LIGHTS

All through high school I always wanted to go to concerts, but I never really got to. But in the last few years I've gone to some great ones! The most recent was Lights, a Canadian electro-pop singer. I was really impressed by her... most of the people I've seen live sound completely different. I don't mind when singers don't sing quite as well live, mainly because I would be nervous OUT OF MY MIND, so I am sure they get that way too. But Lights...she sounded AMAZING. And she was really good with connecting to the audience. I just plain loved it.

 

 
On top of being talented, she's adorable! 
And now, here's some pictures of me and Alanna at the show...a lot of them





 
I was also REALLY excited to wear my vintage Pierre Cardin shirt that I got from the lovely Rachel of MouseVox Vintage.  I actually got the shirt on her Ebay store...but I like her Etsy shop better :)

And this is the opening act, Jeremy Fisher. Every time I heard his name I thought of the Spartan cheerleaders on SNL (you remember that one? "Bobby Fischer, where is he? Idonknow Idonknow")  He was obviously very influenced by Bob Dylan...which is fine by me! He was funny, played the harmonica, and his voice was quite good. I highly recommend these two artists. And thanks to Alanna for taking all the pictures!

I can't embed the video that I want to, but go watch it here!

My next concert is going to be a bit of a genre change...Garth Brooks! Ok, before you judge me, I AM from Tennessee. And in my opinion he is one of the only great country singers EVER.  But anyway, I hope you all are having a wonderful weekend!

Oh fun! I love all those blue / pink / purple lights. Looks amazing.

I've never heard of Lights (poss because I'm not into techno in any way shape or form, but I do like Canadians...). I'll go and youtube her for you. x
