My computer is about 90 in human years. It is on its last legs and may or may not last very long. It has been giving me a little bit of a problem tonight and other then going Office Space on it, which would be gratifying, it is my only blogging option at the moment that I can post a picture or two. So, this post will be quick while it cooperates with me. I swear it plots against me to act up when I need to use it most.
I went to the Bank of America pavilion in Boston last night to see Ray LaMontagne and David Gray in concert. It was a nice night for a concert and our seats were on the edge of the pavilion so we also had some air during the show. We were running a little late but we got there just in time as Ray was just starting.
Ray was awesome. I loved his music live. He played Beg, Borrow or Steal and all of this other old and new songs. He has such a good voice and is comfortable singing and is not as pretentious as David Gray is. I love you David but you have an air about you. Secret Sister had never heard Ray’s music has become a new fan. I love the blues feeling it has and that fact that I can relate to a lot of the songs.
David played one of my favorite songs in the beginning of the concert. I love Sail Away. Some days, it is all I want to do. I wanted to hear a few other songs like Say Hello Wave Goodbye but we did not stay until the end. I have seen him about 7 times in concert and I was exhausted. We called it a night a little early. Yes, I was a fuddy-dud.
All of the pictures I took of David’s show came out wicked dark. I need to learn to use my camera better.
Music is a great calming agent. It calmed my Mother down when she was anxious and I can feel its calming effects on me when I am going through some issues. It was really calming me last night. It was exactly what my doctor would have ordered had she known. I was waving my arms, singing, laughing with my sister and having a good time.
