live music heaven

Hope everyone had a good weekend.

It was a fabulous one here. First, thanks to all of my new followers! You
guys really made my birthday that much more special.

So, Saturday was the Iron & Wine concert & it was AH-mazing. If you're not familiar with them, and you like indie, folk music, check them out. There was literally a banjo, keyboard, 2 guitars, 2 back-up singers, a saxophone, a trumpet, bongo drums, and more on stage playing at the same time. Oh & of course Sam Beam's sensational voice. Such an enjoyable orchestration of sound. My head was a boppin & my foot was a tappin for like 2 hours straight.

One of the best part of this concert was actually during the opening band. We learned that when everyone in the crowd calls the person next to them & puts their phones on speaker, it sounds REALLY COOL. I am a sucker for live music.

I miss concerts like crazy. I haven't had the chance to attend many since I became Mommy.

But most of all I think I just really enjoyed being downtown without the kiddos. Some not-Mommy time was desperately needed.

Did anyone else enjoy some live music over the weekend?

Sounds like fun! I went to see some live music this weekend, too. I had wanted to see iron & wine when they came to MassMoCA last week (the awesome museum out in the Berkshires where i used to work when i lived out there) but i couldn't quite afford the road trip. This weekend I went to see the Boston Symphony Orchestra (ok, kind of a different scene) they are trying hard to appeal to a younger audience, so they have great under 40 discounts- how crazy, right? But actually it was a totally lovely experience, and I am glad I went. got to dress up nice and sip wine during the intermission and feel fancy :)

That sounds like so much fun! I love going to see live music, but sometimes I find big concerns too overwhelming. I like small, intimate shows though :) My husband is in a band so it works out perfectly! Sometimes we talk about we we will do when we have kids - I would want them to see their daddy up on stage playing!

Anyhoo, you have a lovely blog :) I'm your newest follower!

Iron and wine is so awesome! So great that you had a great weekend. I didn't see any concerts, but I did get to watch the movie, Water the Elephant.
