Saw a great world music/middle eastern group called Niyaz (check out their web page, it rocks) on Friday with my friend Irene and a few of her friends. It was an amazing performance; their music being based heavily on the 13th century Persian poet, Rumi. I bought both of their CD's that were on sale.

I was hoping we could go for some coffee after the show, but it was cold and raining so that wasn't much of an option. To kinda get myself in the middle eastern mood, I watched the first half of Kingdom of Heaven before the show, so after the show, I went home and watched the rest of it (actually I fell asleep before the end).
