The night before last we drove up to Austin to see one of our favorite musicians Rocky Votolato play at Stubb's. It was a long awaited show, and the perfect timing for us to get out of town for a night, which I think was much needed.
Matt Pond opened up for him and I was blown away by their performance. Honestly, I had listened to his stuff online before and couldnt really get into it. But at this show they really broke it down to just him singing on guitar, one other guitarist and a cello player. It was soulful and completely struck my heart. The cello hit me to the core, along with his true to life lyrics. Loved every moment of it. And Rocky is even more amazing live, his voice is so full with the perfect amount of raspyness to it. Not to mention he is as adorable as can be... (insert girly smiles and giggles)... He played some new songs that will be on an upcoming album that I loved, along with some older favorites. Very good show, and so glad we went. I was so tired that day I almost said lets not go. So Im very happy I didnt wimp out.
James really doesnt like his picture taken, or else there would be a million of him on here... im lucky if i get one where he doesnt look mad or silly. I have to steal them any chance I get!
I wore one of my newer Skyline Fever shirts to the show, Im completely in love with it... we need to get more of these! we only order one s, m, l... and they are all gone before even going in the shop! When paired with cotton leggings, its the most comfy outfit in the world!
Dorking out with my Rocky cd's to listen to on the way :)
I was so excited that he played my all time favorite song of his, Instrumental... so so happy. I brought my flip with me just in case he played it!
Enjoy the video :)
