The one about WSP

Ok, so assuming you read the title first, some of you immediately knew who WSP is and some of you were like WSP-a-what?

First things first - our anniversary is May 1.  Tommy and I have been married almost 6 years and they have truly been the best 6 years of my life.  Loveyousomuch, T!  Now onto the real post...

My sweet husband has a favorite band - a jam band in fact, called Widespread Panic (WSP - get it).  He collects live recordings of them from way back when they were basically a bar band.  After high school, he spent a summer on the road following them.  I think his count of shows seen is well over 100.  He listens to them non-stop, checks their setlists online, and talks about what should and what should not be in rotation.  Yes, it's that bad!

Since 2003 when we began dating, got married, had kids, etc, he has only gone to a handful of shows.  And although he has thankfully grown up from his hippie ways, he still LOVES the music. 

So, since I am such an awesome wife, for our anniversary this year, we are going to the Memphis in May Beale Street Music Festival to see them.  They are playing on April 30th - pretty darn convenient.  Not only that, I have begged for arranged from FREE accommodations and tickets!!! 

Yes, I know I rock!


  1. Happy Anniversary(early)

    You are in the running for wife of the year I'm sure!

  2. These guys rock Nik, thanks so much for putting up with me and my "nerdy" ways! Panic has been an integral part of my life to date, but they pale in comparison to the influence you have had on me! You rock harder than WSP ever will in my book! Ride On Red Hot Momma!

    Love Me,
