Hawser and the Hilton

Last night I attended a party for Talk Like a Pirate Day, in Milwaukee. I’ll post more about the actual party in a future post. Some of the most memorable moments of the evening happened while I was at the Hotel waiting to be picked up to go to the party, and after I was dropped off after the party. I would like to offer a disclaimer on the post-party behavior, I had been drinking some and was certainly not 100% child friendly, not that the situation really warranted it at ~2:15 a.m.

Seelie Court Show

Yesterday I attended the Salem, WI library’s Frodo fest. Actually really, to be truthful, I attended the Seelie Court shows at the Frodo Fest, as I really didn’t wander around much at all. I originally left my house at just around 12:00, which should have put me there right as they were going for their first set. I next left my house at about 12:05, followed by leaving again at 12:10, and a final leaving at 12:!5… Yes I am THAT scaterbrained… This is why I usually, even for a single overnight trip like last night, pack 3 or 4 days in advance. This was not the case, and the repeated trips to the house once again solidified in my mind that I need to do so.
When I did eventually get to the festival, Seelie Court was just finishing up their first set. Between sets I had a chance to visit with everyone in the band, and all of the regular fans in attendance, including , , , , and her husband, and and his wife.
The sets were a lot of fun, and it was so good to have them back. There are a few songs that were requested that they have not yet gotten back down, but I suspect that won’t take them long with their talent.

I ended up leaving before their last set, which for me is a really odd situation, but I had other plans for the rest of the night, and needed to get to my hotel and change into Hawser. More on that in another post.
