Spring Break!

The Wonder — d-ashes on March 5, 2008 at 1:57 pm

In that ever futile yet always waged battle against lost youth, I begin my 36 hours of Spring Break. As with last year’s mini-Spring Break to see Yo La Tengo at Tipitina’s, this year finds me on a trip to NOLA back to Tips, this time to see Wilco on the second night of their two night stand there. Maddie Potter and I are going to get down there early enough to wander up and down Magazine Street for a bit and hopefully the weather will be warm enough to enjoy a few pints on the balcony of The Balcony, just as I did the evening of the Wilco show at the State Palace Theater back in 2005 (that was the last live show I saw in NOLA before Katrina). After a night’s stay at the Prytania Park Hotel we’re hoping for a lazy lunch and meander up River Road back to Baton Rouge. SPRING BREAK!!!

The show is being streamed live from the Wilco website if you want to give a listen.


  1. As you stroll down Magazine, stop in at Belladonna and find my sister and give her a hug for me. Then wander to the Rendezvous instead of the Balcony. And have fun. Woohoo!

  2. Hey, Dave. Long time no see/hear. Just stumbled across your profile by following a list of ‘saps people I knew on myspace. I still don’t have a myspace page, but I keep getting links so maybe I should break down and get one…

    How long have you been in Baton Rouge and what do you do here? I’ve been living in BR for a few years now. I’m in my final year of law school at LSU, so I’ve been living in a cave for a good portion of that time. I’m not sure what exactly I’ll wind up doing with a law degree, but I guess I’ll figure something out.

    Drop me an e-mail and we can go grab a beer or whatever.

  3. I should have gone to Rendezvous or the Bulldog, Natalia. If it’s too cold to sit on the balcony of The Balcony it’s not worth sitting at The Balcony. Though I did watch a portion of Terminator 2 for the first time in 10 years.

    And email heading your way, Joey, thanks for wandering by.
