MacGyver did a good thing, Ladies.
He wooed me with music.
The music of Iron and Wine, to be exact.
This past Friday night, my ear drums danced with delight. Sam Beam is a singing genius. The really cool part is that it was a benefit concert for the Midwives Alliance of North America, and Mercy in Action. Mr. Beam has done this concert every year for the past 4 years. Cool as all get-out, right?! Midwives are near and dear to my heart, as all of my children have been born with their assistance and love, so it was doubly cool to be able to attend. Check out the Mercy in Action peeps and the amazing things they’re doing in the Phillipines.
Thank you much, Mr. Beam, for being so darn awesome.
Sorry for the blurry photo. This pic was taken outside the Paramount Theatre after the show. MacGyver did his best.
As far as what I wore….I wanted a little elegant, a little funky, and a bit laid back all at the same time. Gotta say, I absolutely love how this outfit turned out. And I’m fully 100%, crazy addicted to my latest Endless.com purchase:
It was such a great night, I’ve decided we need to take advantage of our proximity to Austin for the next 2 years and devour it’s music scene. MacGyver needs no encouragement. He’s an avid concert-goer. Ever since high school, in fact. (He once got kicked out of a Cranberries concert for jumping on stage, the rebel). He makes the jaunt up to Austin quite frequently for his own ear drum enjoyment, and will be one of the masses at Austin City Limits this year (he’s so stoked).
I should specify that Mr. Beam’s concert style was right up my alley; I’m not much for mosh-pitting, having my Anthro dresses reek of second-hand pot, and getting all my toes stepped on, thank you very much. Smaller venues, air conditioning, and getting frocked up for the night….now we’re talkin’!
Any ear drum dancing parties in your life lately? Or a fun event to break out an Anthro piece? Lay it on me.
