Reggae, Refreshment and Rehearsals!

Hi everyone, I hope you had a good weekend and thanks for checking out the update.

Well on Friday night Matt and I went to see an awesome show, we saw the Berklee Bob Marley Ensemble and the Berklee Reggae/Dub Ensemble play at Bill's Bar which is across the street from Fenway park. They both tore the house down! A really nice thing about going to school here is that you get to see a lot of cool music because a lot of the student groups/ensembles are better than "professional" musicians that I've seen before.

Mario lives in the same building as Matt and I, he's the guy in the middle. He's from Jamaica and is a singer for the Reggae/Dub Ensemble!

On Saturday night we decided to go on a walk through Cambridge to check out a guitar store (I didn't buy anything... yet) We walked around and checked out the sights and walked around Harvard and Harvard Square a bit. (Hey Liz, you should go to Harvard!)

We stopped off at a cool burger place called Mr. Bartley's Burgers. They have apparently the best burgers in America and they had cool names like the Tom Brady and the Rudy Giuliani. (The specials aren't on the board in the picture, they're in the menu)

I had a Tom Brady and Matt had a Boston College. The place is really popular, we went on a Saturday and at about 1:30 there was a lineup of about 20 people outside the place just waiting to get a table. The burger was really good and they make their own sweet potato fries there. A weird thing about The States is that they ask you how you want you burger done. I decided to err on the side of caution and ordered mine well done. It was a really good meal and I think I'll have to go back there sometime (it was only like a 20-30 minute walk from my dorm anyway)

Sunday was the return of rehearsals for The Middle Eights. (Pic below is Matt on the way to rehearsal) We've been writing up a storm and we have a couple shows coming up in September here in Massachusetts including a spot at the Spencer Festival (Some kind of county fair) I figure it'll be fun to play some tunes, check out consignment tables and maybe partake in a pie eating contest or two? I hope I'm not really uninformed about the nature of this "fair". Anyways, take care everyone, happy (belated) Easter and keep your eyes peeled (just an expression, please!) for more updates!

What on earth is in a Tom Brady? Sounds like a Windex burger to me :S

A Tom Brady is a beef burger with guacamole, cheddar cheese, lettuce, tomato and red onion served with sweet potato fries!!
