My girlfriend is a rock star!


Had the best time last nite.

Gia sang onstage as part of the ensemble rock gig, The Paper Bag. Kinda hard to describe what it is, so if you are interested just click on the link. But I will do my best to give it justice.

The Paper Bag has been going on for 30 years now. It is an old-fashioned rock show that includes a rotating mix of over 60 local musicians. Some are professionals, some are amateurs, but they all can bring it come showtime. They set a play-list based on that year's theme and they pack out whatever room they are playing in with fans of the gig.

It was tremendous fun, and very tiring. They didn't get going until 10PM and they were still cranking when we left at 3:30ish AM. Their motto is "we strongly urge you to take the next day off", which is exactly what we did. We slept until well after Noon today. Nice!

Gia sang and looked fantastic! I'm so proud of her. She rocks!
