The State Theater
Great Big Sea.
Okay, so I took my Mom and I, of course, to the Great Big Sea concert this past Friday. We met at Rock Bottom Brewery before the concert and met up with some Online Kitchen Partiers. It was fabulous to meet people who loves Great Big Sea as much as I do. I'm not sure my Mom is a huge fan, but she does like them and she is my concert partner. So.
We met Tim and Lu, and Suzanne, and Justin, and a few others. I mostly talked to Tim, since he was sitting right next to me. Oh and Diana who had been on the Ships and Dip Cruise. I want to go on that so bad.
When it was about time to go, we paid our bill, and headed across the hallway to the State Theater. Got to our seats, the concert started only a few minutes late. There were a few empty seats, but not too many, all the die hards were there it seemed.
They played lots of their new songs from Fortune's Favor. England, Hard Case, etc. Alot of oldies. They played Lukey!! We heard a lovely lullaby from Sean for his Thing #2 (his second son), it was beautiful. They ended with two encores.. Walk on the Moon and Straight to Hell.
Overall it was so fabulous! We met at dinner a woman named Peggy who had been to the Madison show the night before, went to Minneapolis, and was driving the next day to Chicago to go to their concert on Saturday. What dedication!!!
