You guys! I spent six hours listening to live music this past weekend. SIX. In fact the entire weekend felt like a giant celebration. A celebration of life that is. So much good music. Friday night, right before the freak storm and tornado warnings and the world ending, I made it to Casa Loma to take in St. Louis based Pokey Lafarge. Imagine my surprise when one of the opening bands was a mariachi band. What? By the time Pokey and friends made it to the stage the crowd had tripled in size. They played every song from their new album and I renewed my love of two-tone dress shoes and washboard rhythm. However the best part of the entire evening happened just as I was about to leave. As I left the balcony and walked into the mass of humanity, trying to sneak up to the stage for a better picture, I was unexpectedly thrown into a live rendition of La La Blues. Best. Exit. Ever.
