A few weeks ago, Cobalt and I got the opportunity to go to a small meet and greet for one of our favorite new bands: The Civil Wars. We got to see them in concert last year and that was pretty awesome but this was even cooler. We showed up to the record store with these bracelets Cobalt got at Record Store day and we were whisked to the back of the store where the Civil Wars performed a very small concert for us (and other people too obviously, as you can see from the pictures). By small, I mean 4 songs. But it was still neat. The sound was really good too for the inside of a record store. Then after the 4 songs, all of us braceleted people got to get in line to meet and get stuff signed by the Civil Wars. They were in a rush so we didn’t get to get pictures with them but we did get to tell them that we are using one of their songs for our first dance song at our wedding and they were pretty excited about that! :) We also got them to sign the EP of that song. Sweet!
Some pictures. Above: wrist bands. Below: Joy and John Paul singing away and then a picture of them signing things! I love Joy’s smile in the last one… Sorry about the crappiness of that picture. My Canon Powershot and I are not currently agreeing on most things picture-like.
Have you ever gotten to meet one of your favorite bands? What was it like? Cobalt was amused by how awkward and starstruck I was upon meeting the Civil Wars… It’s not like I get to meet famous people every day, geez! >_<
