A Not-So-Hot Weekend of Music!

Bonjour, bon ami!!!

It feels like FOREVER since I’ve updated my little space of the world wide web here, because it has been a LONG time!!  I just thought I would pop in with a small update and give you a preview of what will be coming after this weekend!!

If you’re an independent/house/rock/hip-hop/folk music fan, then you are probably aware that this year’s music festival season kicked off a few weeks ago with SXSW in Austin.  This weekend is the first of two Coachella Music Festival weekends, and like every previous year that I’ve been fortunate enough to attend, I’m packing up my bags and preparing for a fun-with-a-lot-less-sun-filled weekend of music, weirdos and all around craziness!!!!

Fortunately (or UNfortunately) the weather forecast  is extremely undesert-like (hence my more thoughtful packing job).

Here’s a quick visual preview of the plethora of musical madness featured this year at the normally quiet Indio, CA polo field:

One of my ALL-TIME FAVORITE bands, Radiohead… if I could express the excitement through the screen right now, it would look something like this:

Other bands I’m super-duper-excited to see and hear:

Yes, the legends all on one stage – it’s going to be memorable, needless to say!

And then we round it all out with some good ol’ grimy rock.

Thanksgiving In Pictures

After a day of preparing, scheduling, cleaning, cooking, improvised crafting, eating, laughing, watching football, and cocktailing… I can say I am truly thankful for all of the many blessings in my life.  My family and friends, my better half, my furry children, my good health and faculties, my La Belle Hibou readers… so much for me to be grateful!  Today reminded me to be humble and to appreciate.

Wishing you all a wonderful holiday weekend!

Merci, beaucoup!!
