Thursday “nights that you want her like velvet cake…”
I shall call this post, three for the price of two front row tickets.
There’s a lot to cover this time around … here are my thoughts on each band (yes, they are in order from who I liked the most). I should preface it by saying that Cold War Kids are, hands down, in my top 5 favorite bands list … Read on to find out exactly why
Audience of One
I remember the firs time I heard CWK, it was probably circa 2005 – 2006 (college is a blur). I was riding around in a friends car (you know, one of those friends who listens to band who “don’t even exist yet” 😉 ) and “Hang me up to Dry” came on. That was it, I was hooked. I meeeeaaaan, Nathan’s voice, enough said. I would have to wait a few years to get to see them live but after I did, they were cemented in my list of faves. Again, one of those bands who, if I ever get the chance to, I would follow around on tour. If you think their music is good they are even more amazing live.
Blue Hills Show: I came armed and ready with front row seats and a very high quality sign that read “Audience of One.” (Very cool, I know, haha) . I had peeked the setlist ahead of time and noticed my favorite tune was missing.
Highlights: Matt Maust handing me the setlist (in “exchange” for my sign),
Mister Mauster snapping a polaroid of me and said sign (still hoping i’ll get to see the image someday)
and a shoutout from Nathan (as a result of not having time to play my song, lol). I’ve been to many shows, and have met a few artists but these guys… so fkn cool.
oh, and this….
All I will say is, they are coming back to Boston in November and I will abosultely be there.
Young The Giant
Love listening to their music, had heard great things about them live, saw them, checking it off the bucket list…
Overall, it was a perfect evening (and I can sleep easy thinking about the extra money spent upgrading our seats)… my inner fan girl is still squealing over every moment.
See you at the next Show!
