Sleep Fun Facts:

  1. Most adults need between 7.5 and 9 hours of sleep per night – typically we should feel wide-awake and energetic all day without a significant midday drop in alertness.
  2. Light is the most powerful cue affecting sleep: darkness triggers the release of melatonin, a hormone that brings on sleep.
  3. It takes one hour of sleep to pay for every two hours of wakefulness.
  4. A well rested person takes 15 to 20 minutes to fall asleep.
  5. Brief naps taken daily are far healthier than sleeping in or taking very long naps on the weekend.

Caspian (Post-)Rocks the Chapel

For a Wednesday night, there was, according to the lead singer, “nothing he would rather be doing.” For the most part it seemed like everyone agreed. The attendance was undeservedly poor, considering the quality of Caspian’s instrumental, vocal-less post rock, but their mellow/dramatic style was a much-welcomed change from the typical indie-pop.

The crowd, such as it was, made it to the front for some tame dancing and head-bobbing in tune to an Almonds-and-Elephants-style finale involving a group effort on the drums, an all around good ending to a too-short performance. House Settling was a fine opener (they played second after Sleep Well, whom I missed), enthusiastic but overly loud and with incoherent vocals. The instrumentation was unremarkable but pleasant, and served as good warm up.
