Over the Rhine is coming to B'ham!


Hello. I'm very excited. Michelle and Christa have told me today that my favorite band, Over the Rhine, is coming to Birmingham on February 4 at Workplay. The tickets are $15 a piece. Woo hoo! If you have never seen Over the Rhine live then you need to! They have been my favorite band since I was eighteen years old.
I've made a link on the side of my blog to listen to their new album, The Trumpet Child, whenever you get the hankering. It's a good one. I don't get excited about concerts very often (mostly because they cost money), but I WILL NOT miss this one. It's worth every penny. Hope to see you there.
PS... My blog is named after one of their songs, "Happy with Myself?", that came out in '93 or something. It's one of the first songs I ever heard by them. The video reeks of the early 90's.

I better hurry up and get my tickets. I saw it this morning and thought, "I wonder if they are already sold out." I still haven't bought them but I better get a move on. Will Quinn go with you?

Hmmm...so let me get this straight? While all of your peers were dancing to "whoomp there it is", jammin to the Gin Blossoms, or crying over Whitneys "I will always love you"...you were excited over some band called "swimmming the rhine..boating on the rhine..jumpping in the rhine...or something? Different...yep definitely different...Bet you were fun on Fridays.....:-)
