I went to the Indigo Girls concert tonight @ Red Butte Gardens. Lovely evening. Very slanted, and my nether regions were numb a large part of the night, but it was a great night. I belted out many of my favorite songs at the top of my lungs & didn't care if the many lesbian couples surrounding me were offended my lack of talent in the singing department. hey - i figure if i have to sit and smell your booze & watch you making out nasty style, then you have to hear me sing off key. my very slanted comment, i just realized might throw people off. we were sitting on a very steep hill. it was hard not to feel drunk - cause a 100% sober person had a hard time maintaining balance.
A couple of things about the girls. I love their music. It speaks to my soul. I'm sure they speak to your soul, too. Maybe the shout to you or whisper to you, but I think that if you're not a fan, you need to think long and hard about what your problems are. I love that they are the most stereotypical of lesbians, mullets & all. oldish, non stylish clothing, jeans that are from the 80's style. and what a crowd they attrack. goodness. My 10 year old niece was with me & she kept looking at me tonight like "ahh!!!" and I'd just smile and pretend it wasn't happening. freak show!
Also - New Music Tuesday stands for more than just iTunes today... The opener was Brandi Carlisle. I was sitting there during her first song & I'm thinking, she's good, I bet she's on Grey's Anatomy. So I text Meeja (my resident Grey's music expert) and she verifies my statement - low and behold, I'm right. Man, I am good! I recommend her! I think she's got a couple of albums out!
Last but not least, as my goal is to make it to bed before midnight (not happening, but I'll try) - I'll be at the zoo tomorrow on a field trip, so I won't be on the blogginscene until later in the afternoon. I'll miss everyone. Try to put your lives on hold so I don't miss anything. (Yes, the world revolves around me)
