Yesterday & The John Mayor Concert!
Yesterday was an interesting day! I wake up at the crack of dawn every day for 2 reasons: I cant breathe ( allergy issues from pregnancy) and Boppie. She insists that I wake up with the sun, and if I deny her that she will pounce on my head and growl and pull at the covers for as long as it takes. She never even blinks an eye at Erik, but Momma MUST get up. So we go about our usual routine and when I walked out of our bedroom I was blasted in the face with an Arctic breeze, so cold in fact that i KNEW something was not right immediately. Turns out our back door was wide open all night ( it was in the 20's) so our whole house was FREEZING. What is really ironic about this is I called my mother to complain and whine and she said the SAME THING happened to her that night, and she woke up to an open back door and freezing house. craziness!
So we spent the very cold day finishing our master closet ( will post pics later) and then used our Groupon for RuSan's Sushi before the John Mayor concert. It was fabulous and packed out! Samantha, I totally got a Gone with The wind Roll!
Then on to the concert. Lots of fierce cougars and teeny boppers galore. What I had forgotten about pop concerts with Teeny Boppers is how LOUD they are ( and silly) whew. That wore me out. Michael Franti and the Spearheads opened and they were awesome. He really rocked out, and was a great entertainer. He left the stage a few times and was dancing through the crowd and what not, and below you can see him standing right next to us. He is much taller than I thought!
Then Mayor came on. He started at like 9:30 which is pretty late these days for this little momma! The first set I was bored to tears but the second one was really great. He played "Comfortable" which I think is the best song he has ever written, at least before Continuem. What was most interesting though, was his speech at the end of the show. He was apologizing for his terrible, awful, interview in Playboy Magazine. I had not heard of it before then ( because I swore off perez) and read it when I got home. After reading it I can see why his back up singers were crying when he apologized. He alienated his entire band in that interview. What an idiot. I know some of y'all love him, and that is cool, but I think he is an arrogant jerk, and I have never enjoyed his sense of humor or his obsession with media attention. Anyway that little speech did redeem him some in my eyes, but the whole episode made for a rather interesting concert! Click the link above to read his interview. You will be Blown Away!
** Now I must ask you Candace, Heather and coco bears, Do those faces he makes when playing not disturb you? He looked like Jim Carrey up there last night! **
