In the Midst of Music

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!

Props to the photo-bomber...

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!

If you're ever in Cleveland for the night E 4th Street has some cool restaurants and such.

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.

Friday

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.

Waiting for the show to start!

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??
