Joan Jett Rocks the House at the Mayo Center of the Performing Arts in Morristown, New Jersey

Now, just because I'm home in bed and out in the blogosphere before midnight, don't think that Rex and I didn't have a blast tonight at the Joan Jett concert at the Mayo Center of the Performing Arts in Morristown, New Jersey.

We started the evening with a family dinner (Kraft mac & cheese for the kids, delicious take-out eggplant parmesan and pasta carbonara from Dante's in Mendham, NJ, for the grown-ups) at our friends Susan & Mike's house. At dinner we joked about being too old for opening bands, but we took off in time to reach Morristown by eight o'clock. We left London and Maddie there, over the moon with excitement about their pumpkin painting, band practice, brownie baking "late-over" with the girls' adopted third singin' Van de Kamp sister. Rex and I drove in to Morristown in our new red jewel GMC Acadia, found a parking space not too far from the Morristown Community Theatre, and retrieved our tickets from "will call" just as the opening band was getting started inside. Like our favorite New Jersey Performing Arts Center (NJPAC) in Newark, NJ, there's not a bad seat in the house at the Mayo Center, at least not on the lower level. Rex and I had seats on the aisle in the back, row CC, with a perfect view.

I loves me a good rock show that rocks! Bad Reputation always reminds me of one of my favorite canceled show, Freaks and Geeks. And for what it's worth, the shriveling man parts comment was more about agonizingly wussy James Blunt than slightly boring Cheryl Crow.
