I forgot to finish this post the other day: Just to add to the “action-packed” day that was Tuesday, we went to see the band Millish, which was having a “CD Party” kind of performance at The Ark in Ann Arbor. We went because one of the guys in the band, Tyler Duncan, is the son of a person we work with in the English department, but believe me, it wasn’t some kind of “favor” to a friend. These guys are really REALLY good.
They’re kind of a cross between Irish-folk, jazz, and whatever space there is between these two things. Click on the “listen” link on the Millish page and you’ll get an idea. I was too pooped after the show (recall my previous day’s golf marathon– sympathetic yet, Bill?) to wait in line to buy a CD, but I am hoping to talk to my colleague and make a special order. And they got bumperstickers, too.
