We saw Keane last night!  Here is how it happened: Drewbles heard someone mention the upcoming show on the radio.  He mentions this to me.  I say "Let's go!" in a squeaky sigh.  Drewbles investigates tickets.  Drewbles scores tickets for $10 each.  Huzzah!  So off we went.

We decided to be extra adventurous and take the Trax up to Salt Lake.  It was more uneventful than adventurous but mostly it was successful.  We arrived, staked out our bit of grass and got a dinner of concession food (pizza and nachos--both winners).

First Kiev played.  Look at them, playing music and stuff.

Then after a while Keane came out to play!  Let me say now that I fully admit to not being any kind of dedicated music person.  I don't spend much (=any) time finding new music peeps and I don't really care about seeing people in concert.  It's just not really a big thing for me.  But that said, I did get rather giggly when they came out, maybe because I love Strangeland SO much.  

Anyway, hello, Keane!  Let's be BFF.  

Here's a bunch of pictures:

(Did I mention that there were two very tall people in front of us?  Luckily they sat down for a lot of it.)

I liked their show so much that I even shelled out for the overpriced t-shirt.  Doesn't that say it all?  I confess I was a little nervous--you never know how someone's going to be live--but I was not disappointed.  (Phew.)  You know who else wasn't disappointed?  The mom in her khaki capris and cardigan who was REALLY excited to be there.  Also the dancing guy in the football jersey and black pleated skirt.  In other words, a good time was had by all the different types of people in attendance.   

As a bonus, now Drewbles is their biggest fan ever and they are his most favorite people in the world.  Well, that might be an exaggeration, but he has been won over.  Win win! 

Now, what's that mysterious ticking noise?  It's the countdown until August when we'll go see Harry and the Potters AND Potter Puppet Pals.  Ohhhhhh yeahhhhhhh!


  1. Such great pictures! Even from a greatish distance and very zoomed. You have become such a pro. And I'm so glad we went! It was an awesome deal, but even better, it was an awesome show. Sea Fog!

  2. Sounds like fun! I'm glad you had a good time. $10 tickets are the best!

  3. I went to see the a few years ago (for the Spiralling tour, maybe?) and found them completely delightful. They're just so enthusiastic and fun and cheesy-British! I love them so. Glad you had fun!
