Something New #21 – Bel Argosy

1

March 20, 2011 by Darlene McC

Monday night was a surprise when Will, an actor I met when I was down in Baltimore, called and asked if I wanted to go out to Otto’s Shrunken Head and hear a new band.

Hell yeah I do!

So we trecked out far and wide on the lower east side to a hole-in-the-wall Tiki Bar for cheap beer and new indi rock.  Turns out that Bel Argosy isn’t as new as I thought; but it also turns out that they’re pretty cool guys.  For a monday night in the back room of a bar that’s about the size of my living room, I was really impressed.

In my experience, mostly from my early days as a roadie for my dad’s audio production company (true story), most guys under 40 in a small room will have all their instruments turned up too loud because they think it sounds like rock n roll; but for the audience it actually sounds like pain.  What struck me first about Bel Argosy is the maturity of their sound and control; first in that I’d expected my ears to bleed, but later in how much fun they were having while still wielding their instruments.  All and all I enjoyed it and I would see them again.  Check out there website and you can download a track or two for free.

Bonus Something New:

We were in a Tiki bar, so it seemed wrong not to drink a mai tai out of one of there little tiki head glasses (which you have to give a $5 deposit for because apparently the whole world steals them!)

Just a reminder. . . #clearmindopenheart
When the Universe gives you what you needed, say "Thank You!" . . 2018 was a really challenging year. Personally. Professionally. Spiritually. One of the most important things I learned along the way was to stop questioning when I get what I need. Instead I express gratitude! . . Time and again I'd be presented with exactly the growth opportunity or essential thing I NEEDED to survive...and I'd question it! I'd doubt if it was the right choice or if I could pull it off 🤦‍♀️ - until it became so obvious that my doubts were foolish. I was right where I needed to be. . . For #transfomationtuesday share in the comments some gratitude for times you were given exactly what you needed! 💓💓 . . #dropthedoubt #motivation #anothergrowthopportunity #growandchange #gratitude #universalguidance #modernspirituality #thankyou #saythankyou
"Age" has never been my challenge. I don't mind getting older - I don't mind getting wiser, stronger, and more resilient 💪💜 = = My challenges have been negative self talk, the aftermath of bad decisions, and the frustration of not living up to my personal best. Cultivating a growth mindset and working on my relationship with myself has shifted all that. = = We are all a work in progress, and my work is certainly not done. May the next 10 years have the vision and challenges to teach me lessons I can't even imagine right now. = = #howharddidaginghityouchallenge #growthmindset #levelup #curlyhair #selftalk #positivity #positivevibepositivemind #coaching #coachmentality
