A Blast from the Past

My husband gave me an amazing Mother's Day present ... tickets to see The Clarks last night at The Birchmere in Alexandria, VA. I went to college with the guys in The Clarks (many) years ago.

They've built quite a name for themselves in the Pittsburgh area and were on Letterman a few years back. Every once in a while they come to Northern VA, but I've never gotten out to see them.

So last night was a real blast from my past. And I do mean blast. Those guys have improved with time. Amazing.

Check out their sound at

And Happy Mother's Day!

Hi, Andie!

It was a lot of fun ... and actually, they had an opening band from Canada (Nova Scotia, so I know that's not exactly your next-door neighbor, but still....) They were called Matt Mays and El Torpedo ( They were terrific, as well. I talked to Matt after their set and he was really nice. Even if he did talk a little funny.

It does sound like a great way to spend Mother's Day. Fun to do something pre-mom!
