    Sun 27 May – "Weird Al" Yankovic

    I have never, ever enjoyed a concert as much as this one. The Blonde and I missed our chance to see "Weird Al" Yankovic in October '00 because her ob/gyn suggested that extremely loud noise might be harmful (have I mentioned we have a six-year-old? Do The Math!).

    So this time, there was no way we'd miss, even though it's over an hour's drive away at something over $3.00/gallon. For the ride there, I selected Running With Scissors, which turned out to be eerily prescient, as he played more tracks from that album than from any but Straight Outta Lynwood. The venue was the outdoor amphitheater at Cypress Gardens Adventure Park in Winter Haven, FL, free with admission to the park; reserved seats were extra (of course I paid).

    Not surprisingly, the audience was pretty White & Nerdy, including yours truly (as you can see from my current avatar). Rule One: Know Your Audience! Al has this one down pat.
