Swell Season

So Shelly and I went to the "Swell Season" concert on Friday and it was way better than I ever could have imagined. I love going to concerts, the entertainment is just incredible but coming from a musical background it is so nice to hear musicians that have real, raw, talent. So many artists in today's world just depend on digital remastering of their songs and not their own talent, but this was not the case with Swell Season. They are all super talented and their songs are amazing!!
Although we were surrounded by several people that like the same sex (gays), as well as people that looked and smelled as if they hadn't showered in a little while, and standing for four and a half hours straight, it was amazing. Shelly and I decided to make the most of it and so we pretended like we were lesbians too (minus the whole kissing thing) and I didn't feel so bad that I forgot deodorant and hadn't washed my hair that morning ;) I hope you enjoy this clip and if you want more music you can buy the "Once" soundtrack... All the songs are great!!
