Anybody have any idea what these pictures are of??
(Gimme a break, they almost confiscated my "professional camera" and made me swear not to use it, so iPhone pictures are all I got!)
We saw Bright Eyes last night at Boston's House of Blues.
It sounds weird to say I've wanted to see him for almost ten years... but it's true. I started listening to him back in high school. Our friend Pat got given the tickets for his birthday but found he had too much schoolwork (oh Harvard, give the guy a break!) so he asked if we wanted them. Can you believe that?!
He gave us tickets to a sold out show!
Let me tell you.
It is one of the best live performances I have ever attended.
They even played my favorite, which I totally was not expecting. (Arc of Time- hence the lyrics at the beginning.) Ugh. I could go on. And on.
It was.. an incredible experience.
Here are some favorites that they played last night:
Arc of Time
Bowl of Oranges
Road to Joy
The Calendar Hung Itself
Lover I Don't Have to Love (okay.. this song is really dark and messed up, but they performed it so well!)
Eric made a good point.
He said it was the most depressing show he's ever been to,
but also musically one of the best.
So, in short, I highly recommend that you attend the Bright Eyes show if they tour in a city near you.
If you're the praying kind, please say a prayer for all those affected by the tsunami in Japan, and also in Hawaii. I spoke to my best friend who lives in Maui, and am relieved to know she's safe and sound and out of harm's way. However, many are not..
