More pictures from the DMB concert on September 29th. These were uploaded just last night, since the broadband connection here is MUCH better than at home.

On September 29, 2009, the marvelous [personal profile] asqmh and I attended a fabulous Dave Matthws Band concert in North Little Rock, Arkansas, at Dickey-Stephens Stadium. HOW SO FUN?!

First of all: I ditched a computer training course at the hospital for this. Come on. How could I not?

We left at like 1:30 or 2-ish and drove to Little Rock. Q kept trying to take a nap but the fact that we cannot HELP but talk about fascinating & important subjects (like makeup, politics, cupcakes, religion, attractive men, fashion, and world peace) hindered the nap greatly. When we arrived in Little Rock we found the stadium right away. I yelled out the window to ask the waiting fans what time the doors opened, and they yelled back that it would be 5pm. We drove across the bridge to find a bathroom & kill a bit of time at the River Market, which I maintain is one of the coolest places in any large city. Seriously, anyone who comes to visit me from now on is getting a River Market visit. I love it so. We bought souvenirs there; beaded necklaces & earrings from a nice lady named Becky and sunglasses from a little tourist trap called Shop the Rock. Mostly so Q's retinas would not become charbroiled.

At about 4:45 we got back in the car and crossed the bridge again...very very slowly this time. Traffic was getting very bad in anticipation of the concert. We still got a pretty choice parking spot. I'm glad we chose to come down early & get in as the doors opened.
This is long & has a metric buttload of photos )

hillarygayle: (Jeff 2 saxes)
Gratuitous icon post to show off my tiny little Jeff Coffin. Playing 2 different saxes during Squirm (I think) at the Little Rock show. I also have one of him actually playing 2 at the same time during Jimi Thing. I lose my marbles when he does that.

Photos from the concert are uploading to Flickr now. I chose 85 out of the 404 that I took. I evidently had my camera set on a smaller photo size than I meant to, but that's okay. I am short and there were lots of people in front of me, and I do not have a good zoom lens for my DSLR just yet, so the photos weren't as great as they could be. As the next concert's photos will be. ^_~
