Moon Over Firefly
Well, boys and girls, that about does it for the Firefly Music Festival 2012. All my photos and videos have now been posted. Admittedly amateur, but I hope you enjoyed them. In case you missed any, you can find them all here.
I want to say thank you to my best road trip buddy Gretchen, who came with me to Firefly even though she wasn’t familiar with any of the bands, and who stood with me in the rain during Jack White’s show, and who slowed her pace to keep step with my hobbling. She even took a break from veganism to help me hunt down Delaware’s best ice cream. A true friend. ♥

Do you have a video of My Body at Firefly? :3

I’m afraid I don’t, but I do have the first 43 seconds of it that I took with an iTouch when YTG opened for Incubus in Miami last year. It’s not much, but I guess it’s worth posting just to hear Sameer Gadhia reminding us that it’s a rock show - if you want to get up, you can get up!” :-)

I only managed to catch the end of Young The Giant's set at Firefly, so here’s the best I could do from so far from the stage - a few pieced-together clips from Cough Syrup and Apartment that I hope won’t make you too dizzy (unless that’s your normal reaction to Sameer Gadhia). Hard-core YTG fans will get it.

Stay tuned, my lovelies! I’m on my way home from Firefly, and if I make it back in one piece I’ll have some fairly decent video for you of Walk the Moon, Jack White, Young the Giant, Cake, Modest Mouse, The Killers, Awolnation, Death Cab for Cutie, The Flaming Lips, and The Black Keys. It’s a miracle I made it out of the Awolnation crowd alive! More in a couple of days…

Firefly meetup?

(Sorry, Browncoats, I mean the other Firefly.)

If anyone wants to meet up at the Firefly Festival this weekend, just look for someone who is probably around your parents’ age, either hobbling around with a cane, or on crutches, or just limping if I’m having a good day. (Now you really want to meet me, don’t you?)

Just my luck a chronic illness chose this of all months to come out of remission, but eff-it, I’m going anyway. A specialist could have shot me up with some hellacious (but effective) meds by now, but somehow the "but I have to go see Jack White" excuse wasn’t considered enough of an emergency. Can you believe that?

Meanwhile, people are starting to post their “must see” lists, so here’s mine:

Friday - Jack White
Saturday - Cake, Modest Mouse
Sunday - Awolnation, The Flaming Lips, The Black Keys

I’ll be happy with that, if I can manage it. My “B” list includes The Killers, Grouplove, Death Cab for Cutie, The Wallflowers, Walk the Moon, Imagine Dragons, and Young the Giant - and before you Young the Giant fans start giving me a hard time for not putting them on my “A” list (like you did a few weeks ago when I described them as “kinda” cute instead of “hella” cute) the only reason is because I’ve already seen them once. I do plan to make every effort to catch them again, though, and as a sign of good faith, here’s a hella sexy screenshot:

Inter-band awesomeness, and a sweet Harvard mousepad.

Wait - Modest Mouse is going to be at Firefly too? Could this festival (for which I just got my very high-tech wristband) possibly get any more awesome? This is why I’m so frustrated, because after ten years of normal, a chronic illness has suddenly reared its pesky head again, and I can’t really walk or stand for any length of time. Worst of all, I was so proud of myself back in May when I saw Incubus and had to stand up for hours. I had to laugh, because all the young people around me were groaning, “oh my back, oh my legs,” and I said to them, “hey, I’m at least twice your age - if I can do this, you can!” Hopefully, those days are not over for me. I won’t be better in time for Firefly, but I’m still going, dammit, and will do the best I can. I mean, Jack White, the Black Keys, the Flaming Lips, Cake, the Killers, Awolnation, Young the Giant, Death Cab for Cutie, AND Modest Mouse? Even if you had to hobble, wouldn’t you go anyway?

Another peace offering for Young the Giant fans. I was at this show. VERY cute.

One more Young the Giant appreciation post for all those serious fans out there, a few of whom I’m pleased to say have started following me (now that I’ve redeemed myself). Fair warning - I blog primarily about Incubus, but it’s nice to have some new friends. Actually, I’m supposed to be seeing YTG again next month at Firefly. Meetup, anyone?

A thousand pardons, Young the Giant fans. I humbly withdraw “kinda,” and concur that they’re extremely hella cute.

Young the Giant streaming live from Bonnaroo right now. I saw them open for Incubus last fall. They’re kinda cute.

Young the Giant - Apartment (Acoustic)

I saw these guys open for Incubus last September and thought they were kinda cute. Heard them on the radio today and decided Sameer Gadhia has a lovely voice.
