Last night Kendra and I kicked off her Amazing Birthday Adventure (she will be turning *ahem* years old next week, and we’re going on a trip to celebrate . . . in fact I’m writing this post from the airport. Look! The future!) with a concert.
My longest-standing favourite band ever ever is Roger Clyne and the Peacemakers (previously known as The Refreshments of “Banditos” fame). They’re a band local to Arizona and despite getting brief national/international fame, they’ve stayed true to their Southwestern roots. I’ve seen them in concert more times than I could possibly count.
As it turns out, their first album ever, Fizzy, Fuzzy, Big, and Buzzy, is turning 20 years old this year. It can almost drink! To celebrate, the band decided to perform the entire album, in order. We couldn’t pass up the chance to see a performance of the album that has been playing as part of the soundtrack of my life for better part of my adulthood.
As a bonus, it gave me the chance to test out B2 under less-than-ideal conditions. Very close people; quickly changing lighting, though mostly dark; people moving around a lot. I took a TON of photos and a surprising number turned out great. I’m only posting about ten, because after a while, they just become repetitive.
Hope you enjoy . . . and here’s to life!
