Lord, beer me strength. I have the opportunity to see my all-time lady crush three times in a week and I really hope I can survive all those shows. I’ve seen Jenny Lewis many times but it’s been several years. Her new album is an absolute musical masterpiece and I’m so excited to see this tour.
Wednesday is her Austin City Limits taping, which I actually won tickets to. I usually get my friend Kelly to get me passes since he works for the same venue where they do the tapings but sometimes he’s not able to come by passes. I decided to cover my bases by entering the Rickey giveaway. I can’t believe I actually won! When I asked Kelly for the passes I planned to ask my friend Alicia to join me. I’m really excited that I was still able to do that.
Friday she’s playing at Stubb’s. October is just about the only time an outdoor venue in Austin is bearable. I’m going to that one with my sister and best friend. My sister’s first concert after having Nels was Jenny Lewis at Stubb’s with Dana and me. Now Dana’s first concert after having Lacey will be the same place, artist, and companions. Crazy, huh?
And next Wednesday I’m taking my friend Jason to Gruene Hall, the oldest dancehall in Texas, about an hour south of Austin for the final show of my Jenny Lewis Trifecta.
Even in my healthy days, three shows in one week might have been a stretch. At least it’s not three shows in three days, which I have also done.
that all happened in under 2 minutes
this is honestly a spiritual experience
Really excellent representation of the characters. Like, this could be a video resume for the entire office.
