There are a lot of fun weekends coming up. The first weekend in may is the Dixon May Fair. Willie Nelson is on saturday and Lynyrd Skynrd is on sunday. The next weekend after that (May 13th, 14th and 15th) is the Pin a Go Go. It's early this year, so hopefully it won't be as hot. For those of you that haven't been, Pin a Go Go is an exhibition of new and antique pinball machines and you can play them all for a flat fee! This year saturday is ten bucks, friday and sunday are five, but it's only open 10 to 4 on sunday. I love Pin a Go Go because I'm so horrible at pinball that I always lose within a minute, but this way I can play for as long as I want. And it has all the cool games, like Night Rider, the Guns and Roses game, etc.
On the music front, the Fiery Furnaces are coming up soon(April 26th) and I just found out that the Queens of the Stone Age are coming to the Empire, so I guess I'll finally get to see that venue. I've heard bad things. The show is may 31st, and tix go on sale on the 16th. You can get them at the Beat.
I hope everyone has seen the Rock the Light cover and interview in Alive and Kicking. It is so fucking funny! I am going to try to transcribe it for those who live out of town and can't get their hands on a copy, but I can't do this at work so I'm not promising anything.
I'll post again later.
