I have a few superpowers. One worth noting is that I am able to fall asleep within seconds of my head hitting the pillow. Another is that I will inevitably pick the longest, slowest line at the supermarket. (Okay, so that’s sort of an anti-superpower)
But one of my favorite superpowers is that I have a knack for meeting (and often befriending) some of the most talented singer/songwriters around… The Weepies, Jonatha Brooke, Ben Harper, Martine Locke. You might remember a few weeks ago, I met a very charming man at the taqueria and he told me about his daughter Rachel Garlin.
Well now I’m a new fan! and she invited me to a show she was doing with Catie Curtis this weekend in Berkeley. I didn’t know Catie Curtis’ music until now and I can’t believe I was in the dark for so long. She is amazing. You can give a listen on her myspace page and also see her list of upcoming shows.
Also, Jonatha is currently touring and I wish I could follow her around the country and go to each and every show. I will definitely be at her gig at Slim’s in San Francisco on my birthday, November 9th.
What are your superpowers? Are you able to tell something is wrong with a friend simply by the way they answer the phone? Are you the calm in the storm? Tell me about your superpowers…
