Today is exciting for many reasons, but most of all because the Computer Vs. Jeopardy! Champs episodes begin tonight. Of course, I'm going to miss today's show because I'll be heading down to the Rudyard Kipling in an effort to not spend the evening in front of an electronic device and rather in front of live people playing live music.
That's not a judgment; it's more of a reminder to myself that I should go out more. Staying at home with a book or Jeopardy has become far too common this past year, and it's made me forget just how inspiring and important it is to hear live music. Sad, I know, but it's been a really rough winter.
Still, I'm pretty excited about seeing the computer versus Ken Jennings.
Hope to see you at the Rudyard Kipling tonight. I'm playing accordion on a couple of songs with The Coal Porters, but mostly just hanging out for once.
Also, I'll be on State of Affairs on www.WFPL.org today from 1:00-2:00ET. You can stream it live. It's a talk show, and today's topic is: Best Breakup Songs. What's your favorite?
