So that’s week four of the Introduction to Ashtanga and I’m loving it. Don’t get me wrong, I still love the vinyasa flow class that I’ve been going to regularly, but this is giving me some structure that I can use when I practice on my own.
On Monday night I went to see Warrior Soul at Audio in Glasgow. I’ve seen them twice before, once waaaay back just prior to their debut album coming out, when they supported Metallica. I remember thinking back then that they blew Metallica off the stage, and Monday night just reinforced that. They were outstanding.
That was a pretty good weekend. Managed to pack in a fair bit.
Friday after work was a leaving do for a colleague, he’s emigrating to Australia, but taking a few months to traipse round SE Asia before he gets there. From engineering tech to superstar dj. Bit of a career change, and good on him.
Saturday started with the usual guitar lesson, before heading to Paisley for the food festival which took place outside the beer festival in the town hall. Later, Karen went to see a friend, and I went to see Dan Reed playing in Ivory Blacks. Once again another great night.
Yesterday, we caught up with some friends for a late lunch and a drink, and ended up losing track of time. Later, back at the house, we ended up vegging in front of the tv watching Filth.
All in all a pretty good weekend.
Last night went to see Toto at the Concert Hall in Glasgow. Now while I’ve heard and liked the odd song over the years, they’ve always seemed a little rock-lite for my tastes, but my wife is a fan, and I knew she’d love seeing them live, so off we went.
Well, they may come across “rock-lite” on album, but they were totally blistering live. I knew Steve Lukather was a good guitarist, but last night I discovered he’s actually an awesome guitarist. It was a brilliant show. Over two hours of classic rock, and of course, they had to finish with Africa 😀
I was pretty stunned to hear from the stage that this was the first time they’d ever been to Glasgow!
Anyway, I think last night turned me from casual appreciator to fully fledged fan. Now, I’m nipping out to buy the new album (XIV) catch you all later.
