40...

No point in beating around the bush. I’m still trying to digest this, but yesterday was my 40th birthday. And what a day it was, waking up at 11am seriously hungover and the apartment looking as if a bomb had went off. But we had a ball Saturday evening/night and I got some really lovely presents, which easily compensated for the rough times yesterday. However the true highlight of the evening was that the incredible talented Stefan (the young man in the picture - will try to find a more appropriate picture without a beer) of Northern Portrait showed up with his guitar, and played two acoustic sets including every Northern Portrait song, a few by The Mirror Lounge as well as cover versions of several timeless classics like There She Goes, There Is A Light That Never Goes Out,The Wild Ones and my wife's favorite; One. This also gave me the great opportunity to have a lengthy chat with Stefan and get a few updates on the band, and I’m probably not revealing too much by saying that things are slowly but steadily progressing. Both regarding the debut album and concert dates. So all together it was one terrific night and I will now return to digesting...
+ Northern Portrait - Crazy
+ Northern Portrait - I Give You Two Seconds To Entertain Me
+ The Mirror Lounge - Returns
+ The Mirror Lounge - Drifting Into A Secret Area
+ The Mirror Lounge - Don't Hunt Me Down
+ The Mirror Lounge - So Suddenly
