Glee Live!!! in Concert

With the Glee phenomenon sweeping the nation and capturing my heart it was clear we had a one-way ticket to the concert with the original cast. We got Bailey and Aunt Karen on board to come with us and Bailey's friend Riley came along too. Riley, Bailey, Lucas and I had a lot of fun at the concert (The girls might have enjoyed themselves a bit more).  We made sure to sing along to all the songs, while Lucas naturally became the photographer of the "grand" event.  As I looked around the Gibson Amphitheatre, I saw the same "glee" on Lucas' face as many of the other fathers/husbands/boyfriends had.  Most of them probably didn't want to be caught dead in that place but there was a mutual understanding between them that they were being "supportive" by being dragged there.

Daughtry and Lifehouse Concert and Lucas' New Job

Fresh off of the Sugarland concert, I planned a Girls Night with some girls at work to go to the Daughtry and Lifehouse concert at the Nokia Theater.  That venue was one of the best indoor venues I have ever been to because of how acoustically sound it was.  We started off the night by grabbing dinner at Rock'N Fish where I had one of the best crabcake burgers I have ever had!

We entered the concert at the perfect time, minutes before Lifehouse came on stage.  Boy, did they start the night on a good note.  After Lifehouse played their setlist, everyone was waiting anxiously for the grand entrance of Daughtry.  The whole concert was completely overshadowed by the encore; the main singers from Lifehouse and Daughtry sang a duet mash-up of their most popular songs, You and Me and Home.  It was by far the highlight of the concert and made the whole audience wishing the concert wouldn't end.

Also on the same day, Lucas started his new job at American Golf.  We are so happy and excited for this change and with this new job.  Now we can't wait to learn how to golf.  If anyone has some pointers, please let us know!

Sugarland Concert = Best Concert Ever

We were off to Bakersfield, of all places, to see Sugarland in concert. Mahina had been talking about seeing them perform since they were on tour with and opening for Keith Urban. We finally managed to score some seats and hit the road for the long drive to the middle of no where. 

Once we made it, we immediately realized that we were about to be in the midst of a very rambunctious, beer guzzling crowd. But as soon as the concert started Sugarland took over and rocked the stage. They had incredible stage presence and were extremely enthusiastic throughout the whole show. There isn't a whole lot more to say about the show - Sugarland was incredible and put on a great show. It was nice to see an artist who spent a lot of time throughout and after the show signing fan memorabilia and gave one lucky fan a signed guitar. 

If you can check out the show, we highly recommend it!  We had such a great time at the concert, that we actually bought tickets to another one of their concerts in Los Angeles in July.  Stay tuned for that post!
