1 for sorrow 2 for joy

August 17th, 2009

So we went to the Counting Crows concert at the Ryman Auditorium last week. If you have never been there, I suggest you do at some point in your life. I got chills as soon as I walked in. I lucked out on these tickets because they were sold out. We had read on that we were in for a different kind of show. I had never really heard of Michael Franti and Spearhead or Augustana before getting my tickets. I have loved Counting Crows since I was a junior in high school when I saw them on SNL. That was a long time ago. Anyways, my point is…That was absolutely the best concert I have ever been to. There was no opening act, just 3 bands performing throughout the 4 hour concert! Together! Now what does this have to do with being vegan? Well…Michael Franti is a vegan! And he took the time to talk to us after the concert (@1:00 in the morning). So…here’s my plug for “All Rebel Rockers” as soon as possible. But I am warning you, you will dance and dance and dance. You can’t not. Our 4 year old daughter is even singing the songs already.This show is so amazing, it brought tears to my eyes. Adam Duritz was hurt and still gave the best show I have seen them do. Augustana truly was an inspiration too. The lead singer, Dan, channeled Bob Dylan, and it was awesome. Check out their new CD “Can’t Love, Can’t Hurt.”
