- I got to see Carved Up do a special Halloween show where they did a Snapcase covers set, dare I say better than Snapcase could have done. Carved Up is TJ Schilling, Nick Norvilas and Josh Cooper. They filled the lineup out with guests Keats Rickard and Ryan Ratajski to perform the Snapcase set.
- I had the privilege of checking out this advance copy of Carved Up's "Matador".
- I went on a walk this week with said advance of "Matador" playing in my headphones. I got lost. Literally. Just kept walking, enveloped in the music. Beautiful fall day, loud music in my ears. Gone. Escaped reality. Carved Up as the soundtrack.
- The week will end up with me seeing Carved Up live at the Burners in Bethlehem PA on 11/13/15 (and then hopefully traveling to Jabber Jaws in Allentown PA to see some power metal later - great night in the Lehigh Valley for music).
- I will also purchase "Matador" in the preferred vinyl format at the Burners / Bethlehem show. "Matador" deserves the respect of being in my vinyl collection, not just on my computer & ipod. You know how I roll. #vinyljunkie since 1971.
Pretty swell week.
