I am a music freak…..always have been….always will be.  My husband (Rob), however, takes being a music freak to new heights.  If he won the lottery I think he would travel the world to see all of his favorite musicians across the continents.  One of our favorite places to browse for tunes is Criminal Records in Little Five Points just up the street from us.  They send out an email newsletter that Rob reads religiously.  He’s always entering contests to win tickets from Criminal Records….and he wins them….A LOT!  A few months ago, I swear, there was like an 8 week stretch that our friend Lillian at Criminal Records was calling every Friday to tell Rob he had won yet another pair of tickets for a show.

Last Friday we got another call from Lillian and had won tickets to Eddie’s Attic.  Now, if you are a music fan, and have not been to Eddie’s then….well….you really aren’t a music fan.  Eddie’s has launched the careers of countless musicians….John Mayer, Shawn Mullins, Sugarland, etc.  The likes of  Indigo Girls, John Gorka, Sheryl Crow, Ani DiFranco, Brandi Carlile, The Black Crowes, Al Stewart, David Wilcox, Bill Mallonee, Kevn Kenny, Edwin McCain, Richard Shindell, Ellis Paul, Francine Reed, Patty Larkin, Malcomb Holcombe, Larry Jon Wilson, Eric Taylor, Glen Phillips, Dana Cooper, Billy Joe Shaver, Pierce Pettis, Kate Campbell, Cheryl Wheeler, Cliff Eberhardt, Vance Gilbert, Lowen & Navarro, India.Arie, Brian Vander Ark and Don Conoscenti have all played in Eddie’s quaint “listening room”.  Eddie’s is designed around the concept of actually coming to a concert to listen to the music……you will be publicly humiliated and scorned (well, not really) if you talk loudly or your cell phone rings during a live show here.  At Eddie’s you live by the mantra “Live Music Matters”.  I couldn’t agree more.

Anyhoo- So I’m at this concert last Friday night at Eddie’s enjoying my second glass of wine when my friend Andy walks in with the headliner, Sarah Peacock.  Sarah was notably bummed that the photograher that was supposed to be there to document their show at Eddie’s had not yet shown up.  Andy happened to hear her talking with someone outside about the situation and offered up my photographic services.  Seriously, I don’t know why I ever leave home without my camera.  I always find myself missing it when it’s not with me.  Sarah came in to explain the situation and a few minutes later my good buddy Renee was driving me home to pick up my camera and voila…..the images below were taken!  Sarah is on tour now, so be sure to check out her schedule here.  She has a stellar voice and a great raw earthy sound.

I’d also like to give a little shout out to The Duke and The King that opened for Sarah.  I don’t have any pics of them from the show, but they were incredible.  Can you say beautiful harmony?  Rob bought their CD and hasn’t stopped listening to it all week!

Have a great weekend everyone!
