Lady A

So, the weekend was pretty fun. My parents came up on Saturday to help take care of the kids while my wife and I took a couple of nights to spend 'out' together. Saturday was an enjoyable trip to St. Paul for our friend's annual fundraiser for CF - With One Breath. In the past, we have enjoyed the silent auction, apps and drinks, with the bands. This year, they switched it up and did mostly a casino night - with LOTS of donated prizes - as well as some wine and beer tasting and a live auction. We spent a few hours there, won a few prizes, and really enjoyed getting out.

On Sunday, the boys (me, my son, and my dad) enjoyed a Gophers baseball game at the dome. Unfortunately, the UofM nine couldn't pull it out against Stony Brook. We did see an all-american performance from an athlete on Stony Brook - 2 HRs, multiple defensive plays throughout the game at 3B, and a closing inning for the save in the 9th.

Afterward, we had a nice dinner, then my wife and I headed to Target Center for another night out. Thompson Square opened the show. And though we missed most of their act, we did catch their trademark "Are You Gonna Kiss Me ... Or Not?" Darius Rucker rocked the second opener with his new country songs, a couple old Hootie and the Blowfish classics, and a "Purple Rain" finale.

When it was Lady A's turn to come out, they definitely made a production of it. Though I would've rather had them turn the volume down so I could hear more of the beautiful voices and instrumentl tones, we did love the show. They brought a 7-yr-old fan on stage to help sing "American Honey" - and she knew every world! My personal favorite was "Hello World" - especially since most of the song only involves the piano and an outstanding voice - with great lyrics.

Awesome night! Awesome weekend!
