Came into Friday and Saturday nights hot; special cakes and NOLA -- a great combination.  Hung with Dave (night two) and Stephanie (night one).

But, came in scalding Sunday: L-spot, and the show was a rager.  Perfect night: cool, windy, pleasant, gentle.  Walked back to the apt in the warehouse district apres show.  Jasmine in full resplendence on fence around apartment.

If this WERE a baseball game, I'd like to think the home team - those of you who were at the show - won. Super fun from start to finish.
See some of you tonight for Night Three of this series. Thanks as always to our amazing hosts, the staff and crew at Joy and of course to all of you for your constant support!
