We went to see a musical duo called One Ring Zero at my favorite bookstore. It seemed like everyone we knew was there, including Ben Hearst — turns out his brother Michael is one of the guys in the band.
The music was awesome. They perform quirky pop ditties with lyrics written expressly for them by famous authors, using odd instruments like a theremin and a claviola. It was a combination performance and signing for their CD/book, As Smart As We Are.
I didn’t want to wait in line to have mine signed by the actual musicians, so I got mine signed by Michael Hearst’s brother and his second cousin, who was also in attendance.
