Concerts and Balloons
First up was Barefoot Backstage, a little local band made up of four teens from my school, Eagle High. Well usually high school bands.. sorry to break it to you... suck. Barefoot Backstage is a breath of fresh air, not filled with teen angst but rather with folksy lyrics in the style of Jack Johnson.
Next in the lineup was Drew Danburry. An amazing man hailing from Utah, he has to be at least 6'5" tall and can dance like no other. View his picture... just over to the left. You just can't beat mountain man beards.
Personally, my favorite performance of the night was Aubrey Debauchery simply because she has a lilting, angelic voice.. but her lyrics. Ha. Probably the most sexual lyrics I've ever heard, and you just don't expect it from her. I talked with her after her performance and she is one of the coolest people I know.
The last performance was Seve vs. Evan, synthesizer electronica heaven. It isn't quite as fun to listen to at home as at the concert just because at home you can't dance like you can at a concert. We danced throughout their entire set.. probably nearing forty-five minutes of jumping up and down (barefoot, of course, because its so much more fun). My body actually hurt the next day from our intense dance session.
I spent the night with some kids, but of course sleeping is over-rated. Instead we made chocolate chip pancakes at 2 AM.
This weekend was the Boise Air Balloon Festival... so we decided to go see them launch..... at 6 AM. Did you know you need a lisence to fly an air balloon? I guess that is logical, but I never see companies advertising hot air balloon lessons. There were hundreds of balloons dotting the sky and it was quite breathtaking, though quite early.
Question of the Day:
What was the best concert you've ever attended?
It has been a wonderful weekend but now I must leave you to pursue another adventure. Hope to see comments from all of you!
