Safe to Shore

Standard

Maggie and I have started a roommate tradition during the holidays of having a little date night. Typically it involves dinner, but this year, we decided the Of Monsters and Men concert would be the perfect option. So I bought tickets and we were off!

Only to find, I forgot the tickets. Cab home, search and nothing. So now, I’ve lost the tickets. Cab back. Buy some more from someone on the street, go in and have one hell of a time. (Note: lesson learned, it’s time to carry a purse. The stuffing-it-in-your-pocket method has failed more than a handful of times. Time to adopt a new practice).

The show this Icelandic band puts on is nothing short of stellar. Granted, you can’t really understand what they’re saying due to their accents, but their spirit and energy are quite catching. We couldn’t stop smiling, laughing, dancing and singing right along. If you get the chance to see these guys, take it!

Also to note, the band passes around instruments. Everyone pretty much plays every single thing. When the keyboardist was on the clarinet and playing the keys, I was completely mind-blown.

As Maggie said at the end of the night, “Europe does everything right. They have cooler clothes, accents and can play a variety of musical instruments.”

    • I think it’s more punishment if I have to go and pick out a purse and purchase it myself. To really drive home the message of, it’s time to graduate from pockets.
