You need to understand how much I love My Morning Jacket. They are my favorite living band of all time. The past two times I saw them definitely rank on the top 10 best nights of my life. They take me there in way nothing else can musically. I have a moderate to severe obsession with Jim James, the lead singer. Laci and I have spiritual experiences at these concerts. The fact that we got tickets so last minute and everyone was able to make it out, was a borderline miracle. Before Friday, I was already getting butterflies in anticipation for this show. I was so excited.
The My Morning Jacket concert yesterday was amazing. Of course. There was a phenomenal jazz band that opened for them (Special guest singer, Jim James with a 1950's megaphone. Yeah, that happened.) and then joined them for the last three songs of the night. Which included, Highly Suspicious, with horns and an upright bass. It was heaven. I was with my best friends and had the arms of a special somebody who is really tall and is rather adorable :) wrapped around me-- yet I was grounded. When I should have been soaring. I am so full of worry and anxiety. I love you Nanaw. I'll be there soon.
