The Weekend Desk Report

A great big thanks to everyone who came out Friday night for BeachFest!, especially The Blue Ribbon Glee Club, who perform the first Monday of every month at Cafe Mustache, as well as making other appearances around town. Go see them!

For the record, the glee club sang "Teenage Kicks," "Bastards of Young," and "Waiting Room." Then the rest of us joined in - gleefully - and sang "Cruel to Be Kind" right back at 'em. It was awesome.

*

I'll post the party playlist in the coming days, with commentary.

*

I'd also like to thank Adam West for coming back from the dead to be with us Friday night. Here he is with the glee club's Dacey Arashiba.

For completists, there was no column on Friday.
