Another week filled with music and events. Wednesday, May 11, I had tickets to see Cage The Elephant at the Times Union Arena in Albany but the show got moved to the Palace Theatre. My great seats were turned into General Admission Balcony-REFUND PLEASE. Heard it was a great show, oh well, hopefully I'll catch them sometime.
Instead, I went to Concord NH to see an old friend perform a FREE show at the Concord City Auditorium. I've known Scott Kirby for years and really love his music. It's a laid back, small town, chill type of sound.

Friday night, we drove across the river to Claremont NH to check out a singer/songwriter that a friend had recommended. Joe Young is from Portsmouth NH and has played at New Socials a few times before (but we had never heard of him.) He sounds likeRyan Adams, Joe Purdy, Ray LaMontagne, and Sean Hayes. During his breaks we got to talk to him socially-really nice guy and very into the Red Sox! We bought his two CDs and really like his sound.

Saturday I attended the Woodstock Union High School's Junior Prom. The King and Queen were crowned after the traditional Junior Class Promenade. The students were dressed to the nines!
