Friday: Margie, my college roommate, was in town from NYC. I bought us tickets to see Morningwood at the Independent. The opening bands sucked so bad that we drank heavily to stay entertained. As Fast As and The Lashes - never ever again. However, Morningwood didn't disappoint. Frontwoman, Chantal Claret, put on a wild show with gritty, raspy vocals reminiscent of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs. A friend said she looks too much like the Snapple lady. Ouch.
Saturday: What a beautiful day! I spent most of it hanging out at Dolores Park, eating snacks and drinking beer. That left me super tired for my night out with friends. I celebrated at Home in the Castro and ran into ljkrissy, who was going to see a band at Cafe du Nord. A few of us tried to muster up energy for going out, but in the end we all went home early.
Sunday: I spent the day at Malibu Grand Prix, racing cars and playing mini golf. So much fun!
All in all, a wonderful birthday. Though my throat hurts now from all the screaming I did when whipping around the track. And I'm tired. Man, I feel old.
