Cathy and I are headed to NYC this weekend. I've never been there, if you can believe that, so I'm incredibly terribly really excited. I mean, really excited.
The main reason for the trip is to catch the rock show of the decade: Arcade Fire, LCD Soundsystem, Arcade Fire, and Blonde Redhead. We've been scouting the opportunity to catch AF and LCD on tour together, and had just about bought tickets to Denver to see them at Red Rocks when we found out that Les Savy Fav and Blonde Redhead were joining the bill on Randall Island in New York.
Cathy got in touch with our wonderful friend Heidi who is gracious enough to put us up, and the deal was done.
We'll catch music and eat our way across the city.
I hope to take plenty of photos and do some writing over on the travel blog, if you care to check in there. Also, if you have interest, Cathy will soon be putting together some words and pictures from her recent trip to Burma over on that blog.
Check it out.
