Ik hou van muziek

I've been trying to keep up on the music scene a bit more lately.. I got an external hard drive for Christmas and I was finally able to upload all of the music I've been storing away on DVDs since I traded my desktop for a laptop. I borrowed some CDs from my friend the other night.. had the chance to check out some new bands and some new albums... oh, and a huge bit of excitement for me was updating my ipod, which has had the same songs on it for over a year now. What a relief! I've been rocking out to old Sonic Youth tunes all week...

I've also been looking around to see who's playing in the city. Since I got back to the states, I've only been to two shows.. Feist and Elysian Fields. That seems kinda lame, since I'm here and bands are playing somewhere every day. So I bought tickets to see Cat Power next Month, which I'm excited about. I saw her twice in Belgium, and I really enjoyed the shows, so this should be a lot of fun. The Rosebuds are playing next week in Hoboken. It's been cool checking out venues that I've never been to, like McCarren Pool and Joe's Pub, yet another plus to getting out and doing things.

Music is a huge part of my life and it feels good to be getting back into it. I'm always put off by people who aren't into music.. people who don't listen to music seem creepy, don't they?
