What Are You Listening To This Weekend?

The greatest of the work days, Friday, is upon us which means it is time to ask: what are you listening to this weekend?

We here at the Aria Serious tower have been busy converting our vinyl collection to MP3 so will send some of the weekend delving into the Warp Records 10+3 Remix Boxset (nothing to do with opera, but man can't live on opera alone). We're also going to listen to a recording of Jens Lekman live @ The Loft that we recorded last week. (Great venue by the way, for those in San Diego). Opera wise we're going to spend time with Dido and Aenas by Purcell. Is it shameful to admit we've heard this opera yet?

What are your listening to this weekend? Share it in the comment section below and make it a good one!

Oddly enough, this weekend I was going to listen to something quite different--Brent Spiner's CD, "Dreamland"--but I got sidetracked and didn't get the chance..will do so today. Am new to site..last opera listened to was the "Orfeo" with Stephanie Blythe from the Met on the tv...when can Ian get her here?? Oh, have not heard the Dido and Aenas...why the shame???

Brent Spiner!? Same guy who was Data on Star Trek: TNG. Never knew he sang. The things you learn on the internet...
