I have a few guidelines that I try to live by:
- Be kind and give more than you take.
- Trust people, until they give you a reason not to.
- An Ed Hardy face tattoo is a legitimate reason not to trust someone.
- When one of your favorite bands is coming to town, you don't think; you buy the ticket and take the ride!
I did a bit of a doubletake when Leftover Salmon announced their acoustic "Living Room Tour" a few months back. I've been lucky enough to see Leftover Salmon in some pretty intimate settings, but seeing Gypsy Sally's on the lineup announcement seemed too good to be true. Gypsy Sally's has been a fantastic addition to the DC music scene over the last few years; often booking bands that should be way too popular for a venue of that size (Gypsy Sally's has a capacity of only 300). Kudos to their talent buyer, Dustin, for bringing some of the nation's best musical acts to the Georgetown waterfront! Unfortunately for the chronic procrastinators out there, tonight's show at Gypsy Sally's is officially sold out. But fortunately, Leftover Salmon has 2 more shows this week within a 2 hour drive of our nation's capital...and somehow there are still a few tickets available for purchase.
Don't sleep on these shows, friends! I'll be on the Scene to photograph the DC, Annapolis, and Richmond shows, so if you see me, please come say hi.
