UPDATE! oh my goodness! what an evening i just had – i swear i had the best time seeing donna summer (except for when one of her backup singers sang a song about jesus – which i thought was a total buzz kill and super lame) when we first arrived around 8:45 – people were sitting in our seats – i seriously didn’t think she’d start on time at 8:30 but she did (no opening act) the people in our row were so damn bitchy for no reason – one little ugly asshole queen had the nerve to tell us we should be on time (it was totally none of his business since the seats were not on a first come basis) the management at the hollywood bowl ended up providing us seats 15 rows behind where we were supposed to sit (i’m going to write up a complaint) yet i was just happy to have our seats plus we had plenty of room to spread out and dance – we were seated just in time for on the radio – i literally danced (and sweated) my ass off along with my pal sam! for being almost sixty – i thought ms. summer’s voice was impeccable and she looked super fabulous! of course for the final song she performed the last dance which was a perfect LA send off for my friend who has been so generous and kind to popbytes – although she’s moving to NYC (i’m secretly jealous) i told her before we parted ways ‘this is not goodbye’ she’ll be back and i will make my way to new york! many thanks must go out to my pals carmen & martha who both totally know how to hook a blog up – you guys rock! popbytes over & out for tonight…xxoo (oh yes i’m sleeping extra late tomorrow…)

hey y’all! i’m just about to run out the door to walk over and see disco queen donna summer at the hollywood bowl – last night i downloaded one of her greatest hits album and i was quickly reminded just how many hits the lady has produced – my favorite (although it’s hard to pick just one…) is on the radio which i love (video is posted below) especially how the song picks up tempo! ms. summer still looks great (she turns 60 in december) and recently released a new album called crayons and features stamp your feet which she performed on american idol a few months ago – it’s a totally upbeat track – have a listen over on ms. summer’s website! not only will it be a disco filled evening – i’m getting to hang out with my pal sam before she moves to NYC! i’ll do a quick update to this post when i return home later – popbytes over & out for now…xxoo
