There’s something very calming about driving to karate classes with my son and a warm breeze rippling through the car’s open windows while “Topeka” by Ludo blasts over the car speakers.

Avery sings "Topeka" by Ludo… sort of

Avery has been singing “Topeka” by Ludo for the last couple weeks since seeing them live at the Apple Store. Today, he decided to sing the song while his friend Levii “played” the guitar.

The lyrics are completely wrong, except for the opening line, but he’s convinced himself that’s how they go. I’m putting the song on his iPod to help him learn the correct words, but for now you can listen to this.

Ludo – Live at the Apple Store

I had one of the most sublime experiences of my life today.

My favorite band, Ludo Ludo, performed at the Country Club Plaza Apple Store this afternoon. I haven’t been able to see these guys live for a couple of years now, and it was very refreshing to get this opportunity. It was also my son’s first ever concert, and even though it was a brief acoustic set, he thoroughly enjoyed it.

To those of you that missed it, I’m terribly sorry, but if there are other awesome bands planning to play the Apple Store in the future, I’ll do my best to keep you informed. I have several pictures posted below for your viewing pleasure.

Probably the best part of the entire event was listening to my son turn around and say, “I’ve heard this song before!” That was for Topeka, one of my own personal favorites. He also got his first ever autograph, pictured below, and even shared a dialogue about his Darth Vader shirt with Andrew during the set. Also, I am now the proud owner of a one-of-a-kind iPhone case that I can never actually use again for fear of rubbing off the awesome (pictured below).
