something for everyone this weekend

this seems to be an unusually good weekend for going out (including a host of promising local music options) but sometimes you just aren’t in the mood to do the bar/club thing. in case anyone is looking for something different this weekend, here are two options to consider:

tonight and tomorrow night Colin Quinn is performing at the DC Improv. i have to admit, though i’m sure i’ll get flack for this, that i think Colin Quinn was the best SNL “Weekend Update” host in my memory. the man is just naturally funny, plus i just think there is something really sexy about him. so if you are in the mood for some funny tonight, check him out and decide for yourself.

if you are in the mood for something more highbrow, tonight at 8 pm in adams morgan the American Composers Forum presents an “informal concert” featuring visiting composer Robert Carl, including pieces for piano, voice, shakuhachi (japanese bamboo flute) and computer. a duet for japanese bamboo flute and computer, that sounds pretty intriguing, doesn’t it? and it’s a bargain for only $10 at the The Patricia M. Sitar Center for the Arts. i think this would make a perfect first date: show your date how cultured and urbane you are by taking him or her to this concert, and then after the show maybe stop by ghana cafe for some food, drinks, and dancing.

TGIF folks!

    I heard CQ on the radio yesterday morning w/ Elliot in the Morning. Man, that was a lame promo…neither of them cared, at all, about doing it.

    i don’t know what elliott’s problem was, but if i were colin quinn i probably wouldn’t be too thrilled about doing an “elliott in the morning” promo either.

    on mix 107.3 this morning colin was joking about being a corporate tool, and how he wrote a script for some movie called “celtic pride” or something that ended up so mutilated by the “suits” that not one word he originally wrote remained in the script by the time it was filmed. he said he didn’t bother to see the movie, but he took their money. what are you going to do? so yeah, i’m not surprised that promos like that aren’t his favorite thing.

    that reminds me of Lost this week… that crazy diaper advertisement that “driveshaft” was doing? anyone watch Lost? very sad, but oh so funny.
