GREAT Live Music + Comedy@ Improv + Tasty Beverages + Good Food + Sports = PERFECT weekend

I cannot begin to tell you exactly how excited I am that I will be seeing/hearing Big Head Todd & the Monsters perform live tomorrow night.

The first (and only) time I have seen them perform, was back around '99 at a club I bartended at. Marlboro (yeah...the nasty cigarette) held a "secret show" there. The only way you could get in the door was to have a certain amount of Marlboro Miles. No one who was coming to the show knew exactly what band they were going to see. There couldn't have been more than a hundred people there. It was AWESOME. It was so close-up... It was, by far, one of the best shows I have ever seen/heard. Marlboro also had Cheap Trick & Soul Asylum play there for their "secret shows"....but as good as those bands were...they didn't come close to Big Head Todd.

Along with seeing them tomorrow night...I'll be seeing one of my favorite comedians, Mitch Fatel, perform @ the Improv this weekend...and hitting up a festival on Sunday...and eating steak, drinking beer & watching sports on Monday night. Ahhhh...the life... =)
