Well, my sisters-in-law have me hooked on dumpster diving!

We had a great haul this evening, and I've been busy sorting through my new inserts and preparing for the last few days of Randall's Living Well (LW) promo.

Fun on Fourth Street

What a great night! Karl and I just returned from a live performance by Diane Birch compliments of the One to One Network.

We left a teary-eyed Henry and sleeping Clare with Rebecca the sitter, and headed off to Austin's La Zona Rosa.

Right away we were both very impressed by Diane's ability to sing while playing the piano. We know first hand how difficult it is to play and sing simultaneously--and she did it with flare! Her band had a bluesy-gospel feel comprised of drums, guitar, brass and Diane on piano and lead vocals. She shared music from her debut album Bible Belt.

I really appreciated that I could pick out her lyrics even the first time hearing a song, and that her tunes were memorable. In fact, I visited her MySpace page last night to get an feel for her music. With just that one cycle through--Diane's songs were already familiar at tonight's concert.

Another mark of a good musician--her cover of Haddaway's "What is love" was unique to her style, yet retained enough of the original that I was still able to sing along and didn't cringe that it wasn't the same.

Diane bid us all adieu and gave up the stage to James Morrison, but promised she would return soon for more Texas hospitality and Austin brisket!
