Cabbage!

I'm trying to get caught up around here & I realized that I never gave you the low down nitty gritty on the Gaelic Storm concert! 
Here it is...


We arrived at the venue a good 45 minutes before the show started.  I had been advised that seating was limited & that no tables could be reserved.  Armed with that info we arrived early & were happy to see that we were only about 25 people deep in line.  We're good, so I thought.  Not so much.  When we got inside we wandered for just a moment because none of us had been there before.  It was also dark inside & our poor little eyes were super dazzled from the bright setting sun.  Long story short, the balcony was closed, there were quite a few reserved tables, & Autumn's socializing skills were put to the test as she made friends trying to find us seats.  She was successful & I was super grateful because while I can certainly stand for the length of a concert, my dear momma cannot.  Autumn, you're a peach!  And I love how you have never met a stranger.

I snapped a couple pics as we waited for the show to start.

All in all, it was a super fun show.  I would definitely recommend you get yourself a ticket if they are anywhere near you.  If you like Irish pub music, that is.  They were super fun, down to earth, & amazingly talented.  After the show was over they all came out & just mingled with the crowd, signing autographs & taking pictures.  They featured their new album, "Cabbage" which is full of fun songs & rousing instrumentals.  My personal favorite, 'Space Race' says:

They say there was a Space Race,
If there was I guess I missed it.

From the earth up to the moon & back...
Well, doesn't that take the biscuit!

The song then goes on to lament about how there are no Irish astronauts.  Maybe I'm goofy, but I think it's hilarious.

Here's to belly laughs & toe tapping rhythms!

ha ha I know I'm tired when I read your whole post thinking you were talking about some crazy group called "Garlic Storm" huh. ;-)

Hah! I'd better go through the post & make sure I didn't actually type 'garlic' in there somewhere :-) Thanks for your comment - I got a loud belly laugh from it!
