Sorry for all the exclamation points, but I LOVE Regina Spektor. Her latest album, What We Saw from the Cheap Seats, was my summer album. Like most of her other work, it is happy/sad. No, not bittersweet, happy/sad. It has one of the most joyous songs I've ever heard, and songs that make me cry every time I hear them. I cried through most of the concert, which was exactly what I wanted to do!
The Ryman is a lovely, lovely place. We saw Ms. Spektor there once before, also Flight of the Conchords and Elvis Costello! But not together, though that would be awesome.
I carried my Laloran sketchbook that I got at the Urban Sketchers Symposium, and sketched the tall guy who sat directly in front of me. I feel like this same guy sits in front of me at every concert, movie, lecture or whatever other kind of show I go to.
Oh well, it was a great show.
