Now, I have some thoughts on this. The race is already enough of a festival; do we really need a concert? Then again, there's no reason why I have to go to one, anyway, so who cares?
But, then I read further through the email, and got to this, the proposed list of bands:
|John Mayer's a runner!|
And a d-bag.
I find this list absolutely fascinating. These are the bands they think we as runners will like. These are the musicians they think we want to hear. Or, perhaps more accurately, these are the bands that might be available and within their price range that someone in their office thought would work. Still, it's so interesting to me. You can get absolutely no sense from this list of who the target person is that these bands are all supposed to appeal to. Except that it's not yours truly.
Also, wish me luck: physical therapy at 4:15 this afternoon.
