In order: Emmylou Harris, Patty Griffin, Shawn Colvin, Buddy Miller. They’re making their second go-around of “Three Girls and Their Buddy.” Supposedly it was a very successful tour the first time. They’ll be at the Beacon Theater on February 20. Emmylou has been around forever – she’s a legend. Y’all should know by now how I feel about Patty. Shawn Colvin (she and I aren’t on a first name basis yet) is cool – I’ve heard a few of her songs. I’m sure I’ve heard Mr. Miller, but I’m embarrassed to admit that I’m not all that familiar. This should be a great show.
In the afternoon (it’s 1:40 am right now), I’ll be attending a student’s performance in a pretty fun play. Lane and Algernon and Cecily and Jack Worthing and cucumber sandwiches and Bunburying. And copious amounts of wit to wit. Yes, you know the one. It’s an earnest one. It’s important. I can’t wait.
