opeth adventure

Me & Opeth 2013-05-04

Just back from an amazing trip to Athens, GA to see Rodg's most favorite metal band, Opeth! And the icing on the cake is that he bought us VIP tickets, so we got to meet the band. It was pretty awesome! I watched the show from the perfect perch up in the balcony at the Georgia Theatre, while Rodg relived his twenties just feet from the stage.

(Yep, you might recognize the CD Mikael Akerfeldt is holding...)

To break up the drive there we went to Chattanooga on Friday and had the most delicious dinner at St. John's Meeting Place! I can't recommend it highly enough, especially the Vegan Goods!

By this time next week we will have seen Opeth again, have helped host Mary Halvorson and Stephan Crump who perform at Indeterminacies at Zeitgeist Gallery, and (fingers crossed) seen Matthew Shipp at the local VFW. And just wait until you see what's planned for the next weekend! Truly my cup is currently as full as the crates at Wuxtry Records... But it is equally as all-good!
