You should always stick around after concerts.

So this weekend I didn't feel like going to Palmyra for the pageant with everyone else. Instead I decided to head over to Coney Island for the Village Voice Siren Music Festival. The Subway ride over to the east side of Brooklyn is a long one, but it was worth it. I got off the train to hear the distant sound of Mates of State, a band Jessica and Christina have both helped me get into.

This here is a picture of me with the keyboardist Kori. She's funny.

After the show I walked around the beach and meditated for a bit. There was a heavy mist and a strange glow that night. You can kind of see it in the picture. It was a good time to sit and think and make phone calls.

After the show I picked up the recording they made of the Ben Folds in-store concert I went to in April. On a whim I also picked up the new Bebel Gilberto remix CD. I figured I needed some more Brazilian Bossa Nova in my life. Later my friend Emmanuel picked me up and saved me from having to wait an hour to take the bus. I love having friends in the city. I really do.
