I have a confession to make.

Although I have been fighting The Sickness, I haven't exactly been doing all I can to expedite the healing process.  A week ago Saturday, Miss Lucinda had tickets to go see an amazing band called The Gaslight Anthem at the Cabooze in Minneapolis.

As I had already taken the night off of work and Miss Lucinda already had tickets to the sold out show, I couldn't see not going.  It was amazing.  There were three opening bands, Frank Turner, The Loved Ones, and Murder by Death.  If you've not heard any of them, I recommend checking them out.

We were crazy close to the stage for The Gaslight Anthem.  I had the unfortunate experience of getting caught up in the first mosh pit I've experienced since sometime in the 90's.  I'm not really sure why, as The Gaslight Anthem isn't really a moshing kind of band.  Check out this link below for thier song "Great Expectations".  It's one of my favorites by them.

And of course, what super close up live music experience is complete without a few pictures....

Sounds like fun. Glad you decided to get out... that's awesome. Have never heard of those bands. I will have to check them out for sure.

Hope you're feeling better soon :)

Sometimes doing something 'normal' can make you feel more human and better again!!

Hope you get well soon !

It's great fun to go see a band. It always makes me feel young, until I look around the audience and realize. . . I'm not.

That was TOTALLY the case! But we still had fun!
