I am not a Lyle Lovett fan, but I am a human being. Because I am a human being, I am ABSOLUTELY a fan of this tune. One of the happiest days in my life may have been the day I walked off a hangover into the DC Farmers’ Market and saw a folk band playing the song. If it hadn’t been in DC it would have been the HAPPIEST…
Is there any chance I could go see Bret Michaels and skip everything besides this?
I saw the Pietasters most recently at Artscape this summer. They were fantastic. They always are.
Virginia Coalition is ABSOLUTELY the best band you’re not listening to. Unless you’re not listening to U2. There aren’t people that don’t listen to U2, are there?

This is how last year’s Christmas party ended…
That’s my girlfriend cleaning up vomit. The vomit happened to be on the ceiling. It is what it is.
Oh…and last year’s party also involved the following….
Ours were of course much manlier than this, but you get the point. This is not to be missed…like…say…ever.
