that’s a general rule for me, actually. more specific and more recent, though: i was invited to a concert last sunday with a couple of friends to check out an “amazing” singer at the groovy Schuba’s Tavern here in Chi-town. amazing doesn’t begin to describe it. said singer goes by the name Lindi Ortega, and she is unbelievable! great energy, beautiful music, and a killer voice- think Johnny Cash-meets-Patsy Cline-with a-Dolly Parton twang. seriously.
the best part- the adorable Lindi loves to sport cutesy feathered headpieces and such (thanks to my friend for letting me know that before the show), and i brought a little something to give to her! got the chance to say hi as she headed off the stage at the end of the show, and gave her one of my fave little feathered headpieces.
