I saw Amanda Palmer (of the dresden dolls) doing a rather unrehearsed but great performance with lots of other people – among them the adorable regina spektor (who is amazing because she has spektris on her site, yes I was once addicted to tetris – not the sole reason for her amazingness by all means) – last tuesday at the new bongo club (shh… I didn’t really go there, actually i9t wasn’t as bad as I expected just not the same as the old one)

and yesterday…
we saw the pixies!!!

anyways I leave you to contemplate how great that was more details on all of this tomorrow when I’m bored at work rather than sleepy and in need of bed
