Yesterday, I was racing around trying to meet deadlines and get everything done
in a nearly impossible time frame, when I was interrupted by Adam.  "We're
leaving for the show in 15 minutes" he told me.  "What show?" I asked, barely looking
up from my computer screen. "The Lumineers," he replied, "you're the one who
bought the tickets, remember?"  It was difficult to mask how annoyed I was that
I'd have to put my work aside for a few hours.  There already weren't enough hours
in the day, how could I possibly justify going out and having fun?  In that sense,
being an entrepreneur can feel like that student stress and I take on unnecessary
guilt for partaking in anything that isn't work related.

I begrudgingly threw on whatever clothes weren't put away from the day before
and Rob and Jo picked us up a few minutes later.  I've been so busy lately
that I hadn't even researched any of The Lumineers music and was ashamed
to say that I only knew two of their songs going into the evening.  When we
arrived, the opening act was on and we found seats at the back of the theatre.
Listening to the first act, I was sure I knew that voice and instantly started
questioning everyone around me, even though they knew just as much as I did
about this brand, which was nothing.  "Is this Y La Bamba?" I asked, "They
sound JUST like Y La Bamba."  After a little Twitter research, it was true.
I was unknowingly watching a band I really liked perform, and so my attitude
about the evening instantly changed.  After a great Y La Bamba fix (how many
times can I say Y La Bamba in one post?) The Lumineers came out to show
Vancouver an amazing time.

I've never done drugs and can tell you honestly, that concerts are my high.
The Lumineers put on an absolutely breathtaking show that brought me
to my hand clapping, foot stomping happy place!  If you don't know them
beyond Ho Hey, get their cd now.  And if you ever get the chance to see
them perform live, do it.  I can't believe that I considered, even if it were for
just a second, skipping out on the show.  That would have had regret written
all over it.  I ended up having a great night singing and dancing with friends,
which is exactly what The Lumineers are all about!

  2. I'm glad you had a great time. Its okay to take a break, sometimes taking time to enjoy things gets you even in a better mood to do work later. I cant believe I hadn't heard about either of these bands I searched them and love both of their sound. Yay for new music in my playlist.

  5. I love the feeling you get after attending an amazing concert... I can think of numerous occasions where my friends and I have found ourselves singing the songs NON-STOP (and also probably pretty badly) on the way home. Also... why is your hair always so amazing? I can't handle it!
