holy frak! *

So last Saturday night after a week of ick, I caught a free concert with a couple friends. The Grand Performances Series in Downtown LA opened its summer season with Bear McCreary, the composer for the new and improved television show Battlestar Galactica, orchestrating and playing his original music along with his regular crew of musicians.

(PS you should watch this amazing show, especially now that it's out on DVD and you have no excuse to not watch.)

This song was the highlight of the performance that night - Katee Sackhoff, who plays the character Starbuck on the show, briefly joins composer McCreary on stage for a piano duet that she performed on the show during one of its last episodes. The fans lost their minds.

Also, check out how bad-ass the fiddler in the white jacket is (he's center-stage right, which means if you're the audience, he's on the left side of the stage.)

I was in the third row that night, drinking hot chocolate. Life is damn good.

*yes, I swear like a nerd.
