Less than three months behind now!
June ended with a whirlwind of concerts -- Lady Gaga, Brad Paisley, Luke Bryan, and Outkast: four days straight! I actually don't listen to contemporary country music (though I can talk about late-90s country for days...) but my motto is that you don't turn down free tickets!
My recommendations, for what it's worth:
Brad Paisley -- a big MEH. If you are offered free tickets and don't have anything better to do OR if you are a big Brad Paisley fan, then you should go. But I wouldn't pay money to see him or go much out of my way.
It was definitely the most diverse audience I've ever been in (which I love) and it's put me into nostalgia (I can't tell you how many times I've listened to "B.O.B." and "Ms. Jackson" over this summer!)
Max, as always, is begging for head pets. Calypso, who had been wandering around my counter, wound up settling on my stick (which I keep handy in case I need to remove Max from the stained glass: so high up!) and doing the parrot-equivalent of the barrel-roll.
