|We saw an amazingly good show from Fitz and the Tantrums tonight at the new venue, The Signal, in Chattanooga. Great sight lines and excellent acoustics make this place an easy choice to come back to whenever we can. We've seen these guys before and love them, but never from this close up. Their energy and positive vibes are quite enjoyable. The confetti storm during their closing number, "The Walker," was a hoot! They had a great opener also: a young band called Spirit Animal with a very unique sound and style. Before the show, we had a tasty dinner at the fairly new Edley's Bar-b-cue in North Chatt. We've actually never been to an Edley's before even though it started in Nashville and has three locations there.|

|Wednesday, June 6 - We went to see the Broadway musical, Waitress tonight at TPAC in downtown Nashville with Ashlee's mom, Evelyn. It was better than any of us thought it would be with great songs, hilarious comedy and a good story all around.|

Tuesday, June 12 - We attended the SOLD OUT show of Al Stewart at The City Winery in downtown Nashville tonight. Ashlee hadn't really ever heard of him, but was a good sport to go for my sake and enjoyed the show. Honestly, I only knew a few of his songs including his biggest hit "Year of the Cat" which came out way back in 1976. His show was very good, and at 72 years old, this living legend Scottish folk balladeer, is amazingly spry and sharp in voice and guitar playing dexterity. It was an acoustic show, but his accompaniment by an amazing musician named, Dave Nachmanoff , who played flute, harmonica, bongos and sax throughout the night. On his signature "Year of the Cat" song, the memorably cool piano part was played by his opener, Nashville native singer/songwriter, Jude Johstone, who is very talented despite her original songs as an opener that were a bit of downer. We had a tasty dinner as well during the show and this was our first time sitting in balcony seats which were nice and roomy with a great view of the stage.
|Saturday, June 23 - We went and checked out the hilarious Tag movie tonight at the Roxy Theaters here in Lebanon. We laughed our butts off as we kicked back in the recliner chairs to enjoy this amazingly true and funny story.|
|Thursday, June 28 - We saw the entertaining Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom tonight in the recliners at our local Roxy Theaters. A pretty good sequel if we do say so ourselves.|
