We're Back, Baby!

S-townwife and I had our first date in a couple of years. We nabbed a babysitter, paid her well and we went out to Soundstown to hear Willie Nelson and Bob Dylan.

We got the best and the closest seats we possibly could without actually having to stand in the infield at the stage: 1st row behind the 1st base dugout, on the right field end. We could see over the heads of the people in the infield and put our feet up on the dugout. We got those seats because we were able to enter 30 minutes before hundreds of others--who had arrived much earlier that we did--thanks to our Sounds season tix.

Impressions: "Crazy" is about the most perfect Country [and Western] song ever written, although my personal favorite is "Blue Eyes Crying in the Rain," because love actually is like a dying ember. Dylan's set described in 6 words or less: "Texas blues infused steel guitar rock." At one point, I could have sworn I heard Anson Funderburgh and the Rockets instead of Dylan.

We had a great time, but it was also good to come back to a tranquil home.

  1. I saw them
    in Chattanooga on June 1st. It was a great show. Of course it rained the whole time we were there, but it didn't matter. It was totally worth it.
