photobooth confession

confession: i have a bad habit of chewing on my fingers. not my nails, my actual fingers. when i'm bored, nervous, scared, concentrating...i do it all the time! don't judge :]

the spoon concert was amazing last night. the first two opening acts were decent...the strange boys (opening act #1) were like a modern day beatles. very sixties beach party-esque. it was great for the first two songs, but got old really quick. i definitely couldn't listen to them for long...unfortunately. i wanted to like them because they were so darn cute! oh well... the second opening band, deerhunter, were good. not great, but pretty good. not necessarily the right "fit" for the night's line-up though. they were kind of all over the place...chill one minute and crazy upbeat the next. i felt like i was inside of a crazy person's head!

but i would have suffered through countless mediocre opening acts for what was next...SPOON! i've been a fan since highschool, but never the type that had all their albums and followed their every move. i've heard they were an amazing band to see live, so when i heard they were coming to new orleans, i snagged a ticket quick! i mean, come on, how could you pass up a great band for 20 bucks? exactly. well they lived up to all the hype and then some. although they didn't sing my very favorite song, they still played a ton of good ones :] plus, they are pretty much the cutest band ever! see?

i made eye contact with the lead singer for a split second at one point during the show and i felt my heart melt...ahhhh. dreamy... :]

here's a taste for those of you who aren't familiar with the group...some of my favorites :] (even though they don't show, there are 7 songs...and you should really give them all a listen! these span from their entire career and are different from each other)

Get a playlist! Standalone player Get Ringtones

ps, the tattoo is healing beautifully :] hope you have a lovely friday :]
