the birthday boy

for tannon's birthday, his brother & his wife gave him 2 tickets to go to a concert. tannon & i are kind of "over" concerts, since they are usually expensive, crowded, and most the concerts we attend are general admission. my back usually starts hurting if i stand at concerts for more than 30 minutes. i'm an old lady, i know.

neither of us had heard of this singer, so we didn't quite know what to expect. the concert was last night and it. was. awesome.

it was at club cafe on the southside and the setting couldn't have been more perfect. we walked in about 30 minutes before the show was scheduled to start and they had little tables set up. we sat down and there was a menu, so we ordered dinner. during the concert, a little waitress would come around to refill your drink or you could order anything at anytime.

the place probably only seats 60 people MAX. no one stood up. my back didn't hurt. my stomach was fed. my man by my side. it was a perfect evening.

and the best part was that it was a smoke-free club.

the opening band was a local band called the wreckids. they are a darling husband & wife who are acoustic and hilarious.

then david berkeley. he is also acoustic. i LOVE his voice. he is very talented. i guess there were supposed to be 2 others there with him, but they didn't get on a flight due to the storm, so it was just him.

here is a clip {not from last night}, if you're interested. i always love finding new music.

brinton & caitlin - thank you for the perfect gift.
