A Little Walking Music

Val and I finally got back home after a very busy and productive Saturday between 9-9:30 p.m., and took Walker Evans on his second/evening walk.
While we often enjoy the sounds of the neighborhood and Elmwood Avenue, we we able to listen to something a bit more special and at least as fun as usual, the B-52's onstage from the not-so-far-away Albright-Knox Art Gallery, where the band was playing its set for the Rockin' at the Knox fundraiser.
We caught a bunch of songs during our 30-minute walk (noticing that the sound worked better on the streets perpendicular to Elmwood Avenue than those crossing it), and we stopped at Norwood and Lexington to listen to "Private Idaho," Val's favorite B-52's song. We knew we had too much to do to make it to the show, but we have each enjoyed the B-52's live in the past (myself twice, at the State University at Buffalo and at Darien Lake).
