The Nadas

Last Saturday with my mom in town we were able to actually go on a date! First one since last march when we got to see Guster perform. 13 months with out a date night is a LONG time, and it felt so weird driving away from the house without a child or two in the back seat. After we parked down town and started walking away from the car I kept feeling like I was forgetting something in the car since the two of us walking away from a car alone is completely foreign now a days!

When we found out my mom was going to be here at the same time The Nadas were, Drew got us tickets ASAP. I (we) have been going to Nadas shows since senior year of high school back in 2004/2005 but the last time we saw them was when Jasper was just a few weeks old at the Iowa State Fair, so it's been a while!

Before they started, Drew and I were talking about wether or not we thought they would put on as good of a show as they did 'back in the day' and I honestly wasn't sure if they would. But I was so wrong, it was even better then I remembered! It was in a small venue and we were right in front and they did not disappoint at all! They played such a good mix of their old songs (some of my Favorites) their new songs (also Really good) and some fun covers. They took requests, switched up their set list (yes I was close enough to actually See their set list- with out my glasses on!) and had good interaction with the audience. All things that make for a Really fun live show. I was having such a fun time singing along to all my favorites that I didn't even realize that standing on a cement floor for 3 hrs Really kills your back. Damn I sound old, but I was seriously sore the next day. Laaaame. Afterwards we turned into those groupies and followed them out back to say Hi and get pictures. As many times as I've seen them play (5, 6, 7?) I've never done that! I felt like a total fan girl and May even have hugged Jason (one of the two leads) as we were leaving. Hoping he had had enough drinks for that not to have been super awkward/he forgot immediately.

And of course some crappy cell phone pictures to go with.
