I went to another concert tonight. Know who I saw?
Great Big Sea (they have clips on their website it your curious about why I'm so nutty about them)
Yep - went to see them again. You may recall I last saw them in the spring. But since they are such a fun group, I could see them anytime. Tonight was a bit different. They were playing outdoors as a headline act at our local fair. The tickets weren't too expensive and it got us into the fair for free so all in all a good deal! I'm not sure how to explain their music. It ranges from old folk tunes to pop music. They're a very lively band and very hard not to sing and clap along with. There was a young girl sitting in the row right ahead of us who couldn't sit in her seat. Normally this wouldn't bother me, but she was rather a tall girl and when she stood up, it was very hard to see around her. Plus she was bouncy. Very bouncy. I kept waiting for her to throw her hip out or something but since she was young I guess she didn't have to worry about stuff like that.
Now the person sitting beside me was a different kettle of fish - no, not the friend I went with - the person on the other side of me. He barely moved a muscle through the whole concert and would clap in a rather lackluster way after each song. With his decided lack of enthusiasm I couldn't figure out why he was even there! I guess it must have been the free pass into the fair.
My friend and I, we didn't stand up that much except for the last few songs although I wanted to be as bouncy as the girl in front of me - well, maybe not quite that energetic - I would for sure have done some damage. The accoustics weren't quite as good as they were in an indoor concert but since I have the lyrics all memorized, I could sing along with them anyway. And thankfully no one could hear as I don't make angels stop and listen when I sing. They might stop but it would only be to cover their ears. And I clapped along quite a bit, so much so that my hands are still sore.
But - it was a very good time. I ate fair junk food and even got some cotton candy to bring home with me. And I got some great prints that I plan to frame and put up somewhere.
Aren't they just gorgeous? I would have liked some with a nice guy fairy in there too but they didn't have any. I do have a nice wedding type picture between fairies but it's too big to scan. Looks like he is a king fairy and she's a princess fairy and there is a nice castle in the background. So these other ones can be the fairy godmothers. See - I can get a bit loopy this time of night. I'm still feeling the adrenaline rush from the concert.
In other news - I'm still reading!! I'm starting Slave to Sensation and while not very far into it yet, it's great so far!!
