*cough, cough* *sneeze, sneeze* i'm taking cold eeze this stuff really works!
i woke up with a sore throat yesterday but felt good enough to go out to the largo and see Jill Sobule! Amazing is one word to describe her. Her songs were like little stories which reminded me of how i feel when i listen to Leonard Cohen except some of hers are a little more upbeat and very cute!! i'm just trying to say that they make you feel and think. she makes me happy! Goldenboy opened the show. he's from diamond bar. singer songwriter type, very good singer and plays a very beautiful, Red Gretsch guitar! I'm not in the mood to write up a long review so i'll just say this, Jill sang this song which stood out called lucy at the gym. i actually got choked up by it. Jill used to sneak into this gym every once in awhile just for their breakfast bar ---it was about this girl she kept seeing at the gym, very anorexic looking, always on the stairs. until one day she didn't see her there anymore, so she made up this story in her head to make herself feel better instead of sad and wrote this cool song about it. Jill is a very clever songwriter. *sneeze* ok, must stop now.
