I finished The Moor’s Account, which Rosario recommended. I liked it pretty well, mostly because the POV was novel.
At the library today, I picked up a copy of After by Anna Todd; it’s New Adult, which is not my favorite sub-genre, but the fact that its tag line is “wattpad sensation” caught my attention.
I’m so ready for hockey season to start tomorrow night. My first game is next week. And I’ve got tickets for an NWHL game 🙂
Saw Frank Turner and the Sleeping Souls at Rams Head Live on Saturday and the 9:30 Club on Sunday. Beans on Toast and Skinny Lister opened; I’d seen BoT before but never Skinny Lister. I think their sound suits FT better than the other second acts I’ve seen at his shows before, which struck as a little too metal to be consistent with the sounds of BoT and FT. And I was pretty entertained by the squeeze box/accordion player, who rocked out, and the upright bass player who crowdsurfed during one song. I liked the set list slightly better on Saturday (it included “Eulogy”, “Worse Things Happen at Sea”, and “One Foot Before the Other”) than Sunday but enjoyed both shows. The sound was better at the 9:30 Club; at Rams Head, the bass and drums made the lyrics a little hard to distinguish some times, at least I found it so up on the balcony rather than down on the floor. I love that there is a tour flag traveling to all the tour stops independent of the band; it goes via fans. The dude who brought it to DC was in front of me in the line to get into the show. [I’m looking at his other tour stops and thinking hard about road trips. But since he’s going west, it’s probably not going to happen; if he were going up or down the east coast, I’d be seriously tempted.]
