kd lang loves her job

It’s pretty obvious that kd lang likes what she does. She walked out onto the stage with a bounce in her step and a grin on her face that I might be able to replicate if – and my apologies to my darling girlfriend on this one – you told me I’d won the lottery and never had to work again, and hey, by the way, Drew Barrymore is waiting outside in a limo to take you off for a long weekend in Bermuda and ****REDACTED****.


Anyway, lang clearly is tickled pink by what she does and it comes through in her performance. She sung a little over a half-dozen songs and interspersed them with some brief patter and a fair amount of playful dancing. That’s not to say she doesn’t move well, but there was a definite sense of whimsy in it.

In five years of seeing Lyle Lovett’s annual show at Wolf Trap this is the first time he’s had an opening act, but I’d say she was a good lead in. My only disappointment is that they didn’t do a song together.

That grin, by the way? Just as big and as firmly in place when she walked off at the end as when she came on. We all should be so thrilled by what we do.

Well I used to say something in my profile about not quite being a “tinker, tailor, soldier, or spy” but Tom stole that for our about us page, so I guess I’ll have to find another way to express that I am a man of many interests.

Hmm, guess I just did.

My tastes run the gamut from sophomoric to Shakespeare and in my “professional” life I’ve sold things, served beer, written software, and carried heavy objects… sometimes at the same place. It’s that range of loves and activities that makes it so easy for me to love DC – we’ve got it all.
