Shut up and dance
Nick and I just saw Walk The Moon, a band from Ohio. We’re on our way home now. Most people would know Walk The Moon for their hit Shut Up And Dance. It’s the only song I know by them. Often that isn’t enough to get me to see a band, but I felt like it was going to be good this time.
I was right! It was awesome. I couldn’t sing along to anything except that song, but that was OK. We had a good time dancing anyway. We spotted Pete from Hey Geronimo, too. I’m no longer surprised that we spot him at gigs. :P
I have to say that I will be listening to more of Walk The Moon now, now that I have seen them live and enjoyed a lot of their songs. There was one called Avalanche that I really liked, and one funny one that stuck with me was I Can Lift A Car.
I wanted to photograph the band, but didn’t get a chance for that to go through. Since their show sold out I think it is unlikely that they would give out free passes anymore. At least I bought our tickets before then, and enjoying a concert without carrying a camera is always a nice break.
I am typing this post on my phone, something which I don’t usually do either. I find it a bit limiting. I used to add thumbnail images to all my posts but I think I have now given up on that. It makes me laugh because when I first implemented thumbnail images on my blog in 2012, I actually went back to all my old posts and created thumbnail images for all of them. :/ Adding thumbnail images via my phone is a bit annoying as I am very specific about them. The same goes for photos, which I like to resize and compress so I am not uploading large files.
It’s rare that concerts are held on Sundays, too. The band finished up around 11pm. They started later than their scheduled time (grrrr) but I suppose the venue had a curfew too.
What bands have you seen recently?
