almost better than the real thing
Disturbingly rare are the chances the Mrs and I have to go out and hear live music. However, when the opportunity to see an awesome cover band called Yacht Rock play the entire Thriller and Purple Rain albums at a small venue on a Saturday night presented itself, I had to buy tickets to nostalgia.

All in all, a GREAT way to spend the last Saturday night we’re in the same city for the next several weeks! An activity I highly recommend.
