what do cake, devo, bassnectar and smashing pumkins have in common?

they played at a festival in louisville ky yesterday and i went......straight. lol.

my youngest son (17) won some tickets and we headed up there yesterday for an outdoor festival.

i just finished 10 months but i'll not lie....the triggers were there. beautiful hot day...great music and BEER everywhere...lol.

but you know what??? after the first 5 minutes i just started enjoying the music. it's the first time in many years that i attended music and can remember how good the bands actually were.

it finished around 12:40 louisville time and guess what??? i drove home. i wasn't passed out in the passenger seat making my son drive.

god, it feels good to be sober. i was amused by some of the drunks. nothing out of control. during bassnectar there was some kid drunk as hell behind me humping me like a dog humping a stuffed animal. he finally apologized for being up in my sh!t....i just laughed.

had we been at a piano recital for someone i might have had beef...when you're 5 rows back for bassnectar it comes with the territory.

i know it's hard to go to places where triggers are but you can still enjoy the hell out of something without being lit up.

love always,

Wow, Devo is still around? Reminds me of my college days, I have their debut album somewhere in my basement.
