A Once In a Lifetime Opportunity...for You!
|Aren't they just precious?|
The good news is, right after they return to my loving arms next Friday, we have a fantastic event happening right at our front door...literally! Our hip neighborhood of Somerville, right on the outskirts of Boston and Cambridge, hosts a yearly Somerville Porchfest. For this roaming festival, regular ol' folks sit out on their porches and play music all day so that regular ol' folks can walk around the neighborhood and hear all sorts of amazing music. This year's Porchfest is next Saturday, May 17th.
This year, the roomies and I decided that we wanted in on the fun! The only barrier to that idea was that none of us are musically talented enough to play anything remotely close to being presentable to the public. (Although I do have to say that NJP really enjoys my rendition of Sweet Child of Mine on the guitar.) Praise the heavens, though, we quickly realized that we have friends who have bands and play music.
Musical friends + our front porch = killer Porchfest participation!
Walter and the Night Owls features Walter, Mas, (yes, the same Mas who posts here with me. She rocks!) Afton, and Kristy. We chatted with them recently and they have some pretty spectacular things planned so DO NOT miss this one. You can check out a map of the entire event here and a link to their website here. They will perform between 2 and 4.
So what was that once in a lifetime opportunity you ask? No, it is not to deliver me food while my roommates are away. (But really, you still can if you want to.) Next Saturday, May 17, you can Wake Up & Boogie (Saturday) with me! With a live band! At my house! For free! !!!!! (Are we excited yet!?!?!)
P.S. I've learned some stealthy internet stalking skills from a person who will go unnamed. However, it provided me with a particular set of skills and I was able to find this clip of Walter and Afton performing on some sort of TV show so you can get a glimpse of what is to come. Start the clip at 19:43 to just see Walter and Afton.
