We're All Monkeys

Last night my bff (little ak), her friend and I decided to try something new and go see a band play at a bar. I'm trying to step outside my comfort zone this summer and try some new things and get away from the usual NYC scene. And I have to say I had one of the best times last night.

It all went down at Hill Country (which is an awesome bbq restaurant, such a cool environment) and the band I went to see was 100 Monkeys. I have to admit I'm not a huge music buff and wasn't too familiar with their music but I knew that Jackson Rathbone (Jasper from Twilight) is in the band, so that was a major plus. Tin Tin Cans opened up the show and they were pretty cool too but nothing like 100 Monkeys. The music was very chill and easy to get into. All the band members were such characters, it was amusing to watch. Jackson came out with a mustache (as you can see in the above pic) that eventually fell off during the show. It was like musical chairs with them; switching off on different instruments from keyboard, guitar, drums and even a trumpet. They are all seriously talented and can't wait for them to come back to nyc.

See, mustache gone. But hello cutie.

Me, Gab and little ak.

The opening band Tin Tin Cans.
Before going on line we had some dinner. Wow was that mac n cheese delish. That's my vintage Harley Davidson shirt I once wrote about. I swear I live in it now. Plus it was nice to go out and not wear heels and just wear my chucks. A lot easier on the bad knee too :-).
I definitely want to see more bands play at cool venues like this one. If anyone has any suggestions that are in the nyc area please share.
