I still need to do catch-up blogs, but I just wanted to say...
I went to the Counting Crows/Augustana/Michael Franti last night with Chris and a few things struck me.
1. I have never been to a concert where all three of the bands were so intertwined. The show started off at 7:30 with everyone on stage (BTW....thanks for letting me know to get there early, Beth!) and they would all sing each other's songs. I felt a little bad because I had told Chris that we could leave halfway through Counting Crow's set, but they never really had a "set" per se. Odd. Very odd.
2. The name of the show didn't make sense to me. Traveling Circus and Medicine Show. I get the "Traveling Circus" part, but "Medicine Show"? Was the music the medicine??
3. Michael Franti played his hit (see below...it's kind of catchy) and had a ton of kids get on stage with him. Of course these kids were brought by their parents. It was an odd realization that their parents were my age. For a hot minute it felt like we should be at a Jonas Brothers concert.
4. What happened in Augustana's life to make them so angry at God? Oh...I could go on and on about their bitterness, but seriously. What happened??
Okay. That's all of my thoughts from last night. Good stuff.
Oh, wait...one more thing...
Chris...his son's name is Cappy, not Kathy. For once, I was right. I have to say...it feels unnatural and good.
