As stated in previous posts, we’ve been slacking a bit here at HEP. We do have piles of excuses, however!
The biggest excuse for my not blogging is simply a lack of headspace. What’s been consuming my noodle? My betrothal to the better half of this blog on Friday, September 30th, of course. Thankfully, many of you who will read this were actually in attendance at the Sibling’s Fundraising event that they were nice enough to let me steal some thunder from. Michael Keany snapped some expert photos when I ambushed L at the end of Narwhal’s set. I’ve heard rumors the whole thing was also taped by Joey Gonz. Thanks Narwhal, Siblings, Michael, Joey, and everyone who could share in the event with us.
Another reason for the languishing post count is that we just haven’t been to much lately. We did rock out with some very fun Aussies during the AFL (Australian Football League) Grand Final at the excellent Varsity (expect a post about this one soon). But, that’s really it.
Last weekend was pretty jam packed with shows, but, sadly, we were too busy getting married to attend! That’s right, L and I were legally married on October 7th, exactly one year since of her fateful trip to visit an old college friend who would become so much more. For photos of the event, please visit Ben (aka Toasterlizard)’s Flickr gallery of the event. We’ll be doing the larger family and friends ceremony a year from now back in Oregon.
Well, with all of that epic news out of the way, I’ll simply close this post out with the only show I know of for this weekend: A free show featuring Big Island punk band Old Habits Die Hard and local awesomeness campfire and Discord & Rye.Show starts at 9pm (ish) on Friday at the ever wonderful Anna’s.
