Okay, the truth is I basically chose “The Garden” to cap off this week because it’s the name of the Chinese restaurant next to our hotel here in the financial district of San Francisco, but that doesn’t mean the track off Asteroid‘s aptly-titled 2010 highlight, II, has been any less stuck in my head. If you want proof, all you have to do is ask The Patient Mrs., who’s been earning her moniker listening to me repeat the chorus of the song to — as yet — no end. “In the garden… (garden!)” Yeah dude. I’m way into it.
No record shopping today, but we did hit City Lights book store, famed for Allen Ginsberg having debuted “Howl” there, where I picked up some but hopefully not all the literature I’ll acquire this trip. I hope to hit Aquarius Records tomorrow or maybe Amoeba Music again in either San Francisco or Berkeley, but a lot depends on time. I know Monday we’re headed out to Napa to hit up a few wineries, so I’m trying to fit as much record shopping in as I can before then… because I don’t expect to come back with any money.
Thanks everyone for reading this week. Enjoy the weekend. It rained most of the afternoon here, but was allegedly beautiful back in the valley. I hope wherever you are you’re enjoying however it is.
