Cool For Cats, Not for Chris

So on our wedding anniversary last December 9th Jenni purchased for me Two tickets to the Chris Difford Show at the Music Mill
. Seeing the grandness of this gesture I invited Jenni to join me at the Mill last night, the night that the tickets were for. I even let her pay for dinner since I paid for lunch yesterday at the Pub, and because she just got paid. That way she could truly say she took me to dinner and a show from one of my favorite Brit singer songwriters, and half of the writing and vocalizing genius of the group Squeeze (1978-1994). The only thing Jenni didn't pay for last evening was the focus-all to use with the camera when she took my picture with the half squeezer himself. The above photo has been sharpened to ridiculous extents but falls short of sharp. I don't think I'll ever get the opportunity to reproduce the moment though, I doubt that Mr. Difford, or his co-writing counterpart (Glen Tilbrook) will venture back to Indianapolis Indiana when the group re-groups in a few short months for a tour and CD release. There were only 31 people in attendance for his show. Even less than when Travis, Liz and I went to see Lloyd Cole
at the Bluebird. Gran Bel Fisher
from Salina Ohio opened for Chris Difford and played for 40 minutes with an exceptional guitar player named Josh (?). Gran Bel has a song on the Gray's Anatomy Soundtrack CD, which he played last night too (the song, not the soundtrack). The dinner at the Music Mill was exceptional, a bit pricey, but how many anniversaries can you celebrate three months to the day later and still get the full extent of a great gift and shared experience?
