Clad in jeans and a tee, I headed to the music venue. The evening was gorgeous with cooler temperatures and clear skies. The concert was in an open air venue, which was perfect for the night. Going to that event space brought back a few memories of concerts past. I told my friend that I had not been to the amphitheater, since high school when I went to see New Order. Eventually we found good seats on the tiered level of the lawn at center stage. The Avett Brothers took the stage to great applause and whoops of delight. The set went on for quite a long time transitioning from older songs to upcoming new releases. Their seemingly boundless energy had the whole audience, including some children, moving to the music. I told Aine she should come with me the next time the band is in town. She would love the energy and fullness of sound at such an event.
Those boys are great performers, and I admit to cranking more of their tunes on the drive home and even listened to a bit as I fell asleep. Oh, it was such a good night. I am so glad I went.
