Aaaaahhh, back at First Avenue where I belong. Tonight we checked out Heartless Bastards who we have heard nothing but wonderful things about from all of our critic friends. To be honest, I thought they sounded great live, but I wish they would have loosened up on stage a bit more. I like to see my musicians dance a little and have some fun.
We only stayed for maybe 10 songs (they played a 2-hour set and then an encore, according to my twitter friends), and then we split. It wasn’t that we weren’t enjoying the music, but I am coming down with some sort of cold and I can feel it in my head, and I know how valuable sleep is at the onset of illness. Look at me, acting like a responsible adult and all that.
Well, um, I also knew I needed my rest because I really don’t want to miss the Vicious Vicious show tomorrow night
If you want to see more photos from the (start of the) show, they are up here. Enjoy!
SIDENOTE: I keep forgetting to mention that I’m giving away free photography to ONE wedding this year! And you don’t even have to live in Minnesota to win. So if you are getting married, or you know someone who is, please go and enter the contest. All you need to know is over here.
