Picture Tag!

Lovely Snow White over at Snow White and the 76 Dwarfs tagged me in the picture game. You are supposed to post a picture and tell the details about when, where, etc.
I was given the number 8-- so the 8th folder and the 8th picture.

This computer is new and all my undergrad pictures are still on my old computer. So, luckily you will be getting this picture instead of one of me doing something utterly ridiculous like a body shot off a man dressed like Captain Jack Sparrow...or something like that.
You are going to have to look reallllllllyyyyyyy hard to believe me, but...That is the Dave Matthews Band and Dave in the middle with the guitar. This past summer Boy and I went to Rothbury--a Music Festival in Michigan and Dave was one of the headliners. Although you can't tell from my picture because my camera is a piece, we stood pretty close as we danced and shouted lyrics for hours on end.

I can easily say that it was the best night of my life. EASILY. The whole show was just ridiculously amazing, Dave was phenomenal, and the band was just unbelievable. And, the best part of all-Boy was with me the whole time. When I listen to the live tracks from that night I continuously get chills down my spine, remembering and relishing in every detail of the whole night. I loved the whole festival, but this night will forever be remembered as one of the times in my life when I was happiest and most at peace.

I still love Dave, even if it isnt cool anymore, and a girl in my apartment building is from Charlottesville - her older sister "dated" (i use the word loosely as he was probably seeing more than one girl) Dave the summer before Under the Table & Dreaming came out. Crazy!

DMB shows are always like that for me in some way. I always have such good memories of the 4 I've gone to. I'm going to my fifth this April!

I've never been to a DMB concert but I can only imagine how great it would be! His music just has a way of making me nostalgic!
