Is U2 really my favorite band? No. . . but I'll explain why I've labeled them as such. Back in college, on my first day of a three semester program, where I would take classes with the same 20 people each day, we were asked who our favorite band was. This was an ice-breaker to get to know one another. I could have said Snow Patrol, Jimmy Eat World, Red Hot Chili Peppers, or any number of bands I really loved. . . However, I had just spent the entire summer borrowing my dad's iPod which only had two CDs downloaded on it: U2 and Lady Gaga. So, under pressure, when it was my turn to answer the question, I blurted out U2. For the next year and a half, different events would arise in class (U2 music videos being played, U2 coming to Austin, etc.), and my classmates always pointed out whatever U2 relevant facts they could muster. So, I vowed to learn as many U2 songs as I could to live up to my 'lie'. Truth be told, I really do like U2, so last night really was a blast!
The Lumineers were the opening act, and they knocked it out of the park. They played favorites like 'Ho Hey', 'Stubborn Love', 'Ophelia', and 'Angela' (wonder why I like that one ;)). Then, U2 came on and played a 2 hour set. I think my favorite song of theirs is probably "With or Without You", but it's hard to pick just one. Everyone was singing along, and the fanfare was incredible. It was a night to remember!
Harper got to stay home and play with her Mimi (and Uncle Ross & Aunt Jana too!), and she didn't wake up until 9:30 this morning! This preggo mama will take all the sleeping in she can get these days!
