At least I do have days off to look forward to! This past Sunday was a lot of fun. DR and I went to a concert. As I've mentioned, I really love live music. This show was at The Greek, which is a wonderful venue. Not too far, not too large, outdoors...all good. We went to see a band DR likes called Chickenfoot. I don't really know their music very well, althought DR had shown me one of their videos a few weeks ago.
Chickenfoot, left to right - Kenny Aronoff, Michael Anthony, Sammy Hagar, and Joe Santarini
The opening act was called Black Stone Cherry. I also knew nothing about them, but they were younger guys; quite fun and energetic in their set. The crowd was kind of still milling around and walking in when they played, but I think people enjoyed them.
It was cool to see the kind of people who came out. Lots of people our age, old Van Halen fans and such. The badass dad crowd...old groupie type girls....and some people brought their kids. While Chickenfoot played the crowd never sat down. Everyone was on their feet the entire time. Well, we were in the front row of the last section and their were some people behind us complaining, but that was their problem! Even though I didn't know the songs, I had a good time. There is something about that kind of concert that made me feel like the good girl I once was out on a date with her cute rocker boyfriend. I'm such a dork.
I hope you had a good weekend as well. I also hope that your week is less crazy-making than mine promises to be.
For those interested, this week's Saturday Scavenger Shots word is CHIPS. Come on and show me what you're working with :) Oh, and come by tomorrow for some Choose and Defend! Okay.
