Florence + the Machine
Yesterday was a quick trip down to the cities to see one of my favorite bands, Florence + the Machine and the beautiful State Theater! I don't get to concerts very often- it's mostly the occasional Charlie Parr Wednesday night at the local Brewhouse, so I've been pretty psyched for front row balcony to Florence for awhile.
I went with Scott and a couple of fellow climbers, including Pete, who broke his foot about a week ago and has been going insane with cabin fever.
I've been playing Florence non-stop in the climbing gym, and this band puts on a true PERFORMANCE! Florence came out in a full cape, dancing around on the stage, twirling, then giving me chills when holding notes under a single spotlight.
I was singing and bouncing and jumping and I can't remember the last time I had so much fun at a concert- especially with such amazing seats!
I even got a quick photo of Pete wearing the hat I made for him awhile ago- knitting in action!! (Or non-action, since Pete's on crutches for the next two months. Yuck.)
I guess the only bad that comes from going to something like this is how much fun I have... and how much it makes me want to go to things like this more... Ooooooh goodness... :)
