Live Music!

This weekend I got to see Cut Copy in concert. My first time seeing them in 2009 they were amazing. This weekend they were fun, not as amazing, though I think that has to do with the fact that in '09 they were touring in support of their album In Ghost Colours, which I was really into at the time and their follow-up album was so-so (haven't listened to the new one I picked up at the show yet). Still I had a good time and it was a nice reminder of why I enjoy live music. The crowd tends to help. There was a chick who asked me if I could move just a little, and when I did she hugged me and said thanks. Then there was the young couple next to me smoking weed, the young latino offering me a hit (I politely declined, but thought it was cool of him anyway). Then there was the tall, very cute bear at the front, who nicely asked these 2 shorter girls behind him if they could see. He was dancing and waving his hands enthusiastically, he was really into it. I think he was straight (though just cuz he was there with a girl didn't necessarily mean he was) but then he also turned around and complimented a dude's mustache behind him, who was there with his boyfriend, so that was cool. Then there was the very enthusiastic gay bear couple next to me, who kept singing the lyrics, jumping and dancing to their favorite songs. And finally there were the balloons with sparkling lights in them that kept bouncing all over the crowd, as well as the glow sticks that kept flying everywhere. I got pegged by a few, and one even broke open and left glow ink all over this oblivious girl's shirt. I recall the last time I saw this band the audience was also really cool, so that was nice. I realize that crowds aren't for everyone, but for those of us who enjoy the chaos, it can be a real fun time. The pic above is the back of the head of the tall cute bear, the best pic I could get of him without being obvious, hehe....
