ET with the Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra?! This is going to be amazing! I toyed with bringing my ET to sit on my lap. Then I thought, no don’t be a fool. Be classy. Then, they had their own display! Dang it!

Untitled

Tons of people were taking selfies with it. I could have made some $dough$ if I brought my guy… who talks too!

Untitled

I was going to sell him… maybe not now!

You Too? @ U2

I was hanging out after #Corporate Challenge volleyball to cheer on the cornhole team. Amazingly, free U2 tickets were being passed out. WTF?! I’m not a huge fan, but not a hater so yes I’ll take free tickets! Lucas Oil Stadium transformed for some music.

Untitled

Once I started saying to peeps we are going to the show, everyone else was too! Let’s see it! They opened the Joshua Tree tour with power on the walk-about stage.

Untitled

I was impressed with the lights. Sometimes, I’m just a little kid loving sparkles.

Untitled

Bring me my sparkles!

Blinded

Travel. Travel. Travel. Love it! But I was ready to kick off my shoes and hear some music in the Lawn!

Untitled

These kids invited us to go see Third Eye Blind with them. Because I love 90s music anyway, I didn’t do any research on their more recent stuff. So I went in prepared to be underwhelmed by some cheesy 90s band. Boy was I wrong!

Untitled

Not only was the company with the V’s great, TEB put on a helluva show!

Untitled

Untitled

While I enjoyed “Semi-Charmed Life” & “How’s It Going to Be”, I loved their later stuff too. Definitely being added to the playlist.

Wherever I May Roam

Previously.

Let’s roam over to St. Louis!

Untitled

Untitled

Just as we finished up at the Arch, a storm rolled in. Seems like I’m cursed with rain on my first day of travels lately. San Diego, St. Louis, Seattle…  geez.

Untitled

We made it back to the room just as the rain hit.

Untitled

Once that burned off, we were ready to rock out at Busch Stadium with Volbeat and Metallica!

Untitled

Untitled

What you can’t see in the pictures is the drizzling rain that came back. Everyone was getting wet. Thanks to our ticket snobbery, we were relaxed and dry.

Untitled

The stage was magnificent! 5 huge video screens played vibrant images of the band.

Untitled

And who doesn’t love it when they add fire! You could feel the heat from our seats. I can’t imagine what it felt like on the floor.

Untitled

The crowd loved every bit.

Untitled

“It’s unbelievable after 36 years we’re still up here making this noise,” Hetfield told the crowd. “I can’t believe you still like this.” Yes sir we do!

Untitled

As soon as we got home, Metallica Guitar Hero battle ensued.

Big Fun for ICC

A new reason to get fancy!

Untitled

Grabbed a few friends and attend the annual fundraiser for the Indianapolis Children’s Choir. It was not just another chicken dinner.

Untitled

Everything was so delicious!

Untitled

Untitled

I heard the dessert was great, not my thing but it looked pretty!

Untitled

We didn’t win anything in the silent auction. Maybe the live auction will treat us better! We didn’t get the front row seat, this guy did… well, I guess that’s ok since he and the Mrs. were the event’s Honorary Chairs!

Untitled

We were treated to several songs by the different choir groups. Several. Feedback to the group would be to cut down some songs. It was a long event. Long.

Untitled

Very grateful for the experience!

Basement Rock

Time for more music @ the Deluxe!

Untitled

Red Sun Rising bailed as an opener. Bummer. Bad Flowers kicked us off. He reminded me of AAR cracked out lead singer. That concert a few years back was so disappointing, I didn’t even blog about it.

Untitled

They used the whole stage.

Untitled

Can’t believe it had been 5 years since the first time I have seen Pop Evil.

Untitled

Stop watching through your damn phones people! You are blocking my view too!

Untitled

For the encore, Leigh got down into crowd. I’m glad no one was a douchebag and did anything stupid. I want these guys to keep coming back!

Untitled

We had a clue this was going to happen.
