Well presumably she makes the effort to go because she can see how important it is to you but there's only so much you can expect of that, you know? I think in any long term relationship, you sometimes take turns going to things as a favor to your partner that you would just as soon skip if you were left to your own devices. I think in those cases showing up is enough, it's not fair to also expect fake enthusiasm.

This reminds me that I have seen a relationship break up partly because the guy didn't seem to understand the lifestyle consequences of the fact that my friend's job required her to get up at 4.30 am. and not everyone can easily maintain a totally different sleep schedule on their days off.

If I gotta go, I buy my ticket, get a good viewpoint and rock out by myself.

Oh I am all about the balcony these days.

Weeknights can be tough, sure; it has to be a show I'm SUPER excited about to get out on a weeknight. But even on the weekends, people are non-committal and don't want to do shit.
And I guess that's the thing, being non-committal. If someone said "Meh, I'm gonna pass," that sounds totally cool. But instead it's like "Oh, I like them," or whatever, but not "Yeah let's do it!"

Yeah, we already have that night owl/early bird thing going on, usually she goes to bed around 10 and I read a book or code until midnight. It's very nice. She just feels like she is letting me down when I go to things without her. Even though she goes to things without me?

[I think maybe what I need is... a guy friend to go to shows with. I think "dan is out to a show with his fun rock and roll gal pals" is not her favorite because she feels like she is being compared. "{gf} is boring so I'm going out with Asherdanielle The Fun Girl" Unfortunately I am not friends with many men!]

My GF's family got her tickets to see this new NPR show that replaced Prairie Home Companion. It was billed as an episode about the influence of Scottish and Irish traditional songs on American folk music, which sounded awesome. Instead it was 2 hours of... something else. I guess maybe it was more like modern American music that is influenced by 1960s/1970s Irish/Scottish musicians.

There was one really awesome part: the host brought 4 of his buddies who are regulars at an "Irish Music Night" at a bar on the lower east side. They set up their chairs in a little circle and played some classics with accordion, fiddle, etc. That was really awesome to see in Carnegie Hall.

(Also, Bela Fleck. Not my cup of tea but always nice to see someone who's a master of their instrument at that level.)

Metal. Lots of metal. The new Panopticon and Noctule albums are very good.

Also, Built to Spill, The Kinks, Fugazi and The Jesus Lizard.

Some things change, some things never change.
