Tonight was the free concert at the Gallivan Center. Josh Ritter and Andrew Bird performed and it was awesome. I got out of class and took trax to the Gallivan center so that I could save a nice spot for everyone I knew and then some. I got there at 4:30 and was able to see Josh Ritter's sound check. He played some extra songs just for the few of us sitting there. It was nice. I took a few pictures, along with this video of a cool, old and possibly drunk guy dancing. It was hot outside, but I'm so glad I was there early.
The best song of all though was when Josh Ritter sang Best is for the Best during the sound check. It spoke to me and I needed it.
Andrew Bird was really good too. He can whistle like no other and I boogied a bit. Here are some pictures from the night.
Here's Josh. If I wasn't sure I would be arrested, I probably would have tried to kiss him on his cute scruffy face.
I was glad to hang with Breckan and Spencer for a bit too. It's just nice to be around them.
I really love summer.
