Headed to Florida on the Weekend!

Early Saturday morning, March 4, i'll be flying to Tallahassee, Florida for an overnight adventure. why Tallahasse and what adventure might be found there, you might ask? well.....

Black Rebel Motorcycle Club is scheduled to play at The Beta Bar in Tallahassee as they make their way across the country on their current tour. yup, B.R.M.C., the band i just saw in Philadelphia last weekend. i was ever so impressed with their Philly performance and haven't been able to stop listening to their albums and remembering how explosive is B.R.M.C. live that i just have to see them again while i can. i don't want to wait until their next tour. that might not be for another year or two and, after being thoroughly enchanted by their electrifying performance on 19 February that is too long for me to wait.

So, i found a pretty good airfare out of Harrisburg International Airport into Tallahassee Regional Airport, booked an inexpensive hotel near the club (also near Florida State University and Florida A&M University) and purchased a ticket to be picked up at the Will Call window at the club's box office. two opening bands are scheduled... 'New Roman Times' from Winter Park, Florida and 'Gettysburg' about which i cannot find any info but suspect are a local band. hopefully, they'll be good warm-up acts for B.R.M.C.
After an evening of live music and partying with a few hundred university students, i'll spend Sunday chilling and will catch the evening flight back to Pennsylvania. should be in my front door around 1am Monday which will leave me about 6 hours to grab some sleep before getting ready to report to the office for work.

sounds like a plan to me :)


  1. Sounds like a good plan, you really are hooked on this stuff aren't you?


  2. thanks, Prof.!

    hee, yeah, i'm hooked (or obsessive? lol). it's my answer to mid-life crisis... do that which makes me feel good and fuck the rest of the bullshit :p


  3. Obsessed is what I was thinking! Glad you enjoyed the concert. I'm sure you'll have a great time at this one too.

  4. oh well... there are much worse things about which to be obsessed. ya see, H.L., by obsessing with live music i get to fulfill both my passions simutaneously... travel & music. hehee, so long as my wallet allows, that is!

  5. I tried to register for the Prof's new site, but it didn't work. I put my e-mail address in, and I didn't get a reply with my password. Then, I tried again, but it said the e-mail address had already registered. How did you do it, Donna?

  6. did you check your 'junkmail' box for the registration mail with password, H.L.?

    gotta run..... the weekend trip for the B.R.M.C. gig was like a dream, but now i gotta get pumped up on coffee and race to the office. ugh, back to reality!
