Excuse the poor quality camera pictures. I was trying so hard to settle down my dancing feet during the Punch Brothers show last night at the 9:30 Club. Going to shows where you just can't help but dance because the music is so fun has to be the best feeling ever. There was a part of me last night that didn't want to go because I was so exhausted from classes, but good thing I went. Not only would I have regretted wasting money, but I would have regretted missing my chance of seeing them. What was I even thinking? Crazy pants.
Good thing I went, and I had bundled up and braved through the cold. I always go to small concerts by myself just because I feel like no one usually wants to constantly go to every single concert that I want to go to. Believe me, I go to way too many of them. Lots of money spent, and my friends usually don't want to spend it on bands they barely know, unless they do want to see them live (yay). It's so sad. They are missing out on good music...The venue was packed, but I was able to get there early to get a close spot in the front! It can be a bit disappointing to go to a concert, and stand all the way in the back. That's no fun!
Sarah Jaroz was suppose to be the opening act, but wasn't able to make it because she was sick! Heard a few of her songs before and was extremely disappointed she couldn't make it! The set list for the Punch Brothers included songs from their recent EP, Ahoy! and their acclaimed album, Who's Feeling Young Now? Unfortunately, I couldn't meet these cuties, but it was amazing to finally see them live. Since I've been a fan of Chris Thile and his Nickel Creek days, it was breathtaking to watch him perform with the rest of the Punch Brothers. Such a talented group, and I couldn't have asked for a better bluegrass folk performance right there!
