Road Trippin’

There are few things that I love more than a concert, unless it’s traveling.  Combine the two and I’m an extremely happy mom.  This weekend I’m putting the Mom hat away for a few days and traveling to Ohio with my favorite IT guy.  Why Ohio?  It’s one of the stop-overs for the Gentlemen of the Road (GOTR) tour.

I can’t tell you how excited I am to see some of my favorite bands: Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros, Old Crowe Medicine Show,  and Mumford and Sons.

Last year my favorite IT guy and I traveled to Dixon, IL for the same tour, with Mumford and Sons headlining.  It’s been over a year since that concert and I’ve been thinking about how amazing the concert was every single week since.  It was seriously the best concert I’ve ever been to.

The highlight of the trip was when we went to a small theater to listen to more live music, after the concert.  We were exhausted, leaning towards falling asleep.  Around 1:30 in the morning who should grace our presence, but Mumford and Sons, playing acoustically!  There were only a few hundred people in this theater and in my mind, was one of the greatest concert moments I’ve ever experienced.  My phone’s battery was long dead, but luckily others in the crowd were able to capture some of the magic.

What’s the best concert experience you’ve ever had?  I’d love to hear about it!
