Hope everyone had a happy Valentine’s day – whether you had a sweetheart to share it with or not. I know that any kind of good company and good will can make a day or night special 🙂
I had a really good Valentine’s day myself. Didn’t do anything too special, just took some time to indulge in the day and each other. Had a nice lunch at Earl’s, then afternoon coffee at Starbucks. In the spirit of making the day a good one for both of us, we grabbed some snacks and some wine, and watched the Canadiens game at 4. Well, he watched. I napped.
After that, we went to the John Mayer concert. Oh my. He’s such a cute little performer. I was quite impressed with the Pacific Colliseum as a venue. The accoustics were actually pretty darned Ok. Better than many shows I’ve seen at the Garage, that’s for sure.
A couple points to note:
1. Maroon 5 is excellent live. After downloading a few of their album samples, I’ve decided that their recorded sound makes me want to vomit. Unfortunate for them.
2. See John Mayer live if ever you can. He was able to make a big venue feel intimate, spoke well when he chose too (neither too little or too much) and thanked everyone profusely for attending, despite the price. He played just the right mix of older and newer stuff, and only included one “brand new” song (lyrics and melodies subject to change, of course). He also didn’t play any of those horrid “tribute” covers that so many more seasoned acts tend to do.
And I was able to walk up (the security at the colliseum is decidedly much more forgiving than the thugs they usually employ at GM) from my 24th row seat to the front of the floor many times during the concert and snap a few pictures. Apologies for the blurriness. He’s a physical performer, and I was excited.
Overall, a lovely day that led into a lovely, relaxing Sunday, which will hopefully seguay into a good week 🙂 I hope you all have one too!
