worth every penny!

So, a couple of months ago i learned of a great concert i wanted to go to. This is the story of the concert, worth every penny, and of course, it wouldn't be one of my posts without pictures to go along with the planning and attending of the

the two artists i wanted to see were Ingrid Michaelson and Joshua Radin
the problem was finding people go to not many of my friends here like the same kind of music i listen to. but i was able to find 6 others to go with, and i was stoked!

Three people ended up backing out for various legit reasons, and i had three tickets to get rid of. i asked every person i knew here...and no one wanted to/or could make it. so i posted the tix up on craigslist. the first response kind of started freaking me out...he kept having to 'reschedule' multiple times and by wednesday and the 5th 'reschedule' i said NEVER MIND PUNK@$$ and i posted the tix up again. within 50 minutes of posting the tix up thursday, i got rid of that was relieving! (ps, the first guy freaked me out because i started feeling like he didn't really want the tickets but wanted to keep talking to me, in a freaky stalkerish kind of way. he kept offering to stop by my house or at work...and then made ME feel guilty for not being available...anyways...)

then, friday, concert day...i had to run straight home from work and get in line to get a good spot on the main floor to get up close and personal with a few of my favorite artists. over all, the two artists i went for completely made the night. Meiko was OK, the Cary Brothers were really boring, other than Blue Eyes, a song that always reminds me of an old relationship (in a good way), and Dan Wilson was down right bad. like seriously, had i drank more alcohol, i would have boo-ed him off the stage. but Ingrid, and joshua....MMMMMM soooo good:)

Cary Brothers:
a little Ingrid:
and the amazing Joshua...more Ingrid...
So, this was her version of Radiohead's 'Creep'. i had heard that this version was great, but i can not even discribe the control of her voice and the inspiring arrangement of it, an already great song. nice work, Ingrid, nice work!!

Dan Wilson, the guy who wrote "Closing time" from the late-ish 90's, didn't gain enough of my respect to get a picture into this post.

Joshua came out to sing a couple duets with Ingrid to finish up the show...soo good:)
the girls that came with me. RR's boyfriend had to leave 45 minutes into the show, therefore missing all the good parts...don't ask...
Us with Meiko after the show:
and my favorite pic...
so, everyone was standing in the corner wanting to get a pic with Joshua...and i just went up and said, a stumbling sort of 'um...Thanks soo much for a great show, you were amazing, really' i went on to say something about my sister having seen him in Colorado and kind of couldn't stop talking...but he was genuinely interested in where my sister had seen him, and that she and we enjoyed the shows. he was more humble than i ever thought. once i finally stopped talking, i asked for a picture, and he happily obliged.

then we headed to a nearby bar and grille for some grub and went home...a great night:)

Ok so we agree Cary Brothers- boring, horrible songs, and boring and he does awful covers of those songs. Ingrid cute kinda like Lisa Loeb. The only thing I have to say though is Joshua Radin.. yawn. Are you kidding me? Just because you see him on Late Night doesn't mean he is good. The only thing missing for me on this show is AM who is great (who does a great duet with Meiko and another great duet with Buddy). I do like Meiko a lot too. Everybody has an opinion.

Ingrid was amazing and so funny, Cary was vocally and musically so powerful, Radin writes good songs but is a bit of a snooze after a while, Meiko is on her way, and Dan Wilson may not be as young as the rest of them but definitely holds the stage with his songs. Overall, a great night.
