Disclaimer: You know those annoying fans that stalk their favorite band? I’m not one of those.
The first thing I did when I knew that it was certain I’d be flying out here to the Northwest was to look up Late Tuesday’s concert schedule.
June 17 – Marysville’s Strawberry Festival.
Strawberries? Excellent music? Sounds like the recipe for a fantastic day … or a great birthday gift to myself.
I woke up at six to beautiful rays of sunshine streaming through my window. It was a sign! (The odd thing about Washington is that whenever a patch of sunshine reveals itself someone in a crowded building can look out the window and point, “Look! Sun!” People have been trampled in the mass attempt to exit the building to enjoy the fleeting bit of sun … even if it was only around for mere seconds.)
Sadly, it was difficult to find a strawberry among all the hullabaloo at the festival.
Anyway … I highly recommend their latest album … even if Nathan isn’t their manager anymore … After the concert, no one was really hanging around so I went up to talk to the girls while they were taking down their equipment. Ha! It was wonderful to find out that the artists behind the lyrics that so spoke my own heart’s thoughts were as wonderful in person as I imagined them to be.
Jocelyn, Tara, and Dana are each magnificent girls. (roll eyes) I’m not just saying that from a few second conversation while getting them to sign my CD cover.
No, the girls ASKED if they could eat lunch with me. Later, we went to the outlet mall together. (No, I wasn't stalking them. "Hey! Imagine seeing you girls here!")
