Brandon loves coming up with titles for my posts – I will admit that he is much more creative than me and usually spits one out in about two seconds. I just go with it so I don’t have to think about it any more. 😉
My very sweet husband packed our cooler and included dinner for me.
Peanut butter and jelly + grapes. He’s a keeper. Sarah and I got a kick out of the dinner Brandon packed for himself.
Rotisserie chicken – yep, no sides. Just chicken. Guess he’s got to get that lean protein in?
The concert started with The Whigs. I’ve been talking about them on the blog this week but they were in school at the University of Georgia with us and everyone’s favorite band to see. After college they worked really hard to get their name out there – produced a record in the basement of a fraternity house, toured tons and slept on couches all over the country. It worked for them because now they just released their second album and have been touring with some big bands – like Kings of Leon!
They only played a 30 minute set but they were rocking and played lots of our old favorites!
They sounded great live and had a solid 45 minute set. I’m happy that I’ve been listening to the new album because it’s nice to know some of the songs! I will most definitely be listening to these guys much more in the future.
Kings of Leon was the headliner and completely exceeded my expectations. Don’t get me wrong, I love this band and knew that they’d be great live but they were incredible. So much energy and they sounded even better live than on their album. Sadly, there aren’t that many bands you can say that about.
They played a great mix of old and new and even played a couple a songs from their new album that’s being released in October. And ladies – let’s get real – they are pretty good looking guys. 😉
Loved this show and definitely can’t wait to see all of these bands again – hopefully soon! It was a perfect Friday night!
Do you enjoy concerts? Who are some of your all-time favorite bands to see live?
