constant craving

Last night we went to see k.d. lang & the siss boom bang perform at Wolf Trap, my favorite musical venue of all time. Full disclosure: I haven't actually been to many musical venues, but this one is the best.

About 20 years ago, my dad handed me Shadowland and said, "here, I think you'll like this." I did. Immensely. The k.d. lang lust has persisted ever since, giving me the opportunity to see her perform a few times including with the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra about 10 years ago. It was a perfect night, including my catcalls from the lawn (that I TRULY BELIEVE made k.d. giggle) and forcing Em to slow dance with me to k.d.'s version of A Kiss to Build a Dream On (which she originally sang with Tony Bennett).

The only other summer music plan we have is to see Idina Menzel with the National Symphony Orchestra (at Wolf Trap, of course) in August. Do you have any summer music plans?

  1. I've always wanted to see a show at Wolf Trap! And I WILL.

    So far this spring I've seen the Black Keys and Katie Herzig, and later this summer I'll see Brandi Carlile and Diana Krall. I REALLY want to see Fitz & the Tantrums (my new band crush), but I have a previous engagement. It's a 3rd of July party, and I'll just make my friends play Fitz on the stereo instead.
