Lights

As K and I arranged our next major concert, I realized I hadn’t checked my music emails in a while. So on a Thursday night, I found a concert I wanted to see on Saturday. But it was near Cincinnati. Could I talk K into it? Luckily she had family living 6 blocks from the venue. No arm twisting needed. Roadtrip!

But before we got there, Karma led me to meet Pam.

As soon as I saw Pam, my eyes went straight to her necklace. I’d only ever seen one like it before. Who doesn’t need a gold road runner on a chain?! It’s my pimp chain!

After a friend’s mom passed away, he didn’t know what to do with all her jewelry. So he let some select friends take a few masterpieces from her collection. I was drawn to the roadrunner. It was so unique. Pam said she gets compliments every time she wears it. I need to break mine out!

Before the show, we had to a make a stop at the bar with the most bourbon I’ve ever seen. I think Angels were singing when the door opened.

I had no idea where to begin. Told the bartender/owner what I liked and asked him to surprise me.

Delicious sippers!

After missing the opening act Phases (strange coincidence though as we will see them next year), we caught the tail end of the Mowgli’s set before our headliner.

I was impressed. Lots of change ups with who was the lead singer. The Mowgli’s included the lost Hanson brother. He must be terrible at singing MMMbop.

Lights on stage!

Lights is her name, not the bands. Strange, but I had a total chick crush by the end of the show.

Not only can she sing, she plays guitar and keyboard.

This venue was very intimate. It was an old house turned into a music venue. View from the 2nd floor.

Only complaint was the smoking section of the bar @ the venue. You could smell it before getting in the house. Thank small town Kentucky venues. Keep believing it’s an ok habit to support.
