I am so NOT a concert person... But I am most certainly a Joey-person and any opportunity I have to go somewhere treasure-less with my man... I"M IN!
So our childhood friend, Cubbie, is touring The US with his band, Foster The People. They were playing at The Walnut Room last night in town. His whole family was there and it was truly sweet to see familiar folks from back home.
Our friend Autumn hung out with our treasures and we had a nice long drive up to Denver. As we were driving out the farm gates Joey looked over at me and said, "So what do you wanna talk about?" It made me smile... that's usually my line. :)
We were able to go out to dinner with Cubbie and his soon to be bride, Bec, at this quaint little crepe restaurant in the center of downtown. I don't know her very well yet, but she's super down to earth, genuine and real, the kind of gal that I could easily pass the hours with, drinking a cup of tea while sitting on the couch in my living room. She's a keeper I'd say. :) Can't wait to celebrate them at their wedding in a few short weeks. :) Yipee!
Back to the concert... the opening band was actually pretty fun, the sound wasn't so intensely loud, so I could actually hear and understand what they were saying. My
favorite part, absolutely least favorite part of the evening was having to watch the zillions of make-out couples who kept on groping each other the entire time that we were trying to watch the concert! I mean, seriously! I'm all about making-out, but there comes a point when you just need to get a room... ya know what I mean? Geez-a-lou!!!!
Ok, enough about that... When Foster The People finally got on stage (which was seriously like three hours past Joey and my bed time) I couldn't wipe the smile off my face. Like I said, I'm not really a concert person but this band is actually good. Like truly. I don't dance either... well, what I should say is, I dance, just not when anyone else is looking. Last year I saw myself on a video trying to keep the beat while trying to skate around a roller rink and unfortunately it thrust me into the realization that I have absolutely no rhythm what-so-ever! :) So now I guess I just kind of bounce. But I truly enjoyed every minute of it. :)
And in the end, we got home after mid-night, which is the latest either of has stayed up since 2005. And as we pulled back into the farm gates I thought to myself how I think we might just need to go out together more often. :)
