shannon at tokyo rose

last night shannon worrell played at the tokyo rose. it was the first time i'd seen her play in years and it was amazing… i sat right up front with peter and carrie and sang along with every song. i've had "shoot the elephant"--a song i used to play with her--in my head ever since. 
shannon and i haven't spoken in any depth since her deal with the enclave fell through and she and kristin both got married and stopped playing together. i don't know how she feels about all that… were her dreams dashed? or was she relieved to be able to retreat from that world? she has a young baby now, and seems to be pretty happy about that. 
at any rate, she played a truly inspirational set. i hope to see her play more often.
