Good tunes & a lot of booze

by K.J. Cardinal

After going nearly five years without seeing my favorite band in concert, I was lucky enough to be able to go to the Fisher Cats Stadium in Manchester, N.H. to experience the Counting Crows once again.

Collective Soul and Live opened for Counting Crows, which was nice, but the highlight of the night for me was being able to hear two new Counting Crows songs that will be featured on their new album coming out this fall. I can’t wait.

At any rate, I had way too many Red Bull & Vodkas and washed them down with a handful of stadium beers, which always have disastrous effects on me, so it’s a miracle that the two videos from the show came out as good as they did. Overall it was a great night...especially because nearly my entire family was there.

It was great to get Angie out to her first Counting Crows concert and I guess it could count as Anna’s first CC show too because she could hear Adam belting out those lyrics in the womb.

Thanks a lot for coming Mom, Dad & Katie...we wish you could’ve been there Tiff & Pete.

Take a look at the two videos above that I took from the concert.

** Unfortunately youtube made me remove these videos **

  1. For the record, these Counting Crows videos have made me a youtube legend. As of right now these videos have over 6,000 views. I know...I'm cool.
