Before Beatlemania!

My sister, Alison came for a visit this weekend.  Since seeing Jerry Seinfeld in Lethbridge last year, we had discussed the idea of seeing more shows together as an easy excuse to hangout.  We had tickets for Beatlemania! on Friday, and took the opportunity to catch up and remind ourselves why we both love Beatles Rockband so much.

Just last weekend my sister had graduated from the University of Lethbridge.  Naturally, I gave Alison a card for graduating from the 8th grade.  It was a few years overdue, but at this point my irreverent sense of humor comes as no surprise to her.

Before the show on Friday night we took the opportunity to check out the art gallery and museum at the Esplanade.  You can view it for free when you have tickets for an event, but this was the first time I had actually made a point of showing up early enough to see it.  There were several small exhibits on display, including a large collection of student art.  We actually spent most of our time looking at that.

The museum wasn't as big as I thought it would be, but it was well organized and interesting.  After all of the research I've been doing about Medicine Hat for my photo series, it was cool to see some actual memorabilia from the area.  My sister and I had fun exchanging stories about different memories we had from growing up here.  It was a good start to the evening, and soon we were in our seats ready to see just how convincing the faux-Beatles would be.
