where you’ll find me tonight

the-shins.jpg

I’ll be rocking out with the hipsters and young’uns to one of my favorite bands. hopefully I won’t embarrass the bf too much. last time we went to a show it was for franz ferdinand at the electric factory and for some reason I was the only one jumping around in our area. all the teenagers and early 20-somethings were too cool to move or even sing along. my boyfriend wasn’t being a team player that night (he apparently doesn’t like ff as much as I do he claims). when did I become the embarrassing old person at the concert? tonight should be different though, we both love the shins and, if anything, I can always make him feel guilty since I got these for our anniversary.

    So jealous!! The Shins show here sold out in minutes. They put on a great show.

  • Hanna March 13, 2007 at 6:16 pm

    That’s so cool! They sold out Seattle, but I saw them at a record store the morning before their 2nd of 2 shows. They’re new material is really great!

    Happy anniversary! I love the Shins too – I know you’ll have a great time! (I’m with you, I’m the oldster bopping along while everyone has their arms crossed. What’s wrong with kids these days?)

  • Heather March 13, 2007 at 6:45 pm

    Have a blast!! Rock out to your heart’s content, it’s so liberating to not care anymore, right?

  • Liz K. March 13, 2007 at 8:13 pm

    Damn! I didn’t even know the Shins were playing here tonight!

  • Mintyfresh March 13, 2007 at 8:15 pm

    Oh, wow, I love the Shins! The last show I saw was Clap Your Hands Say Yeah at the TLA; people mostly stood around there, too. I bounced, for lack of room or gumption to do much else!

  • BrownPants March 13, 2007 at 9:04 pm

    Well I don’t know how you couldn’t jump around to FF. That can just go in the bizarro category.

  • nikki March 13, 2007 at 9:40 pm

    Hey fun. I’m going to The Shins in April.

  • Olga March 13, 2007 at 10:16 pm

    My Congratulations to you guys!!! I bet you will have a blast night at the concert, rocking with The Shins!!

    Have fun tonight! You deserve it after all the book craziness. πŸ™‚

  • Veronique March 13, 2007 at 11:18 pm

    Aww, what a great anniversary gift! And I think it’s perfectly acceptable to dance at a concert. Sheesh. My performer friends always moan the immobility of concert goers. It just brings the energy levels down. Not that that would happen at a major show like the Shins!!

  • kris March 14, 2007 at 3:30 am

    happy anniversary! may you rock on for many years to come.

  • Chris March 14, 2007 at 8:41 am

    I hope you had a blast!

  • gleek March 14, 2007 at 10:22 am

    oooh, you lucky girl! i love the shins! have a great time πŸ™‚

  • Lolly March 14, 2007 at 10:27 am

    That so totally happened to me at the last Decemberists show I went to – I was singing along, dancing about, and NO one else was! I missed the Shins here – it was a work night!- and was bummed, but I have some great tickets for later this spring to two other shows…
    Hope you had a great time. And I hope they play lots of “Chutes too Narrow” songs, as well as the new ones. I *heart* the Shins πŸ™‚

  • Liz March 14, 2007 at 11:05 am

    the shins are GREAT live, you just jump around!

  • jenn March 14, 2007 at 11:50 am

    it’s a funny and small world. i’ve been reading your blog for a few weeks now and didn’t realize that we live kin the same area until today. πŸ™‚

  • Kelly March 14, 2007 at 12:24 pm

    Ooh! Have fun. I love the electric factory. one of my favorite east coast venues!

  • j a r e d March 14, 2007 at 12:26 pm

    they give a great show live, althought it will never be like it used to pre-garden state. Those were THE concerts.
    James’ voice kills me though, and I’d love to hear the new stuff live. Have fun!

  • vanessa March 14, 2007 at 5:56 pm
