It’s Friday, and all you can think about is the weekend, and frankly, after this week, who can blame you? I mean, DC’s been obsessing about Wal-Mart, the TSA, and the leadership of the House all week long. Who doesn’t want to stop for a few days, drink some Four Loko with some college students, and spend the weekend engaged in Harry Potter-related activities. I mean, that’s what I’m dreaming of.
But, before we go and let the weekend subsume our very being, I’ve got a quick PSA about a concert that’s happening Monday night at 9:30 Club. It’s hard to believe that this year represents fifteen years since probably my favorite record of the 1990s, Reel Big Fish’s Turn the Radio Off, with their single Sell Out. I think that’s the only of my CDs from that decade that I actually wore out entirely. Anyhow, they’re playing with other ska great The Aquabats. Tickets are still available, and you can totally wear a big suit and skank it on out on the floor of the 9:30. Me? I wish I could be there, but I’ve got a prior engagement.
Now, if you’ll excuse me, I have to go cope with the fact that I am really old.
