Two of you should be as fangirlishly gleeful over this as I am.

She was a programmer, and she mentioned the "code is compiling!" strip; she said that she pondered what it would be like to be a truck driver and wrote some lyrics while code compiled. That's where Homecoming came from.

Aaaaaaaah. AND she played Grandmother Song with my grandmother in the audience. It was also such a small venue that we got to sit 5 feet from the stage and also talk to her briefly afterward, my grandma saying how much she enjoyed the show.

And ERIC'S SONG WAS THE SECOND ENCORE thanks to a very forceful fellow fan of it. That's my song of hers, and I was so disappointed it hadn't been played either time I'd seen her in concert. Especially since she's going to grad school in the fall and won't be performing full-time. So when she and Alex came back in and played it... Yes. I was SO HAPPY.

There is a picture of me with her, but since I do not carry a camera, it is in Erica's possession. (I went with Mom & Grandma & Erica. It was girls' night.)

...Vienna Teng is in Boston the first week of December, for 1 night. I've been keeping an eye on her tour schedule for the past year, waiting for a performance I could make it to. She's with Alex Wong, and Over the Rhine, who I also like if not quite so much.

Be right back, buying myself a ticket.

Really, I'll probably wait a couple days until I have a chance to see if people wanna come with. But excuse me while I go grin foolishly over the fact that she'll be here at Berklee, a very manageable location for me. I have added excuse to go in that I need to review a concert for my music class anyway.

If I wanted to see one of her individual performances, I could drive down to NYC for the 9:30 show the night before she's in Boston, but my mother looked at me like I was crazy when I proposed this.  Until I acquire transportation of my own, which would hopefully happen by then but I have no guarantees, my crazy plans generally require Mom's approval.
