My Hanson Day

Now, now, before you make fun of me for being a teenie bopper, go to my Soundtrack to Sewing tab and check out the new Hanson album, Shout It Out. Because it is awesome and not teenie bopper.


Now that I've made my disclaimer, I can continue. So my friend from college had an extra ticket to see Hanson, and since Rooney was opening (who I need to add to my SoS btw...) I was super excited! We went down early to attend The Walk, which is a mile long walk barefoot (I cheated and wore sneakers for my back) that Hanson puts on. They donate $1 for each person who attends toward an AIDS related charity of their choice...I, of course, chose building a school. It was a pretty nice walk, even though the humidity made it a little sticky. We arrived 10 minutes late, due to bad directions from google maps, and almost getting t-boned by an ice cream truck! A little jog over to the crowd and we ended up walking by Isaac the whole way. He was pretty friendly and chatted with some of the fans. At the end of the walk, we stopped by a beach and a cemetery...weird place to talk about AIDS charities, but never-the-less it was pretty inspirational.


Afterward, we walked back and registered so our dollar would get donated and then headed out to lunch. I don't know how many people are familiar with the South Shore, but the town we were in was very small and seemed like it was in the middle of nowhere (pun intended). We found a Japanese restaurant and hung out there for a while until it was time to head to the concert venue, the South Shore Music Circus. A very small but clean and beautiful venue with a rotating stage.


The show was awesome. Rooney opened up and played some stuff I haven't heard, but also played a couple of my favorites from their first album. The Hanson portion was full of really high energy, great music, and of course, lots of screaming. We were able to sneak up to the front so my pictures turned out really great. The BEST part of the show, in my opinion, was their cover of Oh! Darling by the Beatles. I was able to get a pretty good  video of it...you can watch it here. One of my favorite bands playing my favorite song by my absolute favorite band = kickass.


I had fun taking up close pictures of the drum kit, the guitar pedals, and so on. If you're not a fan of Hanson, I apologize for this non-sewing-related post. If you are, enjoy some of my favorite pictures.

  3. I did have a good time, and the best thing was that I didn't have to sit, so my back didn't bother me too much. I even jumped at one point...and how could anyone NOT enjoy that song...it's a classic! :)
