If you could hear me right now, my voice sounds like I sucked down a pack-and-a-half of Salems and slammed four Jaeger bombs last night.
However, I didn't! I was a good girl, but had an awesome time!
We saw ELEVATION, touted (like my big word?) as the planet's No. 1 U2 Tribute band, and guess what?
THEY ROCKED THE HOUSE!
From Sunday Bloody Sunday to Vertigo, and all the old school songs, Bullet the Blue Sky, With Or Without You... Oh my gosh, they were IN CRED IBLE!
And this band played till like 1:30 in the freaking morning. While we were loving it, and singing along and hugging other patrons, they kept playing and playing and playing. The lead singer, "Danno" is a dead ringer for Bono, complete with the aviator shades, Bono's mannerisms, his jackets... Just fun, fun, fun!
And I paced myself, one drink to every two glasses of ice water. I think I only had five or six drinks, and while that seems like a lot, put it in this perspective -- we got to the bar at 6:30 because we heard the place would be packed and we wanted to make sure we got in. So, from 6:30 till 1:30 in the FREAKING MORNING, (which is just way, way, way too late for this Manic Mom), we drank and ate, and danced, and laughed and listened to an incredible group of musicians.
And the best part? Unlike last Sunday, I am awake! I am alive! And hubby's making the moves on me as we speak...
I'M SO SICK OF IT!
(Hahahah, that's a line from a U2 song, Sunday Bloody Sunday, very appropriate as he is reading over my shoulder massaging my neck and ... well, I guess I'll go start my day... )
Who's YOUR favorite band to see live?
PS--check out earlier posts--I blogged each day this weekend, busy, busy, busy!
