Weekly Update

Last night, Greg and I went up to the Capitol Theatre in Port Chester, New York, to see Edie Brickell & New Bohemians. Greg has been an Edie fan since he was five; something about her music resonated with him when he was a kid, and it still does. It was such a fun show; Edie exudes a really playful nature, and the way she related to and played with the crowd was just magical. One of the songs on their new album is called “What Makes You Happy,” and watching the video of it where she is on roller skates most of the time will make you smile. I read that she told her husband that she wants a skate barn on their property, which amused him. Her husband, by the way, is Paul Simon.
