This Desert

Last night Scott and I were supposed to see Daniel Johnston at the Crescent Ballroom in Phoenix, a show that both of us had been looking forward to for weeks. However, a few hours before showtime Johnston cancelled his performance (something about now wanting to get on an airplane?), but Crescent still pulled through with an awesome (free) show full of so many amazing local musicians.

Before the show Scott and I had dinner with an old friend at Crescent. We both had burritos and steaming hot cups of coffee. Last night was probably the coldest evening so far this fall, and since Crescent leaves their front doors wide open, we definitely needed the warm boost!

The show itself was just magical. Since it was very last minute, not too many people showed up, but I could feel the room buzzing with excitement. My favorite sets of the night were from Reubens Accomplice (they played twice!), and Jim Adkins (of Jimmy Eat World). I've seen Jim play solo for many years now, and each time I'm always impressed with the energy that he disperses during his set. I swear, one of these days I'm going to actually see him play with Jimmy Eat World (although, I did hear their set from afar about a month ago).

The past two days it has been downright chilly in Phoenix, so bundling has been a must. My new Kipper Booties from Blowfish Shoes have been keeping me extra cozy during this cold spirt we're having. I heard that it's supposed to warm up into the 80's this week, so I'm trying to soak in every moment of the cold that I can.

Today I have some reading to catch up on, and hope to go on a nice, chilly walk (with a hot drink in hand, of course).

Have you been to any great shows lately? What are you up to today?

  1. I can't believe I missed that show!!! I love Reubens Accomplice!!! Maybe next time. :(

    Stay warm... Tonight is suppose to be another cold one!!! But I am not complaining :)

  2. I'm hoping to see Mumford & Sons in December at The Hollywood Bowl, if it doesn't interfere with finals. I love local shows too though :)

  3. OMG, this outfit is perfect. I love neutral colors, they can portray such a varied amount of looks - this one is rather bad ass. ;)

  4. I love your sweater!!

    I saw Daniel Johnston here in Toronto a few years back and he was awesome...I'm sorry he cancelled on you!
