The Nylons...

So, tomorrow I will be attended a momentous occasion, The Nylons will give their final concert in Madison, 25 years after their first concert here, they are cutting Madison out of the tour schedule. Why, I do not know! But I do intend to find out! I will be attending the VIP after party, thanks to my inside sources in the myspace Nylons fan group, and the members of the group can expect some hard hitting questions from me about this issue! Not only does the Overture Center practically fill up when they come to town every year, but Madison has a huge fan base for them. I know that there will be many a heavy heart tomorrow as we say goodbye to a wonderful yearly tradition, one that I have looked forward to sharing with Oliver. I am feeling very mixed about tomorrow's show, I know that it will be a great one, but I cant help but anticipate that there will be a sad tone hanging over the evening. The Nylons are a important part of many childhood memories for me, and as silly as it feels to say this, I feel like we are loosing them in a way. Although they will still be around, it will be much more difficult to experience the live shows that I have loved for the past three years. And like I said, I've pictured taking Oliver to see them when he was old enough and I hope that they are still touring at that time so he can have the opportunity to gain the admiration for them that I have.

Despite all of this, I am really looking forward to the show,
I know it will be a fantastic concert and I am really excited!
