Thursday Night Highlight

My head is a-bobbin' today having stayed up way past my bed time last night. Was out on the town with a few friends to see Ashleigh Still's live recording at Dakota Jazz Club in Minneapolis. It was well worth the sacrifice of sleep.

Even after knowing Ashleigh, hearing her sing nearly every Sunday since teen-hood, her voice continues to amaze me. And then when she began sharing songs she's written...good freakin' grief. So she can sing and write and play...and oh yeah, she's completely drop-dead gorgeous. All that talent and beauty, you'd think she'd be such a snob...nope. She's sweet as pie.

Can't talk about last night's music without mentioning The Dirty Dishes (isn't that a great name for a band!). They're all rock-star quality musicians as far as I'm concerned.

Ashleigh Still and the Dirty Dishes will be coming out with their first album soon. I promise, you will want to know about it. Find out more at www.myspace.com/ashleighstill.



A few gorgeous friends I happened to share a table with: Keely, Courtney and Nadine.


This is us trying to find our way back to the car. A lot to ask of St. Paul girls in Minneapolis, but we figured it out. If I had the money, I'd take a cab (or a limo) to Minneapolis to avoid the frustration of getting lost nearly every time.

Ugh, I live in Minneapolis and still hate trying to maneuver around downtown (take me off Nicolet Mall or Washington and I could literally be wandering for days.)
