Civil Wars Part 2!

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! >_<

What are we excited for!?

Wow! Cobalt and I seem super happy! Why would this be?!?! The actual reason is that we were about to see The Civil Wars live but I’m going to say that We are excited because tomorrow we will post the results of our Fourth of July Cell Phone Picture Contest. Stay tuned! It’s going to be an awesome/epic post full of hilarity and excitement! You won’t want to miss it for the world… :)

Underneath the water…

Hey everyone! Hope you guys had a great 4th of July weekend! Did anyone do anything crazy? :)
Today’s picture is from the Civil Wars concert Cobalt and I went to last week! It was neat! Not only do I love their music (I sang along with every song…), but I love them! They were so cute together, singing their songs and being a little silly and flirtatious all at the same time. Cracked me up… I had a lot of fun… totally worth it to be standing for 3.5 hours…
Anyway, I highly recommend their music (not quite sure what genre they fit into… maybe AWESOME! If you are curious, click here where you can listen to/download their free EP!) as well as going to see them in concert (soooo fun). Definitely one of the best concerts I’ve been to in a while.
On an unrelated but still exciting note, Cobalt and I held a cell phone picture contest for the 4th of July. We got so many fun pictures from our friends so look forward to that come Friday…
