In April, I had a hankering for some good, solid, live music.
As I scoured the internet looking at all of my favourite bands, I didn't get too far when I realized TWO of my favourite bands were playing TOGETHER in Seattle....for $20...at a "dine and listen" type place...and I knew it had to happen.
This was a similar "it had to happen" feeling as was experienced when deciding I should make the road trip happen. I realize I respond well to my gut instincts on these things!
And so, on Wednesday, I was privileged to go to that "dine and listen" type place, The Triple Door - highly, highly, highly recommend it, by the way - with three lovely ladies.
And...I got to see my two favourites in person. I hope you enjoy these snippets.
Ireland's very own... James Vincent McMorrow:
And The Civil Wars...
"From this valley"
Good stuff, right?
This was the kind of concert where I repeatedly realized I had goosebumps...and I sat on the edge of my seat for most of the show.
That IS the good stuff.
