On Saturday the hubbers and I headed to Town Hall in Seattle to see The Airborne Toxic Event.  It was pouring rain as we waited outside for the show to begin, but I said it once and I'll say it again:
Worth. It.

View from the second row!

 Mikel phoning Noah (the MIA bass player) from the stage. 
"Seattle is calling you.  Everyone's waiting.  No, I can't talk now...So. How's your mother?...."

The triumphant arrival of Noah. 
Slappin' da bass.

The tiny venue was awesome.  We guesstimated there were like 200ish people.

"Let's pretend this is a rock show!"

I can't pretend to know a lot about music, but if you ever have the opportunity to go see this band - DO IT.  They put on a spectacular show (Johnny Cash covers, say wha!), and it's apparent they still love what they do. 

All in all:
best. show. ever.

    aww, so fun!! i havent heard of them, i'll have to look it up! one of my favorite shows i went to was the faint. somehow our idiotic venue in slc sold too many tickets and the fire marshall showed up and about half of us ticket-holding fans were left outside. we were PISSED! but the faint is so awesome they said they would play 2 shows. my friend and i were right in the front of the line for the 2nd show, so we waited and waited and finally got to go in and they played their entire set all over again. and we were front and center. it was amazing!!

    YAY! I know you've been waiting for this one! So glad you had fun!

    I used to be a concert junkie -- 3 to 5 shows a week! Ahh my poor ears. My favorites kind of depend on my mood at the time. Some of the best shows were Damien Rice, Jason Mraz (the old days) and Muse (amazing!). As far as "entertainment value" definitely Electric Six. Those guys are hilarious.

    I love going to see live music...this one looked like ti was a good time. I don't know if I could pick a favorite...Coldplay at MSG (I won these amazing tickets), James Taylor (my first concert ever), and Dave Matthews Band (because I was 16 and that's when you get into all the good kind-of-trouble!).

  13. Stacey on September 20, 2010 at 7:15 PM

    Wow! Looks like it was "off the chain"(i've been using that phrase a lot lately:-)). Love the pics too! xx
