I started off the week with Girl Talk in Madison – it was OK but hosting the show at the Alliant Energy Center was a mistake – and tonight, I’m headed to First Avenue in Minneapolis to see Crystal Castles. I’m excited for the show because a) Teengirl Fantasy is opening b) I’ve never seen either band live and c) I’m going with two of my best friends, Signe and Jessica. Although it is weird to be away from Madison now that the protests have started to get lively again, I’m glad to be home and to have some time to share with my family and friends.

On tap for the rest of the weekend:

  1. Les Miserables (my brother’s girlfriend is in the performance)
  2. The King’s Speech (finally!)
  3. Starting The Wire
  4. Applying for jobs
