banjos and books

This weekend (not counting Friday) was an amazing weekend. Saturday I went to School of Rock in South Hackensack to see the Higher

Seth of the Higher

and Sherwood together for the second time. The Higher was ten times better than when I saw them in July. They choose most of my favorite songs and also covered Low by FloRida and Bye Bye Bye by NSYNC. Then , to make the evening better, I found out while I was there that I’m getting a puppy! He's a Wheaton terrier and we're going to name him Bailey. I'm very excited.
Sunday, I went to Bowery Ballroom in the city to see Lauren’s cousins band The Postelles. Surpris
ingly, they were very good. We stayed to see another really good band, Illinois (picture below). And yeah, he really plays the banjo.

Unfortunately, now it's Monday and time for another week of school, which means another blog.

The next book I decided to read is Like Water for Chocolate by Laura Esquivel. This will be the second book I’m reading, and it is also the second book I’m reading by a Latin-American female. So, I thought I’d do research a little more about Latin-American literature that might help my understanding of In the Time of the Butterflies and Like Water for Chocolate. That blog will come later this week.
