k.d. lang

Saw k.d. lang last night at the Cape Cod Melody Tent. What a great place to see a show! It's a revolving Theatre in the Round stage and quite intimate. It's only an hour from Boston if you drive quickly. Just kidding. Not really. Her voice is the best and her show was great!

Darlene Love

Great beach read if you like reading about the music industry, particularly 60s pop and soul. In Darlene Love's book My Name Is Love, her candor is so refreshing, I like her even more. Plus, juicy rock and roll tidbits, but not gross tidbits. Check out some of the characters:
The BlossomsShindig!The Righteous BrothersPhil Spector,
Sonny and CherTom JonesNino TempoThe Four TopsThe TemptationsAretha Franklin, Dionne Warwick, Steven Van Zandt and Ike and Tina Turner
