Saturday night was a busy one...Missy had her second of three back-to-back performances at CANOPY (which I'll probably blog about tomorrow night) and then immediately afterwards we rushed to the 40 WATT to catch ELF POWER and VIC CHESNUTT's homecoming show. Elf Power played an energetic set and then returned as Vic's backing band. Needless to say, the show was awesome and if they happen to be touring anywhere near you in the next couple of months, you owe it to yourself to go...
