more RRT Austin

OCMS and Mumford & Sons
RRT Austin

It was really cool seeing Marcus Mumford and the rest of the band come out and play with Old Crow Medicine Show. A great show made even better. A lot of the Edward Sharpe bunch came out to jam with them, too. Pretty fun! A great start to an awesome show. Oh, yes, the wait was worth it. So close! :-)
I'm gonna do a seperate post for Mumford & Sons and the closer with all the bands up on stage. Coming soon.

spring cleaning....errr...

so i was 'sposed to do some spring cleaning all weekend, but what did i do???
you got it...i stitched all weekend long. Sublime Stitching is having a contest using the Mod patterns. Just what I needed to get me going. Should be done with it in the next few days!
Man, I would really love to win that contest. First prize gets their embroidery piece posted on the Sublime Stitching website 4evers and a $100 gift certificate! Wowzas!
oh, and I learned a new stitch. Bullion...kind of a pain. but looks neat.

so there was this Railroad Revival Tour that I went to in Austin, Texas on April 26, 2011. It was amazing! Old Crow Medicine Show, Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros, and Mumford & Sons. It really was truly amazing! What an absolutely wonderful time.
Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros were great! I've been listening to them for about a year now. Love their fun, fun music, and their spirit of love! :-)
and there was a wonderous sunset behind the crowd that had all the bands pointing and oo'ing and ah'ing.
there's that cloud! there's tons of pics of it on the interwebs.

Alexander...(aka Edward Sharpe) he loved being in the crowd. do you see my pretty "Lacey Lilac" fingernails??? I touched him. hahaha. :-)

There he is again. RIGHT THERE! so neat.

Alexander and Jade...singing the most lovely and cute song ever - "Home"

And next is a little video I took of "Home." Really wish I woulda got more of the song, but ya know, I hate to stand there recording half the time and I also wanted to save battery and room on my camera, and last but not least, I HAD TO DANCE! <3<3<3

i'll post some more about that lovely little concert getaway soon. i like reliving it!!
