Hey now! Itâ€™s me, the Musical Tourist Elf! My good friend the Indie Rock Elf reminded me that the KEXP Yule Benefit is coming up soon, which sounded like another great excuse to hit the road to do what I love the most: touring the worldâ€™s finest music spots! So I hit the southern road for Seattle and arrived a smidge early to take in the sights and sounds.
This is me with some new favorite aural delights found at a local CDmonger:
Hereâ€™s me with some sort of great Seattle music legend:
And this is me with one of my favorite 60’s songwriters, John Lenin:
He looks a liâ€™l different from all the pictures Iâ€™ve seen, but maybe this is him in his later years. I sure like his beard. It reminds me of the big man.
Anyway, now I’m really excited for the show. I’ll be waiting here at the Showbox — I’m already first in line. Look for me. And don’t forget to pick up your tickets soon! I’ll save a spot for you.
