Best Friends in B-town03.06.2011
As previously mentioned, last weekend was mid-term break and I actually got to relax a little. After spending all of Thursday (literally) writing my Classic American Film paper, I was super excited to go down to Indiana University in Bloomington on Friday to visit my best friend Lindsay. WeÂve been friends since 8th grade, so itÂs always great to see her, but we donÂt get to very often. Hence the reason I jumped at the chance to see her perform (sheÂs a musician, but sheÂd never introduce herself that wayÂ sheÂs too modest) and to just hang out with her for a while.
I headed down to Bloomington around 2:30 on Friday afternoon and arrived around 3:30. By 4:30, Lindsay, her boyfriend Tony, and I had left LindsayÂs apartment to set up at BuffalouieÂs (a wings restaurant) for LindsayÂs show. She played a 45-minute set as part of a benefit concert with the proceeds going to an elementary in the area. Tony actually accompanied her on a couple and IÂve included their performance of Jason MrazÂs ÂLuckyÂ at the end of this blog, so check them out! Also, check out LindsayÂs Youtube channelÂ just search Lindsay Smith and you should find her. SheÂs really talented and writes her own stuff as well as covers some great existing songs. Think IÂm just saying that because weÂre friends? Check out her stuff and decide for yourself.
After the show we at dinner at Mother BearÂs pizza and saw Tony perform in the Improv comedy show at IU. And finally we spent some time with old friends. I was sad I had to leave on Saturday, but it was great to see Lindsay, Tony, LindsayÂs family, and some old friends.
And, seriously, take a listen to Lindsay. SheÂs splendid. And Tony is pretty good too.
