When I got home from work on Friday, the stress of the week and the next morning’s flight to San Francisco had built into a painful knot in my stomach. Not only had I not packed, but we were supposed to pack up Rufus and drop him off at Sharon’s friends house and then attend the Ex Hex concert at the Electric Owl before getting up at 4:30am to head to the airport.
Fortunately for us, the Ex Hex show was early and since I had already bought tickets, I reluctantly chose to stop in on the way home from dropping off Rufus and get the show over with.
I’ve always enjoyed seeing shows, especially in small venues like the Electric Owl. Once we entered I immediately felt the knot of stress start to loosen. When the three ladies from Ex Hex jumped on stage and began to play their upbeat, guitar heavy rock, the stress dropped right off and I wondered how I had managed to become so wound up in the first place.
Stress now gone, we lost ourselves in the high kicks and guitar riffs on stage. Definitely one of the best shows I’ve seen in the last couple of years.
