i saw the black keys this past friday night at great plaza at penn’s landing in philly. i got there right as they went onstage and by then the venue was packed – my one complaint about this venue is that if you get there late, you will not be able to see the stage. it’s a great spot though, right on the river, and it was a beautiful night! the next show i’m going to at great plaza is my morning jacket and i will be sure to get there early for that one :)
the best part of the show for me was the beginning – they opened with “thickfreakness,” “girl is on my mind” and “10 a.m. automatic,” all awesome songs. they played a lot from their new album too and it sounded great!
this friday is local natives at first unitarian church yay!
“little drifters” is a project organized by booooooom and the vancouver sun, in which they asked people to gather pieces of driftwood, twigs, leaves, berries, dandelions, pine cones, feathers – pretty much anything that can be considered “natural” – and build a little boat using only these materials! they were then asked to take their boat to a body of water and take a picture of it. i LOVE them! such a creative idea and people put together the most beautiful little creations. here are some of my favorites…
the project was largely inspired by the work of lenny, who had this tip that i really liked for some reason:
“masts and sails don’t make them go faster, it just means you can see them for longer as they drift away.”
a few of our fp girls attended the kings of leon concert at tinley park in chicago this past weekend and shared some photos for the blog! i love their outfits - i hope they didn’t have any incidents involving pigeons… :)
