WIRTW #322 (the “indestructible butterflies” edition)

One of the benefits of writing this blog is that, every once in a while, I get the opportunity to very publicly brag about one of my kids doing something awesome. Today is one of those days.

Last weekend, my 7-year-old, Norah, killed on stage, performing with her band for Strongsville’s School of Rock. The setlist:

  • Twist and Shout — The Isley Brothers / The Beatles
  • Time Warp — Rocky Horror Picture Show*
  • Question — Old 97’s**
  • Fortunate Son — Creedence Clearwater Revival

*For the record, even though, as you’ll see in the video, the Time Warp was my daughter’s add to the setlist, she’s never seen the movie. What kind of dad do you think I am? She learned the song from playing Just Dance 4.

**If you’re in the Cleveland area, the Old 97’s are playing the Beachland Ballroom on June 5. I’ll be there (with my wife and daughter). Please say hi if you’re there too.

Here’s the video of Saturday’s performance by Psycho Sister vs. The Indestructible Butterflies (yes, that’s the band’s name):
