, I’ll be at the 9:30 Club to see one of my favorite musicians — Citizen Cope — while Cope and the band celebrate the 10th Anniversary of the “Clarence Greenwood Recordings” album. This, I have to admit, is one of his best. Regardless if you are a fan, you have heard at least one song from it. For you Amazon Prime peoples….you can listen to the entire album for free. Give it a try, you probably will start looking to see when he’s coming through your city.

I’m a HUGE fan — anytime Cope is in the DC area I’m there. Shoot, one year Bonnie and I drove up to Towson to see him….and had a blast. Each performance is completely different and “new.” I’m actually surprised, especially since he’s run into me enough to recognize me, that I haven’t been put on a “do not let within 50 feet” list……well, that would break my heart as I’m not stalking, all those moments surprised the hell outta me. But, he gets points for recognizing a random fan from the DC area.

Actually, now that I look at what I’m up to, I’ve had more insane weekends, so I’m done whining.


 

Dupont Brass

Missed DuPont Brass (@DupontBrassHU) while they popped up a couple of weeks ago? You can still buy their new album “Crewsin: Sounds of the City”. It’ll help you get through the long 6 months until we see them again.

For those of you who are curious as to why I’m obsessed with the Brass-A-Holics (@BrassAHolics), I’m excited to let you know that they are swinging through DC again! Tickets went on sale for their November 15th show at the Hamilton (@thehamiltondc) earlier this week. If you have a chance, and feel the need to party — GO! But, get your ticket soon, their fan base here in DC is growing by the moment.

Well…I’m out — for those wondering, the new job is awesome and I’m finally settling in to a different workplace, which means — more random posts from me. See ya!
