She & Him
Friday, June 28, 2013
And I didn't even take this picture. My lovely lady friend Emily did. I was too busy trying to snapchat a pic when I got yelled at by security.. oops. Thankfully, Emily is a ninja and snagged this pic before anyone saw. So yeah, I was there. PROOF!
Let's talk about how I got these tickets in the first place. It was a lonely Wednesday night when at approximately 6:30pm someone amazing text me asking if I wanted two FREE VIP tickets to the She & Him concert... that started at 7:30pm. I immediately began texting basically everyone person in my contacts if the could be to my house in a half hour. My lovely friend Emily was the lucky gal to make it in time, and we headed on our journey.
We picked up the tickets along with a fantastic bag of goodies (ginger ale, sour gummy deliciousness, cereal in a bag, goldfish, the works) and were on our way to Red Butte. The most fantastic thing about VIP tickets is parking right next to the entrance and NO LINES! So we walked in, found some chairs and relaxed. However, something quickly caught our eye. It looked like a mini dance party going on at the corner of the stage. Obviously we raced down there like race horses to join. The opening band, whose name I should know but don't, was absolutely fantastic! Emily and I couldn't get over there awesome outfits! Unreal.
I'm just going to fast forward to when She & Him came on, because all that in between stuff isn't important. So I kind of love Zooey. (500) Days Of Summer is probably my favorite movie, and New Girl is the absolute greatest. Then when I found out she had a band... not real. Of course I quickly fell in love with her quirky and raspy voice. This show was absolutely incredible! I brought a friend who wasn't afraid to dance, so we danced our little hearts out, enjoyed the summer air, and took in the music. There seriously is just something about outdoor concerts and being around people that are so into the music that is just soo freeing.
I have become so used to little local shows, that I had completely forgotten how AMAZING an actual concert with a big time band is. No sound issues in the middle of sets, and everything just sounds incredible! And the crowd!! Man have I missed crowds. It seriously was just the most amazing show, and Red Butte just never disappoints. My all time favorite concert was at Red Butte, and since then it has been my favorite venue. AHH that is just the best part of summer. There is nothing better than an outdoor concert in the summertime.
Do any of you lovelies like She & Him? Were any of you there?!
