I haven't been blogging as much this past week as I've been tied up getting ready for my upcoming Rock Girl Rock-and-Roll nuptials.  Seeing as my fiancé is a musician and constantly on and off the road, we're doing a civil ceremony this week in our own rock style- on Friday the 13th down in New York City- and then having a bigger reception with family and friends later on in April.

As for Friday the 13th? We'll be going to City Hall and making it legal, followed by dinner at The Beetle House, a 'Tim Burton' inspired restaurant and bar.  Yes- the bar is decorated with the likes of sandworms and Beetlejuice.  There are quirky and morose photos lining the brick walls, clearly including skeleton-style images, and dark purple lighting setting the tone.  The cocktails and food are named fun things like 'Edward Burger Hands' and 'Eggs Skellington.'  For a horror movie fanatic like me, it's a dream come true.  When my fiancé had a day off on tour this Fall, he spent the day in my FAVORITE place ever- New Orleans- and  with the assistance of a great travel company 'Gas Lantern Experiences' he somehow found some rocking little skeleton voodoo bride and groom cake toppers.

As for the honeymoon, we'll be spending the weekend in the city and seeing Circa Survive for their ten year anniversary tour of 'On Letting Go.'  Circa Survive's singer Anthony Green (vocalist of Saosin as well) is one of my favorites with his tremendous vocal range, and I got to see him perform live with Saosin at the 'So What Music Fest' this past March.  Alumni Artists of the Capital District's own Equal Vision Records [along with Coheed and Cambria, Chiodos, Pierce the Veil], Circa Survive has long been one of my go-to favorites to listen to, and I can think of NO other way to celebrate getting legally hitched than with a rock show.

Circa Survive is headlining, but the tour also includes MewithoutYou and Turnover.  So rest assured, you'll definitely be getting a review of that show!!
