I AM COMPLETELY BLISSED-OUT FROM THE CONSTANTINES' SHOW TONIGHT!
LOVE AND SWEAT AND SPIT AND BEAUTIFUL NOISE WERE ABUNDANT.
DETAILS TOMORROW, AS I'M GOING TO SQUEAL WITH GLEE A BIT LONGER AND THEN GO DREAM ABOUT THESE BEAUTIFUL GUYS.
AND IT WILL BE A DREAM FILLED WITH MUCH LOVE AND GRATITUDE.

I can smell the hotness from the picture, WOOHOO GIRL, I'm so glad you had a wonderful time!

Now that I'm jazzed on your adrenaline I want to hit the Sasquatch Festival next Thursday, though...

I can't wait to read your review!

Yay Barbarella! Looks like you got up close and personal w/your guy! Good pics - he is much hotter in person I think. Your hubby better stay in your good graces, as you are becoming a Calgarian Mega Watt Super Star! ;) You need to quit your job and work as a talent scout for an Indie record label!
xoxoxo

Can't wait....I'm sweating just waiting for the review.

Okay okay, I have a confession to make. This pic is not from last night's concert. We stupidly did not bring the camera, as our concert pics always turn out to be little blurs of light from a million miles away.
So of course, last night Eva was right up against the stage and could have gotten some great photos. oh well.

It was just smoking there last night, Michelle. If at all humanly possible you should try to see them at Sasquatch. They are the most aggressive, hardest working band I have ever seen.

I wish I had taken that pic, Kellee, but Eva did get a considerable amount of Bry sweat and spit on her - lucky girl.
Ah, I'm just a small fish in a small pond. Talent scout for an indie record label would be mega fun though!

There was no shortage of sweat last night, that's for sure, Ben. And the Cons are heading back to the UK very soon:
May 31 - London, UK BRIXTON ACADEMY w/Editors, The National
I highly recommend this show. (and
Editors! ooo!)

I hate to admit this, but I have not really listened to the Cons. One of the sliped through the cracks bands for me, but from your excitment, and admiration for them I'm going to go now!

Allison, you're in Vancouver these days, right? You can check out the Constantines on May 25 -
Vancouver, RICHARD'S ON RICHARDS with Chad Van Gaalen and Blood Meridean.
And tickets are super cheap - ours were $18.00.

Allison said...

Barbara,
Thanks for the heads up, I just may do that. I'm looking for a show to go to for my birthday, and those tickets fall into my price range...that being cheap, as I'm a poor student..lol

Barbara Bruederlin said...

When's your birthday, Allison? Happy happy one to you! I can guarantee you'll have an excellent show for the money if you go see the Cons. They are beyond description.

Will said...

Sounds like an f-in blast.

Barbara Bruederlin said...

It was amazing, Will. So amazing that I trashed the review I wrote (because it was crap) and I'm starting again today.
They Constantines will be in San Francisco soon, you know:

Jun 09 - San Francisco, CA CAFE DU NORD (with Oakley Hall, whom I don't know)
