Why are you reading this… you should be @ WorkPlay!
Why are you home reading this blog posting when you could be here at WorkPlay?!? Of course, it’s still an hour away from showtime as I plug away typing this on my MotoQ.
The doors must’ve opened long before 8pm because I got here just before 8 and there were NO tables or booths left directly opposite the stage and 4 available along the sides. The floor is open, presumably for dancing (can we say mosh pit)??
OK, so you’re asking what the fuss is about? First, Michael Warren is opening the show. I’ve been tracking this local artist for 2 years and am a big fan. Oddly enough, so is my 12 yr old daughter. See www.MichaelWarrenMusic.com for details. He alone is the reason I’ve gathered a group of friends for the performance… but it gets better.
Tonight is LMBO’s CD release party. If you think like I did that you’ve never heard of them… you’d only be half right. They got famous as the backing band for the current American Idol. Yes, they’re none other than the Little Memphis Blues Orchestra who helped Taylor Hicks make it in the local Birmingham music scene and who played with him this past summer when he played City Stages.
This oughta be fun. The crowd is building and there are still a few tickets available. What are you doing still reading this? Jump onto your vespa and scoot on down here! You won’t regret it.
p.s. I posted pictures on my flickr acount for those who couldn’t make it. 🙂
