Summerland @ the LC

In case you haven't been able to tell by our lack of blog posts, the last month has been insane for Katie and Elaine - OK mostly for me. I spent some time in Boston for the HOW design conference, then I was in South Carolina visiting my sister, and between all of that Katie and I went to New York for a photoshoot. Anyways it's been crazy, but last week we finally got together again (outside of work - we do sit 3 feet from each other all day long) and went to the Summerland Concert Tour.

The bands at Summerland were: Marcy Playground, Everclear, Lit, Gin Blossoms and Sugar Ray. We only saw Lit, Gin Blossoms and Sugar Ray because we got there after Marcy Playground had already finished and we didn't really care about seeing Everclear. It was awesome! After what seemed like weeks of 100 degree days in Columbus, Ohio, we lucked out and had perfect weather. Gin Blossoms were AMAZING and sounded so good but Sugar Ray stole the show. Mark McGrath was hilarious and talked the entire time, also they played only the hits. It was like a time machine took us back to 1999 when we were just awkward junior high kids who thought we were cool.

It was a fun night and if you haven't been to an outdoor concert at the LC you need to go! As the lead singer of Gin Blossoms would say, this is going to be our new theory on life: "We have come here tonight to kick ass and chew bubble gum, and we're all out of bubble gum." So let's kick some ass.

Also for anyone who is interested... The Gin Blossoms sing a song called "Hey Jealousy" not to be confused with "Hey Penelope". One of us (who will not be named...) began to sing the wrong lyrics when they played that song. To prevent that from happening in the future, just wanted to clear the air. It is called "Hey Jealousy."
