I think this is the year of concerts for me. I never had time to go to concerts before, but now that I am free from the shackles of college I am able to go more often now. I have seen Ian Axel (twice), Allison Weiss, NKOTBSB, Lenka, and now Sara Bareilles. Each show has been a different experience and I loved each of them for it. Please tell Semi Precious Weapons to back to the East Coast and my year will be complete!
I saw Sara Bareilles this past Tuesday. It all came together from a simple tweet from Amanda. She is now my concert buddy! First NKOTBSB and now this. So great! We first met at Legal Seafood Harborside for some drinks and dinner. The grilled peach salad was perfect, the Purple Jesus cocktail was fantastic, and I don’t think many people noticed me breaking my glass. Whoops!
We walked over the the Pavilion nice and early to enjoy the nice weather and to see both opening acts. First up was Raining Jane and then Joshua Radin. Raining Jane was brand new to me but I had heard for some Joshua Radin before. You might be familiar with “I’d Rather Be With You“.
Sara played a lot of songs from her most recent album, Kaleidoscope Heart, as well as the older Little Voice. Plus she did 2 covers, one of Valerie and of Little Lion Man by Mumford & Sons. She was super chatty between songs which I love, since it really brings shows to life. She swore a lot. It was awesome.
Not bad for a Tuesday night!
