but the celebrity sightings seriously paled in comparison to the experience of seeing one of my favorite bands live. quickly after the show started we all abandoned our spread of food on blankets and stood as close to the stage as possible. i was moved to tears on more than one occasion. we all were. then after a while i walked back to our blankets and just closed my eyes and listened. at one point i even laid down and looked at the stars while some of my favorite sounds in the world floated around me. it was magical. i'll never forget it.
the only thing that could have made it better would have been to have my Davey there, on his birthday. i felt bad for leaving him behind, but seriously when Sigur Rós comes to your city and you're fortunate enough to get a ticket, even if it's on your husband's birthday, you go... and David understood that. he had actually had tickets to see another band on his birthday, but when we moved he lost his tickets. so because i felt so bad that i went without him we are celebrating his birth all week long, so don't feel too bad for him, ha ha!
here is the tiniest of tastes of what it was like. i wish you all could have been there.
and here a some of the shots that i was able to capture that night.
