Saturday night the beautiful and wonderfully talented Jason Mraz played downtown Vancouver at the Vancouver Centre for Performing Arts--I'm ashamed to admit, I didn't even know this venue existed! It's so beautiful! I love love loooove live music. x4. For real. Yup, believe it. :) So, I was actually in Chicago at the Barlows, on my birthday no-less, when I saw that Mr. Mraz was coming to Vancouver! I immediately facebook'd my best friend Jess who was serving as a camp counselor in Ontario and also messaged my brother Brandon who was away for eight weeks at an internship program in Seattle. As you can see on this map, the distance was quite amazing. ;) Ah, I'm such a nerd! Anyway, we were all brought together for this amazing night.
P.S. I have this love/hate relationship with concerts--it's like a homesick feeling. I always wish that I could go and re-experience the concert again and again and again for the whole week. That's why I would rather see a movie I've already seen when I go to the theatre rather than a new one. I like to experience things again. That's why I read books twice.
So, you see, the people above in the photos with me are maybe two of my favourite people in the world. Maybe. I just love them soooo much! The top right hand photo is of Lisa Hannigan who opened for Jason and was FANTASTIC. Artsy. Folksy. Indie. In a Vintage Dress. Beautious. Check out her myspace for sure! Jess+I were head over heels for her. Jess has a thing for Ireland. ;) & then there is Jason Mraz doing his thing on the bottom left.
Story time folks! Ok, see that photo on the right? Well Brandon took that of Jess+I on his cameraphone. The concert had this cool thing before it started on the screens that if you wanted to text a photo or a message to the number listed they would play it on the screen. So Brandon sent this photo in and throughout the night it played on the screen! And, if you check out the photo on the left, there's me and Jess! We're famous! Another funny story: the photo that kept flashing right before ours was of Erin Gilmore, the beautiful Vancouver wedding photographer. I've never met her, but we're Facebook friends and with her amazing blonde curls, you can't mistake her. ;) I messaged her this morning on Facebook and turns out she was the one who took that photo on the left and once she knew it was me she posted it on Facebookk. So thanks again Erin! :)
This photo would just be Brandon & I and our sexy faces. Yup.
