I think it's been about a month since I've posted. Terrible, I know. I have so many photos to upload, too. And a few stories to share. Like how on Canada day, A got us backstage passes to Parliament Hill celebrations. Unreal.
Things have been hectic in the capitol... just how I like it. Speeding right through most of June and half of July-- The last 2 weeks were Bluesfest. I saw GirlTalk (seriously love) and Steve Miller Band (I'm pretty sure I was transported back to my childhood for that hour and a half!) and danced the night away. I picked two days. That one and the final night-- Lupe Fiasco, Cheap Trick, John Butler Trio and Death Cab for Cutie. A freak rain-lightening-ish storm hit and the main stage-- the one we were about 30 ft from, crashed to the ground (see the vid). I was shaking. It was intense. The night was cancelled (so no JBT or Death Cab) and we dragged our soaking wet, completely shocked selves home.
Today, I get home from work, looked at Twitter and I see a guy I follow (thanks JF) had posted about John Butler playing a free show at 7pm about a 10 mins walk from me. I looked a the clock, it was 6:50. I grabbed my bag and ran(!) to the park. I made it just in time and was about 6 people back.
Such a great hour! He went though the crowd, made everyone sing a long and was just awesome to watch.
