The start of a weekend to remember

I got to leave work early on Friday so I could get on the road and meet up with my good friend Erin and head to the O.A.R. concert. O.A.R. is my favorite band. I love, love, LOVE them! It was at the Starlight Theater. A beautiful outdoor venue. We were a little concerned about the weather b/c there was a threat of storms. It did rain briefly which was great b/c it cooled everything off and made the evening that much more enjoyable.

As we were walking up to the gate, we were approached to see if we wanted a yellow wristband... that would upgrade us to VIP seating! As we walked in we were asked to donate a dollar and take a spin on some wheel that had various prizes. I won an O.A.R. t-shirt & Erin got to put her name in a drawing for backstage passes. She did not win, but we both had a blast. Here are some pictures.

The opening act - Citizen Cope. They were great!
And the timer... This was new!

We were about 10 seats back. Marc's voice sounded amazing.
And Jerry... Wow. I think he stole the show! At once point he jumped in the crowd and kept playing!
We are 2 very happy girls!
Loved all the different lights
Here was the night's playlist:
City on Down
Conquering Fools
Dareh Meyod
One Shot
The Wanderer
About an Hour Ago
So Moved On
The Town
Mr. Moon
About Mr. Brown
Shattered (Turn The Car Around)
That Was a Crazy Game of Poker
Love and Memories
Delicate Few
Over and Over
Lay Down
