The Black Cab Sessions

Favorite Things: to see live music.....and to get turned on to new music. Well, I found my fix! The Black Cab Sessions are unbelievable peeks at incredible bands that can stand up to a performance in the back of a black cab. Playing acoustic and some playing toy pianos these bands prove that they are amazing artists that sound just as great raw. One of the coolest parts is they are driving around the streets of London and the camera pans out to the side walks. Witnessing the reactions of people on the streets and the scenery is fabulous. If you are in need of some new tunes in your arsenal well, this is a free ticket. Some of my personal favorites include Calexico, Death Cab for Cutie, Ryan Adams which are already on my ipod. Then the "new" bands I discovered are Our Broken Garden, Smoke Fairies and Charlie Siem. Another cool thing about the Black Cab Sessions is they give you some info about each performer. So, go.....check it out!

Thank you, dear Shannon - I really need some good music this weekend!!

Have to do my tax return declaration, sitting here and stuffing legs and arms and crocheting wigs.

Outside spring, sun, happy people, but my desk cannot wait...

So I will enjoy some happymakers as these melodies - and I send you a bright smile from Berlin!
