Notice the ticket says “A December To Remember”? And notice it’s March? The show was postponed twice, I was supposed to go on December 19, but they moved it to March. Because I decided too late I wanted to see the band, the show was sold out, so I stayed in the hotel and was able to buy a ticket.
How was fun.? fun. was fun. The band Family of the Year opened and they were great to watch. They said we were an “amazing” crowd. This was very flattering, although I’m sure they say that to all the crowds. Here’s a clip from the show. This song was clearly their big hit as the sing-along got very loud. I particularly enjoyed watching the bass player, whose hair and stage mannerisms were straight out of 1994. I say that with love.
fun. was a good time. They were apparently jet-lagged, but enjoyed us as a crowd as evidenced by this clip. I was interested to see how they would sound live as there are only three of them, and yet many more sounds on their songs than three musicians can make. They solved this by having additional musicians on stage. I particularly enjoyed watching Emily Moore (at least that’s what Wikipedia says her name is) who played a lot of instruments. I learned the lead singer’s sister lives in Portland, which was an interesting fact. And I particularly enjoyed hearing “The Gambler.” Here’s a clip of “Carry On.“
