I had a great gig last week in Tempe, Arizona.  I flew to Phoenix and performed at Arizona State University on a beautiful evening outside on the patio of the Memorial Union Engrained Cafe.  With a little extra time to spend, I explored the campus and surrounding area, and even took a run up "A" Mountain by the stadium.  The giant letter, "A" sat boldy on the hill and tempted me to come take a closer look.  It reminded me so much of my alma matter CSU in Fort Collins which sports the "A" for aggies up on the foothills above town. 

It was fun to see the interesting arcitecture (and palm trees!) on the ASU campus.  I was particularly looking forward to seeing the Grady Gammage Memorial Auditorium, renouned architect Frank Lloyd Wright's final design for an opera house, and it didn't dissapoint.  Though I would have liked to catch a performance inside the giant building, that will have to wait for another trip.  I had a great time and hope to return to ASU again soon.  Thanks for hospitality, Sun Devils!
