Films and Concerts

Watched _Tea with Mussolini_ last night (on DVD of course). It was great, and we're glad we finally saw it. We were intending to go see it when it was in the theatres, but somehow we didn't get to see it.

I was browsing the usenet newsgroups this evening and noticed that Dream Theater and Spock's Beard are scheduled to be performing in San Francisco on Aug 16. Excellent! Navigate to basstickets.com and bought a couple of tickets. We're not missing out on them this time (I missed the last DT concert and regretted it.)

Jethro Tull are playing in this town on Sep 1, so far no online vendor has tickets available, but we could always go over to the Marin Civic Center Box Office and actually buy them in person <g>.
