Hi friends,

So much going on these days I can hardly keep track — the weekend found me hosting a clothing swap, attending dinner parties, playing a show with a new-ish project opening for BabysitterJLK (who, btw, are 100% worth seeing live should you get the chance), and hanging with Canada M. Fox and Omar and Katie from CJLO at a very rad Chihuly exhibit at the MMFA.

I am also trying to get my shit together for a voyage that will take me overseas for the first time in my life (!) — I am heading to various parts of Europe to visit friends, see the sights, and get some much-needed solo travel time. I will be out of the office from August 2nd until August 18th, so there will be no charts or tracking during this time. Our awesome music department interns and volunteers will be holding down the fort while I’m gone. Please note that I will NOT be checking email during my vacation – for urgent matters, you can contact our music librarian Tim Beeler:
But hey! It’s the summer. You really don’t want to be staring at a computer screen that much, do you? Go outside instead!

Have a great few weeks, and catch y’all in late August.
