Moonlady Night

This weekend I went to the Moonlady night at the Bath House. I actually went to see my friends, David and J, performing during part of it. I thought I'd show up for their part and then leave right after. But I stayed for the whole thing. It was so cool and such fun.

I had never been to a Moonlady event but after this weekend I am a big fan! The Moonlady pulls together different talent to perform a few times of year. It inspiring, spiritual, and a blast!!!

All of the performances were very entertaining. One that stood out and completely blew me away was guitar god, Rhett Butler. He labels himself an obsessive-compulsive guitarist, which he IS. Altho he didn't play two guitars at once the night I saw him, he CAN. You can see it on YouTube. But whether he's playing one guitar or two, he plays it unlike any guitarist I've ever seen. He plays it sort of like a keyboard. You have to see it to get it. Oh My God. I'm sure just listening to his performance would be great, but seeing it makes you just say "HUH?!?!?! HOW?!?!?!" Really, really impressive. So if you've never seen Rhett, get out to see him.

Another performer there that night was Lu Mitchell. Oh MY! She's an 83 year old folk singer. And she is probably not what you'd expect from an octogenarian folky. She sings really funny songs about politics, sex, religion...Whoa!

Altho this was a date I took myself on, it was one of the best times I've had this year! I got to see my friends do a beautiful performance, and then had so many other unexpected great suprises by the other performances.
