Dave Matthews Band was in Baltimore last December. It was beautiful.
I like Dawes a lot. I might like Shovels & Rope even more.
Citizen Cope is amazing. I think I might sneak in a trip to RHL Saturday night.
You may remember Bob Schneider as the dude who made one of the five best songs of the last five years (maybe)…
9.

My friend Kevin Van Valkenburg and I are going to go see “The To Do List” and drink pineapple juice all weekend. I can’t wait.
Also, apparently the Farm Fair has Swimming Pig Races this year. I’m going to guess it will be the greatest thing ever because the picture looks like the single most adorable thing I’ve ever seen.
