The NTent and Third Gear in Chippewa Falls.

Wow, but this was a busy Saturday night in Chippewa Falls.  There was Jeff White playing country music at The James Sheeley House.  --Never made it there.  There was The NTent playing at the T&C Roundabout.  There was JFT Party Band playing down at Sweeneys.  There was Blue Room and Scrimbo at Every Buddys, and finally Third Gear at The Snout Saloon.  The bands and venues out numbered Eau Claire this fine evening.  I was just happy to catch as much of it as I could.

Lucas Fischer at The West Hill Bar

The Wife and I were sitting around after a wonderful supper.   A nuclear chicken curry over an even mix of Thai jasmine rice, japanese brown and a really fantastic nine grain rice.   The kids were rounding themselves up for bedtime.  Winding down from supper, letting some of the steam from the curry out their ears.  I mentioned to The Wife I was giving thought to heading out to a show.  I saw the posting on Facebook for Lucas Fischer playing at the West Hill Bar.  It didn't take much convincing and she was joining me. 

Iggy Rae Vicious at Snout Saloon

Life is busy and there is never enough time for writing.  This hobby, if you can call it that, is low on the priority list of things that have to get done in our family.  I enjoy it, but other things often have to come first.  That doesn't mean they aren't important.  And the acts I see when I am otherwise involved are not bad.  I just don't have time to comment.  That is the way it was when I saw Iggy Rae Vicious and his band Rat Sass a few weeks ago.  Iggy has been here to the Snout Saloon in Chippewa Falls twice this last year.

Rachel Hanson at James Sheeley House.

The Wife is working a paying gig right now, and everyone knows it is a lazy man who doesn't find his wife at least two jobs.  She was behind the keyboard and so deeply involved in hooking all the intertubes together that I was able to slip out for an hour.   So I made my way down to the James Sheeley to catch a Stevens Point indie/folk musician Rachel Hanson
