What a great night! After going out to dinner at Cattle Baron with our friends Jana and Colin, we headed to the concert at The Inn of the Mountain Gods. The parking garage was a total zoo. Thank goodness Neal knows the Inn well enough to know that there is a bottom level that most people don't know about. We found easy parking near the elevators.
The last concert we went to only had one bar and the guys waited for over an hour to get beer. This time we walked right in (hardly any line at the door) and walked right up to the bar. I think they finally got smart and now have 4 bars in the concert area. We got our drinks and found our seats....great seats! We were in the 2nd section which put us on the 7th row. There was about 5 foot between our section and the section in front of us so that made it easy to get up and cheer or leave to go to the bathroom. No shuffling over other people's feet.
The music was great! They played about 4 songs from their new disc that is set to come out April 4th. Should be a great disc.
One interesting thing that happened is a woman that was probably in her mid-30's rushed the stage towards the beginning of the concert. She grabbed hold of Kevin Cronin's (lead singer, top pic) hand and tried to pull him off the stage. Security grabbed her and escorted her back to her seat. On one of the last songs, she tried again! This time she was lead off with her hands behind her back (I'm assuming handcuffs?). After the concert, Jana and I waited forever in line for the bathroom and were just leaving when the same woman waltzed past all the women in line at the bathroom and went into a stall. You should have seen the faces of all the women waiting in line! I don't know if anything came of it because we left.
Last, here is a picture of me all dressed up to go out. My hair is cut short again after about 7 or 8 years of longer hair. I love my hair this short or even a bit shorter. It's so easy to fix.
