This past weekend El Hombre and I decided to have an impromptu date at this little wine bar in Wynwood. We rarely go out to bars anymore – it’s not really our scene. But every so often it’s fun to get dressed up and go out for a glass of wine and people watch.
So we found this funky little place where you can pick a bottle or get a few glasses of wine, pull up a chair and hang with your friends. And as we got there, a two-person band set up and started jamming out on a banjo, drums and box guitar and they were awesome. As we were chilling out and talking, a familiar start to a song came up. I asked El Hombre if he recognized it because it sounded like the 90s band Morphine. Soon enough I discovered it was and proceeded to sing every word of the songs. And then I came to a realization. This is a year that I want to see as much live music as possible. And good music with bands that play real instruments.
There’s nothing like the excitement of seeing a really great live band. I mean, it’s impossible to not have fun. So now I am on a mission to convince El Hombre that we need to go to Jazzfest.
