I'm not a music reviewer, so I don't really have much to say regarding concerts. (I can, however tell you about protein bars and things like that.) I just like music. I am not very picky about genres. And to tell you something very honestly? I used to not even 'like' country music, (I know, right?) Now, it's up there in my faves, right next to HARD CORE GANGSTA RAP. /sarcasm
Although, I have to admit to you (and this is so not at all related, but I have had too much coffee) on the way to the concert last night, an old school Eminem song came on in the car. Here I am, swapping from CAT-COUNTRY, 98.1, the big country station up here in Boston, to a Pop station, because on the Cape, nothing. comes. in, and I hear Emimem. I KNEW EVERY FREAKING WORD OF THIS SONG.
(Singing it right now. Are you?)
Here's the thing - I do not like big crowds - unless everyone is having fun, but not the really pukey drunk kind of fun, I like the middle of the road type of fun. I don't think I could handle an all-day Country-Fest, even if I thought I wanted to go. I would probably die. But, I could, take a couple hours of it, and two beers. That's it.
Last night, even if I wanted to get up and BOOGIE to What The Cowgirls Do, I would have been slapped. We were surrounded by half of the The Northeast's Nursing Home, and I Am Not Kidding About That, and I am trying hard not to joke. I love me some white hairs, and I am fully aware of the fact that I am well on my own way to dementia, but... when did we get so, old?
I love Vince Gill. I could listen to him tell stories, sing, and tell me how to cook mac and cheese. It's all good. And, even though I got in trouble (everybody did, including a woman near me that swore that she "WASN'T TAKING ANY PICTURES WITH A FLASH!!! while she held up a hugantic Nikon) for taking photos of him that I just posted to the interwebs, it was a fun take. (And, he was in pain, the man is having surgery this week for a bum knee, he was struggling.)
PS. The video will be up in a minute, it keeps timing out on YouTube. Three times now. Now, I am singing Eminem MASHED UP with VINCE GILL! WOW.
Here is my photo video:
