My Calendar Highlights: January 23

Coming off of this past weekend, I am still finishing up sorting the photos from the 5 bands and 2 stand-up comedy shows I saw/heard/photographed. I’m still agonizing over which shows to see this coming weekend, though I think I’ve already settled on the winning combination. Don’t you love it when several great shows line up at the same times, leaving whole weeks’-worth of days empty in between? At least one of the shows on my calendar for next week is on a Thursday, which means it won’t conflict with EVERYTHING, but of course there are two conflicting shows simultaneously that night as well.

And, to close out, here’s a video clip from a show I would have been at recently, had I been in Derry, NI. I’ve heard before that performing is a lot like taking tests, in that you give a better performance if you are nervous enough to put a little extra time and effort into preparing for it. In any case, Damian McGinty gave a fantastic performance at the Derry Sons and Daughters concert.
