Spontaneous Music

August 4th, 2010

Sarah forwarded me an e-mail yesterday at 9:00 AM from a co-worker offering free tickets to Lilith Fair last night.  “Sure, why not?” I thought and responded.  So, we made plans to leave work early to go.  It was a good show.  And, in keeping with our vow to never repeat “the Shakira mistake” (she played a free concert in Mexico City’s Zócalo, which our hotel faced, later in the same day we returned to the U.S.) we stayed until the end and were rewarded with an encore of all the artists performing the Patti Smith and Bruce Springsteen classic “Because the Night.”
