Hello, friends! After a stressful weekend of working both Saturday and Sunday, AND dealing with a certain little strudel doodle being sick, I am quite ready to take the day off and relax. However, I should clarify that as an adult, “relaxing” actually means laundry, grocery shopping, cleaning the bathrooms, and taking the dog to the groomer. Womp Womp.
Anyway, I’ve got to tell you about a must-listen artist, Noah Gundersen. My friend Mary introduced me to him and on Saturday night we went to see him in concert. Friends–it was pure magic. I love a good live show, and Noah & Company did not disappoint. From Armon Jay’s opening, to the magical harmonies of Abby Gundersen’s voice, I was completely captivated. Apparently, everyone else in the audience was captivated too–seriously, there were no raucous drunks trying to pretend to sing along, no side conversations going on during slower songs. The entire venue was so silent–you could hear the toilet flush back in the bathrooms. This is a testament to Noah’s talent, and the energetic dynamic of the whole band when they’re all on stage together. (And, okay, maybe the toilets in the bathroom are actually kind of loud.)
|We were in the front row and I took a total of two pictures. I’ve failed you all.|
I ended up buying Armon Jay’s album last night, because the CDs were sitting right there and I had a crisp, new 20 in my pocket waiting to be spent. I listened to it on my hour long drive to work this morning, and it was so perfect for my mood–quiet and relaxing and beautiful but not enough to make me want to fall asleep.
What music is fitting your mood this week?
