Howdy ho, neighbors!
It’s Monday once again and hello?! Where did the weekend go?
I spent the majority of Saturday walking around in a dead zone – have you ever been so tired you felt like you were living in a dream world? Only it’s reality? And you’re hoping that whatever you said won’t be held against you because you can’t remember what it was that you said??
Did that make sense?
I spent the majority of Sunday first crying my eyes out, then angrily tossing out nearly every article of clothing in my closet, then spending an insane amount of time online trying to find t-shirts that would actually flatter my football shoulders.
It wasn’t easy.
But I’ll talk a bit more about that tomorrow.
In the meantime, I’d like to share two videos that I took of Kevin’s band, Midnite Thunder, at their performance at The Outland Friday night.
(Kevin is the cutie on the left in the blue t-shirt. He’s the guitar player in the below videos).
The guys sounded great and The Outland people liked them, so hopefully, this means they’ll be able to play there again.
Here’s a video of their song Keep Your Hands to Yourself.
I thought the older couple dancing were too cute. And I thought the girls doing their dance thing was also pretty cool.
This video is their song On the Dark Side. It was getting pretty late about this time (midnight) and the people dancing were drunk, but they were fun to watch. The part where the guy stands in front of Kevin and does the whole WOO-HOO bit was really funny. It also gave Kevin a HUGE ego boost.
I honestly didn’t want to go to this. It’s been YEARS since I’ve set foot in a bar and I wasn’t exactly looking forward to sitting out in the audience, by myself, and breathing second-hand smoke, but it actually turned out to be okay because I got to talking to the drummer’s wife (really nice woman – we could be friends!) and then my in-laws, and my sister and brother-in-law showed up (which was weird, but whatever), so I had other people to talk to.
They played on the square, which is in the oldest part of town and I was SHOCKED to see it was PACKED. Not the place they played, but the square in general. I had no idea the square was such a party place.
I ended up leaving around midnight (they played until 1:00) and my in-laws walked me back to my car (which I’m sort of glad they did – there were a lot of weird/drunk people milling around by that time). Kevin made it home about 2ish and we stayed up until 2:30 a.m. rehashing the night together.
I could tell, by his sparkling eyes, that he LOVED playing in front of people and has really missed doing that over the years. I have a feeling this is the tip of the iceberg for him and I see many more late nights for me.
I didn’t drink anything. I was going to get a vodka collins but I decided against it when my in-laws showed up – that just would have been too weird. But if he continues to land these gigs, then all bets are off.
The only part I didn’t really like was staying out that late and breathing all of that smoke. I actually had a smoker’s cough all-day Saturday and I’m not used to staying out that late so I was pretty much a zombie all day Saturday.
But it was fun and Kevin really enjoyed himself so it was worth it.
