A few weeks ago K and I went to a Foo Fighters concert near Pittsburgh, PA. Some people settle for one concert a year (and I guess there are some people that never go to concerts?!) but we decided to go hard and hit three this year- two in a row last week!
Last Thursday we took off to Cleveland with friends to see Ben Rector and Judah & the Lion in Cleveland, and on Friday we went back to PA to see Lady Antebellum, Sam Hunt, and Hunter Hayes. I was a tired girl when the weekend finally hit.
On Thursday we headed north, met up with our friends Andy & Kelsey, and continued on to the House of Blues in Cleveland. Kyle surprised me a few weeks ago and said he actually wanted to go to this concert by a guy named Ben Rector. Since it’s incredibly rare to get K to take a day/night off I was all about this little mid-week date night. Then he invited Andy and his wife, and it turned into a party! Woo!
We dined on the patio at the HOB and headed in for the opening act, Judah & the Lion. It was standing room only (heels were a bad choice) but it was a great show by both performers!

Turns out this was the first show of their Brand New Tour and Ben Rector totally admitted to still working out kinks. It was a great show and the talent of all the musicians was well worth the pain my feet were in and the lack of sleep I got that night.
Since we were so well rested and energetic the next day we did it all again, this time in Pittsburgh with Lady Antebellum. (Sidenote: We were not well rested nor energetic. RIP the days of college and all-nighters.) This time we were a little less impressed… Sam Hunt definitely rocked First Niagara Pavilion, but Hunter Hayes was a serious mess. Lady A was ok, but K made the comment that they seem to take themselves a little to seriously. And I agree.
Anyway, it was a fun night and we had a good time.

And that wraps up our summer concert series 🙂 Hands down, the Foo Fighters were my favorite. Thursday night was a close second, though. K is hoping to find a concert at our favorite venue this winter for us to attend. (The venue is a converted church-to-concert hall in Pittsburgh.) We’ll see if anything comes up!
If you could see any band/singer at any venue, who and where would you choose??

I felt more exhausted than anything else after our whirlwind concert week! Haha! I do love live music, though, so it’s totally worth it!
