in the moment you can't think of camera adjustments or quality...

Oh Thursday, I don't believe anyone could explain it. Words just couldn't cover it. Really, Wild Nothing??! REALLY?!?! I wish you could have seen how much we really enjoyed & appreciated it. Flying from Portland, paying for a hotel room and walking a mile in more than 90 degree Utah heat to see Wild Nothing...I would have sailed the 7 seas to hear that voice. (I've written about them before, we know how I feel about their music, so I'll stop myself there) Well, one more comment: I could never compare the two but Wild Nothing gives me the same feeling I got when I first heard Jarvis Cocker so long ago...
Bright Eyes. I should have taken more/better photos, but between the singing/dancing/love sharing, it slipped.
Sad and fun...lovely and exciting....
everyone went through so many different emotions in those hours and towards the end it just got a little crazy! the first time they left the stage, some of the crowd started leaving, but Conor and the rest of the band came back for a couple more and they left again as did more of the crowd. When they came back for the third time, a large amount of the crowd had gone and things started getting, well....bras were being thrown and hung from mic stands, Conor going all O.G. while introducing the band...him jumping into the crowd...they showed up for sure. Till the last second...most def, Conor, most def.

bad quality but it's a memory none the less. 
I was dancing a bit, at least you can't hear me singing...
I've got to say, for some reason it was taken to a different level when Conor took his sunglasses and button-up shirt off. Like he was more comfortable or at ease and we all felt it.   
This is one of the many that are already on youtube. It's just way better than mine with everyone singing way too loudly in the the background.
