A LOT has been going on recently, so I’ll be posting them in separate posts as not to overwhelm you too much. ;-) First, a happy birthday today to AndrÃ©a, my best friend from high school.
Last week, I was able to snag some tickets from one of my coworkers. It was for the show “Stomp!” at the Fox Theatre in downtown Atlanta. The show was on Sunday, so as soon as we finished church we headed down. Stomp is a garage band that make music solely through beats and rhythm, and using their hands and/or items typically found in a garage (garbage cans, brooms, boxes, even sand).
It was amazing. I was quite enthralled by not only the fact that they were able to keep the beat and rhythm without official instruments, but that they were able to make it visually interesting as well! That has got to take some amazing coordination and lots and lots of practice. Sometimes they would toss each other the props they were using, and they managed to catch it and continue on with the “song” without missing a beat. It was so cool – I highly recommend going if Stomp comes to your area!
After the show, Paul and I went to the Varsity for lunch. That was fun – we enjoyed being together (of course, he is my favorite person in the world, after all). We were going to go to a concert at our church that night, but we decided with all the running around we just were too tired.
