Rilo Kiley on the iPod.
Destined to a birthday present for Sean.
Downtown Asheville is a really cool thing.
but no parking anywhere. Towing zones like mad...
Felt a little out of place.
Lots of college kids with lip rings, guys with "man purses", and unwashed hair.
Then I saw some people that could be our grandparents.
I felt a little soccer momish...and then I thought wait...I AM a soccer mom.
It made me realize that the girl with the lip ring, the soccer mom, and the grandma all had the same musical taste. Which to me is cool...a common thread.
We got the word "crispy" stamped on our hands.
The Orange Peel...what a funky place.
Way more intimate than I thought.
Sean sipped on beer, I sipped on wine. 4 glasses, but sipped it none the less.
Lots of diversity in the room...and I love that.
Sean put his hand on the back of my neck, and gave it a squeeze and says...this is just one of the reasons we moved.
I smiled...because he's right.
I went to the bathroom, and waited in line...and the girl in behind me says "We all our have our nose pierced, and its on the left side." She says this to me, and to the four girls in front of me.
I say...yes we are true cliches huh?
We were so close that the only people closer than us were the ones with their elbows on the stage. the others had their fingers in their ears, and I thought to myself "Why are you here then?"
The Ponys performed...I didn't understand a damn word the lead singer said.
The guitar player was drunk and was drinking a can of Blue Ribbon beer.
I was thinking I wonder how many others here like myself had to look them up on iTunes for tonight.
they came out.
The band that had us at hello...well not exactly hello, but had us when we saw them on SNL a couple of weeks ago.
Good music, from people that genuinely seem to give a shit about it.
And that is refreshing.
They were amazing...and I had an incredible time.
And I wouldn't have wanted to spend it with anyone other than my Sean.
I hate that he made us eat at Waffle House (gag) where the waitresses and cook were all sitting in a corner booth talking and smoking and only got up to take our order and give us the food...but it was 2 am...so whatever.
Court had all of my children for 9 hours...and I think she did an amazing job. They played our new wii, ate pizza, played some chicken limbo and I even came home to a clean house...
I am a lucky girl. Thanks court! For babysittin' the childWREN and for Rilo Kiley!
