Concert Love.

The main reason we visited WI last week is because my awesome brother got us all tickets to see Needtobreathe, one of our favorite bands.  As a bonus, one of their openers was Drew Holcomb, singer/songwriter/leader of another one of our favorite bands! We stood outside in a ridiculously long long right on the riverfront in the chilly fall air, and I loved every second of it.  Being in Milwaukee = home.

Drew Holcomb sang solo without his band, The Neighbors, but it was an awesome performance and had a nice intimate feel to it (especially since I was standing about 4 people away from the stage!)

We've bought most of our music online, so we took the opportunity to purchase 3 of the Drew Holcomb & The Neighbors albums, and also chatted with Drew for a bit!

The second opener was Parachute, a band I'd never heard of before, but I enjoyed hearing them rock out.  And finally, Needtobreathe began their set.

It was one of the best concerts I've ever been to - they are amazing live performers.  Their song, Washed by the Water is a jam, but they turned it into a straight up blues fest (with a little mash up of their song, Lay 'Em Down) and it was SICK!

Overall, the concert left me inspired musically, and was a great time to spend rocking out with Matt, Manika, & Nate.  Coincidentally, the tour is playing here in Jackson, MS tonight and we almost splurged for tickets to see them perform again...but alas, we are poor.  *curse you Ticketmaster and your ridiculous surcharges!*

What's the best concert you've ever been to?
