Darius Rucker Concert

Angel and I went to a concert on Wednesday--the first real concert that I've been to. By real, I mean a concert that we actually had to pay for, plan on going to in advance, and featuring a singer that other people have actually heard of. I've been to many wonderful church concerts, but never to something on this level.


My favorite picture from the night! We tried many times to take our picture, always ending up with the camera pointing at the wrong angle, therebye photographing the people seated around us, or else our faces were in shadow because of the bright sunlight. That explains Angel's worried look. He's thinking, "Will this one finally turn out good enough that Rachel won't make me take another?"


And there's Darius Rucker! The guy with the fancy red microphone and the guitar. He played my favorite song of his, as well as lots of other good ones, so I was happy. Angel was happy when he played songs from Hootie and the Blowfish.


See? He really liked those songs. I didn't know any Hootie and the Blowfish songs, though, so I was confused, but everyone else was very excited. I also learned that at concerts you pretty much stand up the whole time. At least that's what Angel, my more concert-experienced half, says. 

This is my favorite Darius Rucker song. I first heard it shortly before I got married, and I sent it to my parents, who have a whole bunch of daughters growing up rather quickly, and who weren't able to be at my wedding. It made me cry then, and it made me cry at the concert, too.

Hi Rachel,

I just popped in from the SITS Girls forum where you responded to a thread I posted. Just wanted to say I think you are so cute, and I love your blog.

I'm a writer, too, and I wish you great things on your writing journey :)

How fun! Taking photos of yourselves is so hard. We have the same problem too. Even with a tripod it's still difficult. I'm looking for the summer to get to more outdoor concerts, too bad that it's still the end of Winter here! :/
