CONCERT: Brothers hold the line


If you've been reading our recent posts you can easily put together that Chris and I have seen our fair share of concerts over these last two weeks.
And in an effort to keep riding that 'concert high' I finally saw Matt Costa.
I love Matt and I've been waiting to see him ever since I missed him the last time he came through Utah.
He played a great show, he didn't leave anything out. Just a perfect set.

But the make a good thing even better opening band, Delta Spirit, blew me away.
Having immersed myself in amazing performances over the past week it would have taken quite the show to awaken me (in fact I was asleep for a portion of the first opening band), but Delta Spirit did it. It was moving music (not the kind that makes me want to cry, rather the kind that makes me want to move) and the whole band seemed to be having a great time on stage and that energy just made the show. Well done.
The highlight of the evening for me was Trashcan, just a great upbeat song complete with an aluminum trashcan lid/tambourine hybrid.
They're fun, try them out.
