Fantastic Concert [Mar. 23rd, 2008|01:18 am]

I saw Angelique Kidjo in concert tonight (her website is http://www.kidjo.com) at the Somerville Theater and it was wonderful!

Never have I been so thoroughly worn out by a performer. She so small! But she explodes with energy and enthusiasm - it's amazing. I'd only heard a couple of her songs before (one, "Battu," used to get a LOT of play on "The Playground," a WERS program made up of kids' music on Saturdays and Sundays - you can find it on Putumayo's African Playground collection; the other was on another Putumayo collection) but boy am I glad I decided to go.

Special thanks to miss_chance for making me aware of the concert and picking up the tickets.

And thank you to the germ (or virus) who decided to calm down and fade off after I slept through Friday and most of Saturday. Please continue to let me feel better cuz I don't have time to be sick right now.

Isn't she fantastic? The first time I saw her I was amazed - the music, her warm, upbeat energy, just everything. I am so glad you got to see her!

Hiya. Glad you got to enjoy the concert. Sorry we missed you at the store on Friday (Tony said you were home sick).

I'm so sorry I missed you and the family! I should send out an all-points bulletin when I don't make it into the Picnic, but I was way too out of it.

I hope Isaac wasn't too disappointed (unless of course ya'll got him his book reward).

How dare you be out sick? Just kidding! I had forgotten that you weren't feeling well so it hadn't occurred to me to phone and check that you were in. Alas :-) The Boy got one book (instead of two) since you weren't around, I guess we'll have to come back soon. Isaac brought "Peter and the Starcatchers" for you but he didn't want to leave it behind the counter so he'll bring it along next time. I also have some women's studies books for you from my mom. This is starting to sound complicated, perhaps we should plan a non-store rendezvous...

Hope you're continuing to feel better.
