the head and the heart.
Yesterday I went to go see the Head and the Heart! It was one of the most ridiculous nights in a long time...including the moment when I jumped onstage to get a copy of the set list :) Here are some pictures from last night! They were really hard to photograph because they dance so much, but I managed to get a few decent shots.
Driving to the city...I really love the Bay Area.
The show was at Bottom of the Hill. It was a small, intimate venue--the best kind.
The opening act was the Devil Whale. They were alright...not my favorite.
Half of Team Alice! We now have a Facebook fan page...it's pretty great.
FINALLY, the Head and the Heart came on!
Such an amazing show--their album is good, but it isn't until you see them live that you understand how absolutely incredible they are. Afterwards, we go to our car to find that the battery had died. While waiting for roadside assistance, we went back in to the venue and ended up meeting half of the band! They were all super nice, and Tyler (the drummer for THATH) offered to jump start our car. Unfortunately it was a zipcar and we had to wait for special assistance, but it was really great (and let's face it, really fucking cool) of him to offer. Charity hung out with us for a bit and was the nicest person ever. I have a lot of respect for musicians who take the time to talk to fans, I'm sure it can get annoying but we really appreciate it! After about 45 minutes roadside assistance finally came!
Sierra was SO HAPPY to get into the car, haha.
Overall, it was a great evening with amazing people, and a much needed break from the stress of school.
Speaking of! I have my last day of class (ever!) today, my thesis is due a week from today, and then I have two finals. That's it! I can see the light at the end of the tunnel and I couldn't be happier.
