A way to survive the empty nest and a "cracked "relationship with a fun daily challenge of new experiences, reflections, sources, and some biblical guidance. I hope this blog which offers a fun journey to survive by trying something new, either vicariously or by doing, will result in a survival tool kit to replace the past familiar doing, giving, and/or incorporating the interest of your child or your long gone love interest, with some new self interest(s).
I have to admit that at my age, it is quite unusual for me
to go anywhere other than my comfy chair on a Tuesday night but I wanted to hear my girlfriend’s son play. I believe that it is important to support others, especially bands in this difficult industry.
Nightly at Sprint club in Pittsburgh
I am not a music critic but I watch the television show “Voice” religiously and like wine, I just know a good one when I experience it. I would characterize Nightly's sound as Pop/Rock. Their music had a heavy guitar presence combined with that “pop sound” of a repeated chorus that
hooks you into singing it.
The song, Talk to Me, had the audience bouncing (that is what people much younger than I seem to do when enjoying a song). Their single, XO, about the ambivalence of a fading relationship, has a clapping, bounding, infectious beat with a catchy refrain, “Love you, but I
got to let go…XO”. My favorite song was No Vacancy with its fast steady heart beat like pulse throughout.
The venue, Spirit is located in Lawrenceville not far from some new trendy restaurants. They have an interesting line-up
of touring bands and local bands. It’s a smaller venue with great pizza!
I would definitely try this place again to experience new sounds. Nightly will also stay on my watch
list as a new alternative pop band. I can't wait to see what is next on their play list. (Nightly on tour)
