Band of Beauty

Last night Arlene took me to see Band of Horses. I'd listened to them here and there but wouldn't have referred to myself as a fan - until last night.

Victor (Arlene's husband) is on a new work schedule so I am now her stand-in. I was happy to oblige this request, as I never turn down a chance to see live music - especially a band that I think I could really be in to.

They played The Joint and had some technical difficulties, as most bands I see there do but that was perfectly OK by me since it just meant they were on stage that much longer. The lead singer was super relaxed the entire time and kept his cool under the most frustrating situations. I mean, I've never had technical difficulties in my life but I can imagine.

It was a very mellow Monday night show - as I ran into Branmuffin afterward, he said he almost fell asleep - that's just their sound. Personally, it made me want to go camping which I think had to do with all of the beautiful backdrops they had during their set. With each song, we were greeted with a new photo of nature at it's best. I documented to share with you all here.

While you look at these, listen to this and it'll be like you were there with me.
