There's nothing like listening to live music. Tonight at Crosspoint Church (whose web page is currently down for some unknown reason), we went to Higher Grounds - sort of an open mike night for local singers and songwriters. There was some great local talent - including Doug Stokes of The Shoals and Matt Johnson, among others. A few of our own members showcased their talents - Shawn Puryear (with a wonderful song he wrote himself), Scarlett Thompson, Al Jackson. Oh, yeah, and some guy named Brad singing some obscure country songs (Sweet Southern Comfort?). I didn't get there until an hour after it started, so there was probably some good stuff that I missed.
There was a pretty good range of music - both popular and original, secular and Christian. I heard more than one Johnny Cash song tonight.
I understand that the plan is to have it every 4th Friday; I'll be making plans to be free those nights.
Here are a couple of poorly lit pictures to enjoy:
