But here we are, suddenly, so it is time to ask: what are you listening to this weekend?
We here at the Aria Serious tower are recovering from the Pixies concert in Los Angeles last night, ashamed to admit we're getting far too old to rock out on a Thursday night with any hope of recovering by Wednesday of the following week.
And my ears hurt.
While we're hitting up Amoeba Records this morning in the hopes of finding some gems both operatic and not operatic, we're going to spend the nice train ride back down to San Diego (yes, a train - I know, I've never ridden one either) with Anja Harteros's new cd of lieder songs called Von Ewiger Liebe. Anja joins us in January for La boheme.
Then we'll probably move onto a nice selection of Tom Waits songs since Mr. Waits and trains seem to go together and besides, he has a new album coming out later this month.
So what are your listening plans this weekend? Share them in the comment section below.
Make it a good one!
