Last night I had the opportunity to see the first part of the show at the Hawthorne Theater. There was a band playing called Factor 5. One of the formative members is Rod Hardison, a friend of a friend whom I met at a party recently. Well, he got me a free ticket to see them play, and it was a blast! They were REALLY good! Rod is the guitar player on the far left. I think the thing that surprised me the most was how much I enjoyed myself. I can't wait to hear these guys burn a new CD. I also think I should get out more often and hear some more live music!
