Wow! What a concert! I woke up yesterday morning with Over the Rhine on the brain. Quinn and I were originally going to go, but then he had decided to stay home (lack of funds for a babysitter). We called Rachel, who was thinking about going and gave her Quinn's ticket (Happy Birthday dearest). So yesterday I got a call from one of Quinn's former students, Meredith, and she was calling because she had seen that OtR was coming to Workplay and she thought that I would like to go. And then she offered to keep the kids for us so we could go. She and Abby Falls trecked out here and kept the babies for us so that we could all go together. Thanks girls; what a lovely gift!
We had a great time! The Tillery's rode with us, as well as Rachel and Laura Morgan, minus the G man (babysitter issues). When we got to Workplay, Jeremy and Christa Soileau were there, as well as Abbey and Michelle, oh, and Thomas, the 5K guy. Garrison Starr opened and she was quirky and had good banter with the audience. I liked her style. Then, after a short break, out came Over the Rhine. Honestly, I think this concert was my absolute favorite time of seeing them. They are phenominal live. She is so pashionate and their music is so original. I love to watch her face when she sings. Amazing. I feel stupid even trying to communicate how cool the show was. You'll just have to check them out for yourself. They are coming back (again!) to open for Ani DeFranco on March 15 at Workplay. I'll be there.
