Ok. So once again, I’ve slacked with my posts. A lot. But I was motivated today by the desire to post pictures from a concert I went to last week (November 1)–Derek Webb.  Delayed, yes.  Very delayed.   (And, by the way, consider yourself warned that the pictures below were taken with my phone–i.e., not the greatest quality.)

Anyway, for the most part, I’d much rather go to a small concert–where local or at least indie (-ish?) artists are playing–than to go to one of those big, can’t-move-can’t-think-can’t-breathe shows.  I’ve been to a number of big name concerts and while they’ve usually been fun, there’s just something more intimate about a small venue (obviously).  And I think music is, should be, or at least can be an intimate thing.

Now, without further ado…

Marc Scibilia opened.  I’d honestly never heard of him before.  It was just him and his guitar on the stage but as soon as he started to sing, I was hooked.

I bought both of the cds that he had for sale.  However, I’ve barely listened to his first cd, as I’ve fallen a little bit in love with the “from brooklyn to maine” EP.  What I have listened to of the first album, though, seems worlds apart from the EP.  I’m not sure how much I’ll love it, when I’m finally able to tear myself away from the EP, but regardless, this guy has a real voice & I’m looking forward to seeing him in concert again (he told my friend & I after the show that he thinks he’ll be back in Ohio again before the year is over, if I remember correctly, with his band!).

Next up, of course, was Derek Webb.

It was a lot of fun.  Was my first time seeing Derek Webb in concert & I’ll definitely be looking for him when he tours again!
