Again, I neglected to post photos yesterday…but this post will have many photos to make up. 😉
We had a lovely time Friday night at Kelly’s goodbye concert. It was very, very kind of Jenn and Scott to open up their house for the party…see, originally, the concert was going to be at Madame Mocha’s, that cool little coffee shop on Lovejoy.
Unfortunately, about a week and a half before the show, Madame Mocha’s shut down. 🙁
Panic! But fortunately, it all worked out in the end.
The guys did two sets, and let Kelly choose the second set. The second set consisted primarily of rarely (or never!) performed Ookla songs, some dating WAY back. The Lemon-Ohs song, for example. This gave Rand and Adam a chance to tell some entertaining stories and do some seriously silly stuff.
For example, they did a super-speeded-up version of (oh no…I’ve forgotten which song it was. Rand?). The above photo is of Wolfram during that song.
Everyone seemed to have a great time. I was especially happy to see Thomas make it out, because we so seldom get to hang out!
Rand and Adam presented Kelly with a big ol’ pile of set lists and other memorabilia. Kelly collects their set lists, and she apparently said that if she ever got to 100, she was getting an Ookla tattoo. The pile of set lists included a certificate promising that the band would pay for her tattoo. 😉
Jenn also made a really cool card (with photos!) for Kelly and had everyone sign it for her.
Kelly has been a great friend to the band, and I know she will be dearly missed.
And the rest of the weekend? Nothing that terribly exciting. Maybe later. 😉
