I'm pretty sure the last 3 concerts I went to were to see Britney Spears (don't hate)—the last of which was probably 2 years ago. Don't get me wrong, I love a good concert—but it's not on my top 5 things I'd like to do when I have a night off. And I really like music—in fact 80% of my brain space is filled with song lyrics—but I'm not a big concert goer. This wasn't always the case.
A little band called Dave Matthews Band dropped a couple albums: Under the Table and Dreaming and Crash—high school and college kids in the 90's went crazy. I was one of them. I had to go to every concert that A. was in a 200 mile radius from my parents' house and B. my parents would let me spend the $70+ on.
It's been a really long time since I've seen DMB in concert or even cared to for that matter, but DAMN! the design for their Caravan tour has blown my mind! Just look at this beautiful vintage, circus-y gloriousness:
I love how after a concert has passed they stamp the photo like you would a passport and then make it into a link to see photos, as opposed to being static images. SMARTY PANTS!
Hmmm. Governors Island is less than 60 miles from my house...looks like I'll be sending this link to McMuffin to see if he wants to make it our next date night.
