Ending on a good note

Last Saturday day was thankfully pretty uneventful. I know, here it is, Friday and I'm still going on about last weekend! Well, it was such a ride, up and down, I feel like I have to share it with you!

Saturday night came around, and we had tickets to see the Smithereens at the Coach House in San Juan Capistrano. Do you remember the Smithereens? They were a pretty prominent band in the eighties. I had to go to youtube to jog my memory too, so don't feel bad.

Anyways, they were so damn good! Pat DeNizio, the lead singer, has such a rich tone to his voice, with his incredible vibrato, and his obvious love for the music and the fans made for an incredible show! His voice reminds me a little of Elvis Costello, they both have that beautiful thick timbre to their voices. Ok, so that's enough of a treat, right? But their showmanship, and the performance they gave were really great, and they were super tight musically, too! If you see them on the bill of your local venue, be sure to check them out. I promise, you won't be disappointed!


  1. I know they did some songs that I love, but I can't think of them...going to have to google!

    I think you deserved a fun night out after Friday's horror show! Glad you had fun!

  2. I know what you mean, I had to do the same. I can't figure out why they were forgotten. They've been touring all these years, and they really are a blast to see in concert!

    Ha, it was good that no drama followed me to the show!
