The BEST concert!

Jared & I went with Pam & Jason to the Colin Hay concert last night at Swallow Hill. For those who don't know who he is, he was the lead singer of Men at Work in the 80's. He went off on his own in the early 90's and is extremely talented. You might recognize one of his songs, Overkill, that recently got big again from the show Scrubs. I put the video from the episode below...
It was by far the best concert I have ever been to. He is amazingly talented and puts on a great show. He has a hilarious personality and had the whole place laughing for two hours. It was evident that he loved being up there and playing off the crowd.
I'm not the type that enjoys the big lights, big show, smoke machines at a concert. The BI
G stuff ends up distracting from the talent and great music. The concert was held in a small auditorium at a local music school off of Broadway & Yale. We were in the 8th row and there weren't too many rows behind us. Colin put the entire show on by himself. He was up there with his amazing voice, a guitar and a microphone. It was incredible! Afterwards we got to meet him and get his new CD autographed. I couldn't leave without getting a picture with him. It was a wonderful night & thanks to Jodie & Tyler for watching the kiddos.

Remember this one? His newer acoustic version is a lot better, but it sure brings back some great memories.

wow that looks like so much fun. it has been such a long time since i've been to a small concert like that. the venue can make such a difference. sounds like a great night!

The last small concert i was at with Gin Blossoms ages ago. i remember we shouted out a request and they actually played it. Then they threw their guitar picks at us. My friend and i were 15 and were pretty sure we had "arrived."
