Before I share what I want to share here, I have to tell you all that I’ve had a pretty crappy week overall. I just don’t want you all to think that my life is peaches and sunshine. I assure you it is not (I’m going back to WW tomorrow…gag). But, despite my crappy week and pity kegger (much bigger than a party…sadly, though, no alcohol was involved, so it’s a bit of a misnomer), there always seems to be a bit of sunshine.
This week, the sunshine came in the form of a fantastic concert. It’s that time of year again, thank goodness. Yesterday, right after work, Sarah, Candice and I headed to Salt Lake, where we met up with Emily, Heidi and my friend, Rebecca, to see Ingrid Michaelson and Joshua Radin in concert.
It was a great show. I hate the venue it was at, but otherwise, fantastic! I love Joshua and was excited to see him again (although, I now see that he has some issues…which is probably why I’m attracted). Ingrid was phenomenal. Sadly, I forgot to take my camera in (well, I remembered, but by the time I did, the line was starting to move), so no great video footage of Ingrid and her bad self (she’s hilarious) or Joshua telling the story of his sad breakups. We did manage to get it after for some great pics with the artists. Candice is also planning becoming BFFs with Ingrid, so that will make me Ingrid’s BFF once removed. How awesome is that?
And here are some downloads for your listening pleasure:
Paperweight – Joshua Radin and Schuyler Fisk. Sadly, they broke up, so he can’t play this song anymore. But the breakup did inspire a great new song called You’ve Got Growing Up to Do …ouch. And that’s why I’ll never date a musician. (You can listen to his new stuff on his MySpace page).
The Fear You Won’t Fall – Joshua Radin
Breakable – Ingrid Michaelson
The Hat – Ingrid Michaelson
Oh my gosh! They are my FAVORITE! I’ve been listening to them on my ipod all week. It’s funny because I loved Joshua Radin-then found Ingrid-THEN found that they sang together! Perfect! It’s cool you got to see them in person.
that sounds so fun! i love ingrid’s song “the way i am”
i am soooo jealous! i love josh and ingrid. boooo. i definitely need to get out more.
I am going to go check Joshua out. Just for you. 🙂
I LOVE JOSHUA RADIN! I have a couple of his EPs on iTunes! So chill with a really great voice.
I need to go back to WW again… someday. dang.it.If you said your life was fabulous all the time we wouldn’t believe you anyway. Thanks for the dose of reality.
