Hi! So I wanted to talk about some of the things J and I did this weekend that did NOT involve having the truck hit haha =)
Saturday night we went to House of Blues to a concert for my dad's birthday.
The opening band was amazing! They are Anchored
They were super friendly and loads of fun. They have been together for a year and a half and are already opening at HOB!! I love their music and they have THE most enthusiastic bassist EVER. I can't wait to see what they do in the future.
The second band was Cold...i didn't really like their music. Or their performance for that matter. They were very good live -- well they sounded good. BUT they were very depressing and dark and I just wasn't feeling it.
The headlining band that we bought the tickets to see was Volbeat
They are incredible live. The lead singer sounds amazing live -- as good as the cd. That is always such a relief for me. I can't listen to bands if I find out they are horrible live. You HAVE to be really good live, otherwise I know that you aren't a great performer - that a lot of technology goes into the way your cds sound.
|At the end of the night -- the birthday boy looks so happy =)|
We had some drinks before we left the house -- I had two then at HOB I had two more...for those who don't know me, understand that 4 drinks for me in a 5 hour time frame is, sad to say, a LOT for little ol' me haha! Needless to say I was definitely buzzed...which was confirmed the next morning when I woke to look through my pictures and found I took 140 the night before -- most of which were taken between 9:30-12:30!! haha Hilarious!
My parents took J and I to Perkins at 12:30am after the concert and it was AMAZING! haha I always want breakfast food when I have been drinking -- especially french toast/pancakes!
|Walking into Perkins|
I told J that I probably won't ever go to another large venue to see a concert -- HOB was just WAY too much fun!!
Sunday night, while watching Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs (which was UNBELIEVABLY cute!!), J and I both got a craving for some s'mores. We have a glass top stove and we have a gas grill. J didn't feel like firing up the grill so I suggested the microwave. That was deemed lame so J went to his work truck and pulled out a torch.
Yeah -- this happened =)
Do you like going to big crazy concerts?
or do you prefer small, intimate venues?
Have you ever made s'mores using something unconventional -- like a torch?
